Scott Lipps is a real jack of all trades: he’s a little bit fashion and a little bit rock & roll. By day, he’s the founder and president of top modeling agency One Management, and by night he’s the hard-hitting drummer for the Courtney Love-fronted band, Hole. The decade old agency represents some of the biggest names in fashion: Iman, Claudia Schiffer, Bar Refaeli, Helena Christensen and Eva Herzigová. You may have seen Mr. Lipps running around N.Y.C. in his signature Golden Goose kicks, vintage tee, leather jacket and Ricoh camera in hand. He’s always on the move shooting pictures for his blog POPLIPPS, which offers an intimate look at his daily life. In the 90’s, Lipps was the band Black Cherry and was all about tattoos, motorcycles and all black everything. Even after moving on from the band (and cutting his mane), music continues to be a major part of Lipps’ life. You can take the boy out of metal, but you can’t take the metal out of the boy! Lipps welcomed us into his home, turned up the tunes with an addictive playlist, and started digging up treasured vintage tees. His home is filled with mementos from the Iggy Pop days, photographs by legendary photog, Mick Rock and even a drum set. When he’s not stuck at his Mac sending emails for One Management, you can find him banging away on his beloved drum set. Music to our ears!
President, One Management. New York
