You Brits are taking over New York City (and most importantly my social diary). Long live the British Invasion! You know I met R Patz, guess who now….

As I walked into another of my fave NYC spots, it was no other than Mark Ronson grabbing hold of my gaze – see why I can’t tell you the spots I’m frequenting!? Ronson looked cool (as always) with his pompadour James Dean-like hairdo. He stood next to his hip friends with his signature combination of new school slyness and retro charm that enticed me just like R. Patz’s honesty did.

My fellow scene hound, Karina, was with me again (quite the lucky pair) and I could hardly keep myself from humming “Valerie” (or telling Ronson how many times I’ve danced to the tune in my underwear, ha!) as we walked past him to place my order at the bar.

I leaned against the bar, and felt the bathroom door nudge my back. The bar is small, so it’s not uncommon to get knocked as someone exits the toilet. I turned and moved the best I could out of the way – only to realize that the girl exiting the bathroom was Agyness Deyn. She squeezed past me as she made her way back to the booth with Ronson and the gang, but for a moment, I stood face-to-face with the face of now.

Karina and I looked at each other and didn’t even have to open our mouths to both think this: When did we start hanging out on Thursday nights at the same place as Agyness Deyn and Mark Ronson?

We slipped into the empty booth next to them. Agy wore a pair of denim overalls with a large black t-shirt underneath and a pair of black work boots. Her hair was parted down the middle and not styled. She’s always such a pioneering don’t, she’s a do. Call me self-conscious, but could you imagine the looks us non-super models would get if we went out for a night on the town with no makeup on and wearing a pair of overalls?

Agy and Mark weren’t interacting loads, but they were definitely chummy. Their booth was full of several friends, and Agyness seemed to be the star of the party. She was engaging, smiley, chatty and seemed just as cool as she looks. The paps need to give that girl a break!

In a crowd of the ultimate downtown hipsters, Mark and Agy stood out as the King and Queen of Cool. I sipped my cocktail, and thought, how do you Brits do it? (Comment and tell me what you think!) I had just seen Sir Paul McCartney in concert earlier that week, and I screamed for Macca just like the girls at Shea Stadium did in 1965. To me it seems that whether the Beatles then (and to be honest, still today) or Agyness Deyn and Mark Ronson now, those hailing from across the pond, effortlessly and overwhelmingly define the trends.

I didn’t chat up Agyness or Mark. They just seemed too cool for me to pop in to their conversation. I’ll stick to imitating Agyness from a distance. I got the high top sneakers, now I’ll just have to find some overalls.
