Says Scott Schuman: I Am Not A Dancing-Monkey Blogger



For a man who values understated style, discretion, and a modern definition of sophistication, Scott Schuman sure has a mouth on him. In the June issue of GQ, Scott — true to form — unloads his thoughts on his first wife, the front row, and that one Dolce and Gabbana fashion show where they put Scott, Garance, Bryan Boy, and Tommy Ton in the front row. "They got a humongous amount of press. 'Look, we brought the bloggers in and gave them the front row. Look at the dancing-monkey bloggers!' I could barely bring myself to sit down. Like, 'Ugh, I don't want everyone looking at us.' Like, 'Oh, look at the cute bloggers! Isn't that cute! Are they playing Angry Birds?'"

The rest of the interview paints a picture of Scott that's somehow simultaneously gentle and scathing: an aesthetic pioneer and an egomaniac, a doting partner and an "insufferable" over-sharer. Despite his dual personality, one thing's for sure — if Scott represents the new guard of fashion influencers, the new guard sure doesn't come with a filter (bring on the one-liners!). (GQ)
