Former Spy Caught at White House Luncheon

Did you hear about the spy that slipped into the Annual Design Awards luncheon here in the East room last Friday? Apparently SPY magazine founder Kurt Andersen.nearly had the vapors when Lady M brushed his seersucker:

“It was the National Design Awards; I did not remove my jacket, but I was the only person in seeruscker (sic); more mesmerized than bored, especially when, moments before this picture, the First Lady slowly brushed her hand across my shoulder as she made her way to the podium. (Also: I stole a paper towel with White House insignia from the bathroom.)”

Puh-lease … and Kurt, baby, I don’t care what you read in the NYT fashion section, seersucker is sooo bourgeois.

First of all, Lady M never touches seersucker, and secondly, she doesn’t “brush”. She “fist-kisses”.

Now Kurt, go answer your doorbell. The Secret Service agents want the towel back.
