The following is an excerpt from my piece “How Stella (Schnabel) Lost Her Groove” as featured on The Style Con:
“Burn the rich.”
That was my friend’s response to a recent video I forwarded her (accompanied by my email subject header “WTF I DO NOT UNDERSTAND”) of Stella Schnabel, daughter of multi-millionaire multi-hyphenate art man Julian Schnabel, dancing half-naked against a green wall, shot by another downtown darling in her own right, photographer Rachel Chandler. It had all the elements of everything I hate: white girl dance hall vibes, bad lingerie, and wealth masquerading at creativity. I wrote my editors, prepared to rip this sucker – and everyone involved – a new one. Rich bitches, feel my wrath!
