Stars and the City (SATC) is not only a nod to one of my favorite TV series, Sex and the City, but chalk-full of tricks of the trade I’ve learned from interacting with A-Listers. Mind you, I’m not anything fancy. I’m introverted, hate the idea of networking, and my connections are what you’d expect out of a twenty-one year old college girl… basically nonexistent. What I’ve learned by living in the magical land of New York City, though, is that at some point or another you will cross paths with someone who has graced the cover of People Magazine, hosted Saturday Night Live, or scored an invite to Anna Wintour’s annual MET Gala. When you live on an island, it’s inevitable. This blog will teach you how to prepare for that special moment (or making that moment happen) with comical anecdotes of celebrity encounters, lists of frequent hangout spots of Manhattan’s “elite,” and communication tips that might even result in you getting Ansel Elgort’s number.
