NEW YORK -- Don't hate fashion designer Matt Nye because he's beautiful, or because he's the companion of media maverick Jann Wenner, or because he's traveled through Europe in five-star style with former boss Ralph Lauren. "Yes, good looks, youth, a level of notoriety, can open doors. For whatever reason people may be curious about me," says Nye, 34, while lounging in his Upper West Side studio.

It was scheduled to begin hitting newsstands Friday. "We wanted to do something that wasn't done before that would instantly stand out," said Will Dana, Rolling Stone's managing editor.

There's always a tiny spark of excitement whenever the phone rings. Maybe it's an old friend; maybe it's a business opportunity; maybe it's a bomb threat. Or maybe it's Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. One just never knows. This happened a few weeks ago: The phone rang, and the voice on the other end said, "Hello, this is Ian Anderson."
