Who Is This Guy Next To Zac Posen?

by Chiara Atik · April 23, 2010

In 2002, when Zac Posen was still attending the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, he befriended a nineteen year old American who was also studying at the college. Any guesses as two who this dapper young gentlemen is? You may be surprised...-

Malik So Chic looks a LOT different in his pre-wearing-turbans-made-out-of-tulle days.He and Zac met in 2002 and, in Malik's words, "really "hit it off" if you know what i mean.................." (yes. We do.)

Sad that only eight years later, the utterly transformed Mr. So Chic was kicked out of the VIP section of Zac Posen's Target 24 Hour Party.  Malik says that now he gets a chilly reception from Zac whenever they run into each other at events. (Could chilly reception=lack of recognition?) No doubt the publication of this picture and commentary will endear Malik to the designer. Ah well, at least they'll always have London.

And don't feel too sorry for Malik...he may not be able to get in to the VIP section at Zac Posen, but he certainly made it through the velvet ropes to get into one Devorah Rose's birthday party last night at The Gates. How's that for clout?
