Stylists and a Guest Editor
Tuesday afternoon the crowd had gathered for the Luca Luca show. To be honest, the clothes in the show are never all that exciting, but the designer Luca Orlandi likes to invite enough celebrities to give the photographers a reason to shove each other around. He always has a bunch of name cards on his seats promising that people like Cam'ron, Pharrell and Phylicia Rashad are going to show up. Half the time they don't -- this time they didn't -- and we've started to suspect that the name cards on the seats are just a ploy.
Damon Dash and his wife Rachel Roy -- not to be confused with celebrity cook Rachel Ray -- turned up. As a colleague was fond of saying: They'd go to the opening of an envelope. Of course, we wouldn't say that because that wouldn't be nice.
Monday night we went to the Marc Jacobs show. It was supposed to start at 8 p.m., but Marc had some problem getting his shoes delivered from Europe so he rescheduled the show for 9 p.m. But because Marc is disorganized and, we think, unprofessional and just a teensy bit rude, he didn't end up starting the show until almost 10 p.m. (Can someone just take him out back and smack some sense of responsibility into him?)
We'll talk about the clothes in an upcoming story, but can we just say we've never encountered a designer who couldn't be on time to save his life? Marc always keeps his audience, which includes his financial backers, waiting. Can you imagine keeping your boss waiting for an hour?
Winona Ryder was at the show. When she came in, someone shouted, "Winona's here! Hold onto your handbags!" Serena Williams came in wearing this tiny, short silvery little halter dress that she had no business even thinking about, let alone wearing in public.
The next day we ran into a stylist friend and pleaded with him to counsel Serena on her wardrobe choices. Alledgedly her current stylist has trouble finding clothes for her because Serena's a big girl. But we figure if she stopped trying to get clothes for free and bought them herself she could get some that fit. Yeah, we know that's harsh. We say that out of tough love.
Folks around the shows have gotten a look at the new Vanity Fair Hollywood issue for which Tom Ford served as guest editor. Tom is on the cover dressed in his usual dark suit and white shirt, and is posed alongside a naked Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson. Tom is leaning in close to Keira and appears to be panting in her ear. We also noticed that on the cover, a little air-brushing gave Tom more hair than he has had in 10 years.
A lot of women are appalled because under Ford's leadership, every woman over the age of 21 in the portfolio is either naked, in her underwear, dressed like a child, or posed sprawled atop a car or upside-down in a panel van. Tom, after we bought all those Gucci handbags and purses and made you a gazillionaire, show the ladies a little love and respect.
