Mickey Boardman

One of fashion’s finest, the inimitable Editorial Director of Paper magazine (and Avenue contributor – he penned our Sean MacPherson cover story), Mickey Boardman is celebrating his birthday today. Happy Birthday to a New York legend who can be spotted everywhere from Taxi TV to the front row at Oscar de la Renta. Mr. Mickey (as he is known) is throwing a little party tonight with two DJs: Marjorie Gubelmann and Drew Elilott. Expect socialites, club kids, porn stars and the style world’s elite – it’s all in the mix.

To toast Mr. Mickey, we are sharing one of our favorite illustrator’s drawings of Birthday Boy Boardman. Marc B, a fashion-obsessed young guy living in Toronto who goes under the Twitter handle “Tom Ford is My Dad” did this divine drawing of Mr. Mickey: haute couture on paper.
