Youre welcome BellaDonna. She was very coy in the interview. It does make me wonder if working as a hostess is how she met Larry Gagosian. Doesn't really matter tho, I love the fact that NY Mag has called her "a modern style muse".

I love how she carefully answered the questions, and yes if the hearsay is true they met when she worked at Nobu. Thanks for sharing mighty isis!

Every girl's dream is to meet a rich man in NY. I love how she kept the details discreet.

That article is getting a mixed reaction, and I definitely detected some shame about her background and even how she met Larry. Regardless, can't hate the player. It's nice to know some more about her.

^i felt that way too, but I just think she didnt want this to be a sob story, and that she continues to move forward instead of constantly looking back.

not sure if this was posted already but she is in the Best Dressed section of either Vainity Fair or HB ... [I was looking through both mags last night and can't remember exactly which one it was ]

I don't particularly think its shame about her background because she references it all the time on her blog - stories of her childhood, on why certain styles or types of clothing are sentimental to her.

I think the "shame" or at times cagey responses have to do with how she came here. Maybe she over simplified the timeline but; she came on a trip to Miami as a prize for a beauty contest, then she ends up in NY staying with her uncle, gets a job/tries to attend college (on a tourist visa?), then ends up working at a restaurant then BAM Gagosian and the fairytale life begins.
I'm guessing initially she didn't have correct documentation.

either way regardless of how she began I'm happy she is where she is NOW.

Shala did a good job of talking about herself yet not giving much information. Of course it makes you all the more curious.
This. ^^^ I feel like I didn't really learn much about her at all. But I guess that still keeps this air of mystery around her.
