It was fall 2001, and Amedeo Scognamiglio was still kicking himself for losing Sarah Jessica Parker’s number a few weeks prior. The actress tracked him down after receiving a cameo pin from his 154-year-old family-owned company, M+M Scognamiglio, while in Hawaii with husband Matthew Broderick, and personally phoned him to say she was wearing it during an interview with Barbara Walters.
Nearly a month after Parker’s famous phone call, Scognamiglio and business partner Roberto Faraone Mennella were scouting office space for their fledgling fine jewelry line, Faraone Mennella — and waiting for a signal that they should sign a lease for an office on East 64th and Park on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that was way above their means.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
