An email from my grandmother…

HI KATE

LOVED YOUR PICTURES FOR LEVI. YOUR INTERVIEW ALWAYS IS WAY TOO FLATTERING OF THE GRANDMOTHER. BUT THANKS FOR THE PRESS. YOU ARE A BIT TOO SKINNY IF THOSE PICTURES ARE NOT AIR-BRUSHED. I WORRY YOU ARE NOT EATING YOUR TEN BOWLS OF CEREAL EACH DAY.

I’M GOING TO BE IN NEW YORK IN NOV. STAYING WITH PAT J. IN CONN. WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU AND BROTHER JOE ON MONDAY THE 5TH FOR DINNER. I WILL BE COMING BACK FROM PHILADELPHIA ON THE TRAIN AS I AM GOING DOWN TO SEE THE BARNES COLLECTION ON SUNDAY. HOPE TO BE BACK IN NEW YORK ABOUT 5 OCLOCK ON MONDAY THE 5TH. HOPE THAT WORKS FOR YOU. WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR APT BUT I KNOW YOU ARE BUSY. HAVE THEATER TICKETS FOR “BOOK OF MORMONS” AND THE IRISH REPERTORY ON 22ND ST. DURING THE WEEK. ALSO THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY EXHIBIT ON THE WESTSIDE RE: N.Y. DURING WORLD WAR 2. ALSO THE MET’S WARHOL EXHIBIT. ALSO GOING DOWN TO ELLIS ISLAND TO LOOK UP THE LOUSY IRISH RELATIVES. I HAVE NOT BEEN THERE SINCE IT WAS RENOVATED.

ANYWAY WILL BE ANXIOUS TO SEE YOU.

TWO WORDS ALWAYS,

RITA M.

Chez Leelee

The home features in Vogue never disappoint and the latest on Leelee Sobieski is no exception. I just love the warm, modern space — plus, Leelee’s stunningly chic wardrobe is cause for a serious girl crush. The actress lives in the Tribeca loft with her husband, designer Adam Kimmel, and their adorable daughter, Louisanna (great name, right?). The first shot with Leelee in Rochas in front of those sky high bookcases? I die.
