Graydon Carter announced today that VANITY FAIR would go ahead with its Oscar Night bash. For those invited, you are to report to the Sunset Tower Hotel on February 22, 2009. For those of us not invited, this is supposed to - like all premium-branding strategies - help us to feel left out, hopefully, less than.
My hunch is that there will be plenty of protesters outside Sunset Tower Hotel and angry Tweeters. Graydon will love that. That's what the Upper Crust [Crusties, we call them] does.
