Hedi Slimane Personally Ensures That Texas Is Cool

It’s not often we curse New York for not being cool enough. It’s even less likely we’d ever think, We wish we were in Dallas right now. But leave it to Hedi Slimane to make us want to hit the Lone Star State. Yes, our dream crush is going to the land where the hair, cars, and steaks are bigger, better, and badder than anything we’ve ever seen. Hedi’s photography is showing at the Light & Sie gallery, and he’s going to physically be there tomorrow, July 31. It’s not too late to buy tickets — we’re actually debating it — just for a chance to be in the same airspace as a demigod. And, just to make us stomp our feet and lament even more, our very own tastemaker Jeremy Kost is joining him, showing his Objectification series. Oh, did we mention Vanessa Beecroft is also displaying? Yeah, thanks for making us feel left out, Dallas.

For those of you who just happen to be cruising through the Lone Star State, the show runs through mid-September. —Amina Akhtar
