A Brush with a Brant
Despite that Harry Brant has barely cleared puberty, the social-buzzing, babygay spawn of model Stephanie Seymour and billionaire media/art/real estate tycoon Peter Brant, has a busy schedule that rivals those of Paris Hilton and Olivier Zahm. This past Friday at Emporio Armani’s 601 Madison Avenue boutique opening, we approached the 16-year-old high school sophomore to find why is he out socializing with Roberta Armani, Luigi Tadini, Ms. Hilton, Ricky Martin, Ryan Lochte, artist Rashaad Newsome, Anna dello Russo and Kate Lanphear, when he should probably be cracking those Algebra books.
“What have you been up to today?” we asked.
“I went to Rag & Bone. I liked it,” replied Mr. Brant, smiling profoundly.
Last week, fans of The Notebook got some exciting news: Ides of March star Ryan Gosling was getting his own coloring book! Thanks to pop artist and pop culture paper doll creator Mel Elliott, you too can now own a little piece of Gosling to color in any way you like. Choose from whichever Gosling suits your erotic fantasy: the book has everything from Drive Gosling to Blue Valentine Gosling to Lars and the Real Girl Boss-Gos.
If you haven’t heard of Peter and Harry Brant yet, you should be calling the Postal Service and Time Warner to find out why they’ve discontinued service to that rock you’re living under. The teenage sons of paper mogul Peter M. Brant have been everywhere lately: gracing the Style Section of The New York Times, tweeting from a shared Twitter account and being profiled in this week’s lugubrious three-page spread in the latest issue of Vanity Fair (to make matters worse, the piece was titled “Little Lord Flauntleroys”).
Now the blood is in the water, and its officially hunting season as the collective new media aims to take a shot at these young male socialites.
