Coming Out of the Elevator: Anonymous Condé Nast Tweeter Revealed

Five days. Thirty-six tweets. Seventy-six thousand followers. That was the lifespan of @CondeElevator, a Twitter account formed for the sole purpose of reporting ludicrous, albeit hilarious, banter from inside the elevator at Condé Nast headquarters in New York. (See excerpts below.) The creator? One of their own – former GQ editor Lauren Bans, who revealed her identity in a spontaneous tweet last month. In an interview with GQ, Bans said, “I came home real drunk last night, read an article about the Goldman Sachs Elevator guy in the New York Times, and then impulsively tweeted my ‘coming out.'”

Let me fill you in: The day Bans sent her signing-off tweet to @CondeElevator for fear of jeopardizing her job, the anonymous @GSElevator account popped up, seemingly tweeting the same sort of gossip – only from the elevators at Goldman Sachs. Two and a half years later, @GSElevator comes out as finance expert John LeFevre, admits he was inspired by @CondeElevator, and signs a six figure book deal with Touchstone.

Molto Bene: Giuseppe Zanotti Launches a Clothing Collection

In the world of high-fashion footwear, few designers possess the power to consistently set tongues wagging the way Giuseppe Zanotti does with his ultra-sexy stilettos. (Just check out a Shoe Cam or two at this Sunday’s Academy Awards, and you’ll see what I mean.) If, like me, you’ve ever flipped through your favorite fashion glossy and wondered how Zanotti’s sporty and sometimes punk aesthetic would translate to a top, a pair of pants, or a dress, wonder no more. The Italian designer has launched a new clothing capsule collection.

The best part? The collection is described as showing a mix of “hip-hop aesthetics, urban influences, and sportswear inspirations,” which might just be a nod to the superstar designer’s DJ past. For his devotees, it means clothes that go from runway to reality with utmost ease.

Spoiler Alert: George Clooney Smells Like Soap

The jig is up: Perfection does exist. And it lives in Clark Gable‘s multi-bajillion-dollar house. Oh, and it’s a dog person.

Or at least according to Esquire‘s Tom Junod:

He has a long neck, upon which his long head, adorned by long ears, wobbles like a tulip. Everything is to scale with him. Many people have long eyelashes; he has lashes as long on the bottom as they are on the top… He has recently showered, and a careful modicum of product lifts his hair off his forehead. He has surprisingly fine hands. He smells like soap.

Okay, okay, rub it in a little more. Clearly Mr. Junod was too distracted by Clooney’s eyelashes to ask about his love life. I suppose that’s how the man of mystery wins everyone over – chivalry and charm. They’re so flattered that personal inquires seem insulting.

So until one brave soul manages to break his shell (has Oprah tried yet?), we’ll just have to settle for perfection.

Watch: A rare video of Anna Wintour (sans sunglasses) at the premiere of The Great Gatsby. Intimidated by everybody? We find that hard to believe, Anna.
