Doonan's Law


Simon Doonan has made a career out of being right. As the Creative Director of Barneys New York, Doonan has combined a razor-sharp aesthetic sense with an acidic wit to create a style so pervasive that even a hack Midwestern writer wearing $15 pants and a decade-old sweatshirt knows what Barneys is and (even more unexpectedly) who Doonan is. Remarkable. Doonan's latest book, Eccentric Glamour: Creating an Insanely More Fabulous You, champions his belief that dressing down is the only faux pas. He further elaborates on this theory at 7 p.m. at the Dillard's at the Saint Louis Galleria (South Brentwood Boulevard and Clayton Road, Richmond Heights) as the guest of the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival. Style advice, delicious anecdotes and a Q&A session are yours for just $15; a copy of the book will cost $24 (or, more than the aforementioned writer's daily schlubwear costs). To purchase tickets, call 314-442-3299; visit for more information.
