Bless Us, Lagerfeld, For We Have Sinned! Karl In Paradise, And More Of The Day’s Top Stories

-------

Mein Gott! Karl Lagerfeld has a starring role in singer Jean-Roch’s new music video—as a kind of angel. A white-clad Lagerfeld floating on a cloud appears at the beginning of the clip. “You were never told Saint-Tropez is paradise?” Lagerfeld quips. [Fashionologie]

Kate Moss is exercising her charitable muscles. Last night, the fashion icon made an appearance at Claridge’s Hotel, where she helped auction off a painting by her close friend Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones. The auction took place as part of a fundraiser in honor of Marie Curie Cancer Care, and the painting—a portrait of Rod Stewart—sold for £12,000. [Telegraph]

Agyness Deyn’s not ending her acting career on the stripper pole. The model-slash-actress, who plays a stripper in the upcoming remake of the 1996 cult-classic Pusher (due out this summer), has just been chosen to star in the screen adaption of the legendary Scottish novel Sunset Song. This time around, she’ll play Chris Guthrie, “the resilient heroine.” [Vogue U.K.]

Amanda Lepore wants her Louboutins, and she wants them now. The famous transgender artist and nightlife personality stopped by the shoemaker’s New York sample sale yesterday and upset more than a few people when she decided to walk in ahead of the reportedly 300 women and men already waiting in line. Understandably, only ten at a time were being let in and shoppers were limited to a max of eight shoes. [Page Six]

Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson, and Maison Martin Margiela are getting a new neighbor. This November, Temperley London is opening its first flagship store—a six-floor Georgian space on Bruton Street, in London’s Mayfair. The store will house all three of the designer’s collections, including Temperley London, Alice by Temperley, and Temperley Bridal. [Temperley London]

 

 

David LaChapelle Celebrates His Own Personal Jesus

-------

David LaChapelle has his own way of doing an art opening. Last night at Paul Kasmin Gallery, for the vernissage of his American Jesus show, he had cameos from Julian Schnabel and Lenny Kravitz (pictured above, with LaChapelle) and a crowd of people photographing him as he danced—in a white caftan, no less. As it happened, there was a Jersey Shore party going on at the same time next door at Marquee—”probably a metaphor for my life,” LaChapelle shrugged.

That life is a busy one at the moment, with Chelsea the latest stop on the attention-getting show’s world tour. The abridged American Jesus exhibition at Paul Kasmin puts extra focus on three photos depicting the late Michael Jackson (well, a lookalike) as Christ and features a striking image of Naomi Campbell as Cleopatra. A broadly expanded version of the show opens at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art later this month. “It’s going to go on until people don’t want to see it any more, I guess,” LaChapelle said at the Standard’s High Line Room, where he was joined by the likes of Cynthia Rowley and Rory Tahari for the post-opening dinner. Speaking of going on, so did the party—the LaChapelle crew adjourned upstairs to the Boom Boom Room for some postprandial dancing, where they mixed with the likes of Yigal Azrouël and J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons. It was the last Boom, so to speak—the final late night of BBR revelry before the space is reborn as a private club after the summer. LaChapelle’s own take on resurrection? “I believe that there’s more to me than what’s contained between my hat and my shoes,” he said.
