Instead, she wanted a southwestern-style blanket coat with silver buttons from Ralph Lauren. She didn’t just want to acquire the coat—she wanted to go buy it herself at the Ralph Lauren Mansion on Madison Avenue. As another graduation gift, one of Moore’s friends drew a picture of her wearing that jacket on the cover of the erstwhile YM magazine, where she interned one summer in high school.
