LADIES OF CASTOR & POLLUX: LADY NO. 14
When you’re born with the name Lucy Punch you better have something up your sleeve when it comes to personality.
Lucky for us, Lucy does. She had me in tears with her antics the first time she came by C&P and it’s always a laugh whenÂ she stops by. Tonight she’s on the big screen with Paul Rudd and Steve Carell in Dinner for Schmucks which is at the topÂ of my weekend to-do list. I imagine she’ll be hilarious and pitch perfect if her in-store performances are any indication.
Break a leg, Lucy.

Thinly slice white nectarines and drench them in Maraschino Liqueur – put in the fridge for a couple of hoursÂ and serve with vanilla ice cream. Does that count? I don’t really cook.
Last great book you read?
School of Fear by Gitty Daneshvari. I think this hilarious and quirky kid’s book is incredible – and that’s notÂ just because it’s written by my best friend (and she named a character after me!).
Summer drink of choice?
St. Germain and Champagne.
Your animals – names and breeds?
I have several part-time pets and unfortunately for my sweaters, lots of full-time moths.

Salty or sweet?
Who inspires you and why?
Pool or ocean?

I sold mugs and keychains at a souvenir shop next to Notre Dame Cathedral.
I don’t have one.

A vintage faux leopard coat that I’ve had since I was 18. So, like a couple years ago.

Paris! Malcolm McLaren.
More Than This. Roxy Music.
Your ideal day?
Wake up an inch taller, fall in love, find a million dollars, take a nap, find another million dollars, jump onÂ a supersonice 22 minute plane to Bali where all my friends and family are waiting for me in the luxuriousÂ Ubud villa I just mysteriously inherited. And then, obviously, a huge party amongst the rice paddies to follow.
Favorite gift you’ve ever received?
Chanel No. 5, just not on me.
