Dallasites arrived in droves this Thursday night to watch Barneys New York Creative Ambassador-at-Large Simon Doonan in action. Club kids, grandmothers, socialites, gay men and straight men alike lined up for autographed copies of his new book, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat.

In fact, as the evening drew to a close, stock was selling out!



As an author, Doonan’s titles now number five. This latest is a parody of Mireille Guiliano’s 2004 hit French Women Don’t Get Fat. As usual, it captures Doonan’s stylishly wacky sense of humor. It’s a fun read, journaling a life filled with fun twists, and teaching us all to have a little more taste!



Based in New York, Doonan wed husband Jonathan Adler in 2008. Adler, of course, is famous in his own right as an interior design expert and potter. The couple are besties with designer and native Texan Todd Oldham, who actually gave Adler his first experiences in the production of fine pottery art.

Above, a snapshot from last night’s successful event features this reporter and the handsome couple. For more information on Simon Doonan, visit Gay Men Don’t Get Fat is available for purchase via Amazon and
