Vanity Fair Throws Party For "Proust Questionnaire" Book

by Chiara Atik · October 14, 2009

[All photos by CHANCE YEH for PMc]. Readers of Vanity Fair will be familiar with their back-page Proust Questionnaire, where they grill celebrities with questions developed by Marcel Proust in the 1880s, such as "What is your greatest fear?" and "How would you like to die?" Now, the magazine has come out with a book highlighting funny and thoughtful answers from celebrities like David Bowie (whose greatest fear is converting kilometers into miles), and Ted Kennedy (who lied when telling each of his sisters she was the prettiest of all). The book was launched yesterday at the Clic Bookstore and Gallery, where guests got a chance to purchase copies of the book and see prints of the signature VF Proust Portraits.

[If introspection is your thing, or if you just want to practice for the day you'll inevitably become famous and asked to fill one out for Vanity Fair, you can complete your own Proust Questionnaire HERE]
