Emerson O'Sullivan III aka FancyLad

Emerson O'Sullivan III was born and he hasn't looked back since. He splits his time between New York and Los Angeles depending on where his work takes him (O'Sullivan's‚ day job is that of a personal stylist to several fashionably-challenged B-list celebrities). When he's not writing for outsideleft, he fronts a small, French-inspired jazz combo on vocals, some say his voice is identical to a young Chevalier. In his spare time, O'Sullivan spends hours in bookshops and libraries looking for that one special gal, "The moment I come across a young lady with long brown hair wearing a smart A-frame dress to the knee, reading something from the works of Noel Coward" Fontaine recently said. "Well, then I'll know it's time to think about possibly settling down."
