In the New York Times, there’s an excruciatingly detailed article about Amanda Brooks, a woman who is OK-looking but not stunningly gorgeous, has no discernible job skills but has cool jobs where she doesn’t seem to do any real work (“a lot of her job seemed to involve attending fashion shows, where she was a front-row regular, and going to openings and galas”), and lives in an apartment in Manhattan with a really huge walk-in closet full of expensive clothes and shoes. And she’s moving to a farm in England. Good riddance!
Whomever she is, she’s not important enough to merit an article at Wikipedia, not even a stub article, so Wikipedia considers he to be a lot less important than Lawrence Auster who has a very detailed Wikipedia article.
She has a really beautiful golden retriever. I'm sure the dog had good breeding.
I discovered her 2001 NY Times wedding announcement:
IF a social anthropologist had to write about one couple on the face of the planet who simultaneously combined the most traditional and also the most fashionably up-to-the-minute sensibilities, there might not be a better study sample than Amanda Harwood Cutter and Christopher Brooks.
Amanda is also described as a “patrician blond beauty” who “looks as if she's ready to pull out an ostrich-feather fan and pose for the ghost of John Singer Sargent.”
Did Amanda write this herself? Is Alex Kuczynski, the author of the wedding announcement, just that eager to suck up to this WASP power couple? It should be noted that Alex, who is female, is Peruvian, and an Ivy League graduate (Barnard), and her father, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, recently ran for president of Peru and is also a Princeton grad. There are a lot of other famous people in her family. It's always worth pointing out the majority of NY Times writers are from extreme elite backgrounds.
It should be noted that (1) the Brooks are WASPs and not Jews (WASPs secretly run the country and Jews are their bitches); and (2) Christopher Brooks, the artist, is 16 years older than Amanda.
Bee-Shyuan Chang, who wrote the article about Amanda in today’s NY Times, went to a Top-14 law school (GULC) and then worked at BIGLAW (Schulte Roth & Zabel) for a one year before becoming a freelance writer who contributes to the NY Times on fashion topics. She is probably 31 years old based on her graduation from college (state school, not Ivy) in 2003.
In a 2009 article at WMagagzine, she talks about her job as a “muse”:
People propose me to kind of work as muse for other people and it just hasn't ever really worked since [Tuleh] and I haven't ever really wanted to do it because it's so much about the relationship between two people. You can't tell someone you don't like something unless you really love them. It is very hard to criticize someone that you don't love. To inspire them they have to trust you, so it really is really trusting each other and loving each other as people—and you can't force that.
ART HISTORY AT BROWN
Amanda double-majored in Art History and Visual Arts at Brown. She told Annabel Tollman: “When I was an art history major I absolutely refused to study any art pre-20th century. I’m not interested in anything before the ’60s. I don’t even watch black and white movies.”
