Getting Their Due


First comes The Hangover, then comes parenthood? That’s a familiar enough trajectory, we guess—and it’s the one that director Todd Phillips has taken, following his smash-hit lost-in-Vegas comedy with a new Zach Galifianakis flick, Due Date. Robert Downey, Jr., stars with Galifianakis as a man desperate to make it across the country in time for the birth of his kid.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Mayer, and Narciso Rodriguez all turned out for the Cinema Society and DKNY Jeans’ screening last night, with Alexandra and Theodora Richards and Debbie Harry joining in for the after-party at Lavo afterwards. Even a few real-life parents took the evening off to celebrate. “We are just relaxing before we relieve our babysitters,” said designer Rachel Roy, who arrived with Iman and Drena De Niro, after winning Brand Launch of the Year at the ACE Awards earlier in the evening. “And we are here for Robert—hello, in Tropic Thunder he had swagger like none other.”

Courtney Love (left, with Russell Simmons) was also eager to catch up with Downey—in particular, to ask him about his workout routine. “I don’t see Downey anywhere. He is doing a martial art—Wang Chang or something—and I wanted to ask him about it,” she said. “I haven’t been sleeping well and I am wondering if I might need more exercise.”

Alexandra Richards Goes Bare, Tim Hamilton Goes Private, Miu Miu Goes Tuscan, And More…


Alexandra Richards (pictured) strips down for the latest French Playboy. That’s usually the sort of thing that dads object to, but in her case, we imagine dad’s done way worse. [NY Post via Daily Front Row]

Tim Hamilton canceled his eponymous menswear show in Paris, opting to show the new collection by private appointment instead. “It’s about the clothing at the end of the day, not the spectacle,” the designer said. [WWD]

Miu Miu opens its newest shop in Forte dei Marmi, Italy, the Tuscan town where the rich and famous (like Giorgio Armani and Andrea Bocelli) keep villas. Funny, we always thought of Bocelli as more Prada than Miu Miu, but it is hard to resist those kitty collars. [Racked]

If I Had A Hammer…


It seemed a simple enough concept: To rebuild following its devastating earthquake, Haiti needed cash and tools. So that’s exactly what Tools For Thought founders Diana Campbell and Julie Ragolia set out to find. Campbell, a museum administrator, and Ragolia, a fashion stylist with an art background, canvassed their friends and colleagues to gather tools. Of course, when your friends and colleagues are Nate Lowman, Dan Colen, Alex Katz, and Ed Ruscha, they’re swinging a different sort of hammer than the one that repairs the hospital. No matter. The hammer—the one is question Ruscha’s, by the way, a mallet for pounding canvas stretchers—is going on the auction block, along with the tools and work of more than 100 other artists, to raise money for Partners in Health’s Haiti efforts. Kon Trubkovich, Alex Katz (whose paintbrush is above), Subversive’s Justin Giunta, Marilyn Minter, Kiki Smith, and Patti Smith have all donated work to Monday night’s auction, where Smith (Patti, not Kiki) will perform and Alexandra Richards will spin. Attendees are encouraged to bring a mighty tool of their own—the checkbook.

Tools for Thought’s Rebuild Haiti cocktail reception and silent auction take place Monday, March 15, at Sotheby’s. For more information, visit, or to purchase tickets, click here.

Teen Jagger, Lily’s Lucky Charms, And More…


Meet Georgia May: The youngest of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall’s progeny is the new face of Hudson Jeans, the only company that seems to have any money these days. And, as if one insanely famous name weren’t enough, the ads were shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Camilla Nickerson. See what we mean about the money? [WWD]

If Sean Avery is to be believed, Alexandra Richards is an impressive multitasker. The hockey star espied the model-slash-DJ getting a pedicure while spinning at Surf Lodge in Montauk. [Page Six]

Lily Allen’s new jewelry lines features pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers. OK, not exactly, but it does have poodles. [Vogue U.K.]

Blasblog: Trenchcoat Teases On The L.E.S.


Jen Brill and Chrissie Miller were a little disappointed when they showed up at the Thompson LES hotel on Thursday night to celebrate the debut of Shoshanna Gruss and Charlotte Ronson’s swimwear collaboration, Made With Love. “Shoshanna promised me that she would be wearing one of the bikinis with high heels and a trench coat. Major letdown,” Brill sighed. Then Miller added, “And now she’s dressed up in a pink prom dress. What a tease.” Perhaps they were the only friends who needed such a guarantee to pound down to the L.E.S., because it seemed as though Gruss and Ronson’s other fans—Lindsay Price, Alexandra Richards, Lissy Trullie, and Ronson matriarch Ann Dexter-Jones, included—were more than happy to see the fully clothed designers. True to the name, the collaboration was an amiable effort. “Not a single fight between the two of us,” bragged Gruss of the fabric research, designing, and fit process. “It was like I was another sibling—which wouldn’t be hard for Charlotte, I guess. Ya know, since she’s one of ten.” Seriously! By the end of the night Miller’s spirits had lifted. “Are you kidding me? Is that Jill Zarin?” she enthused (without a shred of irony) when she spotted the Real Housewives of New York City star. “Someone take my picture with her.”
