Tinsley Mortimer—she of the blond, bobby-pinned tresses that enchant the Japanese—is the current ruler of the store-opening photo op. [Blah blah — we just wanted to get that 'enchant the Japanese' bit in there.] Those who doubt Tinsley's staying power perhaps haven't heard the rumor that she's soon to be immortalized in a New Yorker profile.
