Lipps Service: Nashville Bound

In our Friday feature, Lipps Service, One Model Management owner Scott Lipps shares photos from his fabulous life with us once a week, right here. This week, it was Nashville or bust! Scott hopped a short flight to Tennessee to get his best Dwight Yoakam on this past weekend—an eye-opening experience. (Some facts about Nashville as Scott experienced it: its residents love a line and will queue up for just about anything; and you can live there for pennies on the dollar.) The first night, he had dinner with mega-producer/songwriter Marti Frederiksen and American Idol alum Kara DioGuardi at the Patterson, which is very reminiscent of Soho House. The next morning, Scott donned his (non-cowboy) boots and headed to the Loveless Café with tour guide Jordan, and waited two hours for one of the biggest, best breakfasts he’s ever had—he ordered nearly the whole menu and the total came to $15. The tour proceeded to the Parthenon, the store run by the History Channel’s American Pickers team, and the indie district, featuring stores like imogene + willie (their version of Double RL), and of course, the world-famous Broadway, with what felt like at least a hundred honky-tonk bars. (Note: Scott did, in fact, come home and download some Keith Urban.) After some more sightseeing and a hangout with new Roc Nation artist Mayaeni, it was time to head back to New York and make the abrupt switch from cowboys to fashion. Scott hit the Glamour Awards with Anna Wintour, Pharrell, Carola Remer, Chelsea Handler, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Von Furstenberg, Julianna Margulies, Lena Dunham, and a host of others. Finally, on Wednesday, a fun dinner at new spot Kristalbelli with Byrdie Bell, Cory Kennedy, and Chloe Norgaard—it’s good to be home!
