Before They Were Sorta Famous: Stacey Bendet

Yesterday, we learned that Alice + Olivia designer Stacey "Staceypants" Bendet lives a fabulous life of punch at Kobe Club with Paula Froelich and club-hopping with Devon Aoki. She also goes to yoga drunk and misspells Patr n. But before she was the pants designer to Barneys habitu s, Ms. Bendet was simply Stacey Wiener of the lovely Westchester town of Chappaqua, now home to Mr. and Mrs. Clinton, where she graduated from Horace Greeley High School. Then she was Stacey Wiener of the U. Penn gymnastics team, which might explain her current fascination with alcoholic yoga. A reader kindly sent along a scan of Ms. Wiener (her middle name is apparently Bendet—hey, we'd drop the Wiener too!) from the Class of 1999 Penn freshman facebook, which you may enjoy after the jump. See how far she's come!
