This morning we called your attention to a Sunday Styles piece on the increasing popularity of fitness clubs — who knew? — and the interesting selective anonymity granted within the article. Writer Guy Trebay purported to spend 24 hours at the Crunch on Lafayette Street, and he proudly mentioned among its clientele Calvin Klein, Matt Damon, Sandra Oh, and James Iha. Four others were left anonymous.
Which is not to say you folks had a tough time figuring them out.
1) The editor of a major city magazine is, nearly everyone thinks, New York's Adam Moss. (One person guessed Bonnie Fuller, but that makes absolutely no sense, as she does not run a major city magazine and, as we learned from The Wall Street Journal last week, she works out at some fancy place on West 57th Street.)
2) The architect behind more than 200 Gucci stores, by universal agreement, is Bill Sofield.
3) Most think the sweat-drenched Pulitzer-winning novelist is Michael Cunningham. Unless it's a woman, in which case it could maybe possibly sort of be Jane Smiley.
4) There were few guesses as to the half-naked TV hunk, but they were all for Chris Noth. (The issue seemed to be qualms with the descriptor "hunk.") Speaking of hunks, we'll tell you this: Anderson definitely works out at the Equinox in the Time Warner Center.
