The Stuff Of Legends: Marc Jacobs, Patti Smith At Pratt

-------

With the spectacular view from the 49th floor of 7 World Trade Center as backdrop, Patti Smith wowed her audience at Pratt’s annual Legends scholarship benefit gala last night. The rock icon, who was honored alongside Marc Jacobs and David Rockwell, played four songs, including “Because the Night,” complete with an audience sing-along. Jacobs, who wore his now-signature kilt for the occasion, was keen to point out before the awards ceremony that “I feel good about being honored, but I see Patti Smith as a legend. She’s such an incredible artist.” So maybe it was the fashion designer himself who advised pal Helena Christensen to keep her introduction of him brief. “Someone once said a speech should be no longer than a woman’s dress,” the supermodel quipped. “Short and not covering more than necessary.” To make her point, Christensen wore a leg-baring Marc Jacobs frock from Fall ’09.

    The most irritating thing about Marc J. is that he act like a child. His designs for Louis Vuitton or of his own brands are fabulous, but what is it that he dress himself up like a Scottish person. He isn’t from Scottish origin and even Scottish persons don’t walk around in kilts these days, SO ?? Patti Smith is always herself and a icon in the entertainment industry, beautiful songs and an attitude on stage which you can’t ignore. Ciao

    Ditto! Knock-offs are never a good thing.
    Seriously, who could possibly know better?
