Our L.A. correspondent Sydney Sadick caught up with Cali native, author and designer Lauren Conrad at the launch of her final book in the “Fame Game” series, Infamous, at Barnes & Noble at The Grove.
The who’s who of the indie set descended upon the Bowery Hotel on Wednesday night to fÃªte quarterly culture glossy, FRANK151 magazine, and the launch of its 51st installment featuring the likes of artist Curtis Kulig, Jake Burton, Jenne Lombardo, Reformation, and Eddie Huang. The big news of the evening? The collectable pocket-sized reader, which has been gratis since its inception in 1999, will now retail for $10 in a larger book size, and will be available for purchase at its usual boutique lineup, plus at new partner Barnes & Noble. We caught up with founder and publisher Stephen Malbon pre-party to get all the nitty-gritty. Ready to get FRANK’d up?
