Prada Goes to Hollywood

-------



This week has been filled with buzz about the upcoming Golden Globes and yesterday’s Oscar-nom announcement, but Prada’s Spring ’13 menswear campaign has enough silver-screen star power to hold its own against any awards ceremony. For her moody spring ads, Mrs. Prada tapped Dane DeHaan, Harvey Keitel, Anna Karenina‘s Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Benicio Del Toro to wear her smart, sporty looks. Prada sent us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of their David Sims-lensed campaign. Get your fashion-meets-film fix with their black-and-white video (above), which debuts exclusively on Style.com.

Mrs. Prada went to Hollywood for her Fall ’12 menswear campaign—Willem Dafoe, Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, and Garrett Hedlund, all of whom also walked in her Fall ’12 show—and she’s going back for Spring. The David Sims-shot campaign of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, late of Anna Karenina, sporting cherubic curls and Prada joggers (above), as well as Harvey Keitel, Benicio del Toro, and Dane DeHaan. Guess you can expect Prada credits on the red carpet for Kick-Ass 2 (hadn’t seen that sentence coming down the pike today).

Blasblog: Beatrice, Good And Empty. Huh?

-------


If you heard about the crush at Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld’s after-party at Indochine, be assured it was no exaggeration. Potted plants were tipped over, drinks were spilled, and strangers became extremely intimate with each other while trying to squeeze from one empty pocket of the room to the next. That’s why Benicio Del Toro started a migration to the Beatrice Inn soon after midnight. Who would believe that place could ever be comfortably and impressively empty? According to the door staff, that was the intent. Selma Blair and Joy Bryant were among the small herd who trekked to the West Village hot spot for some peaceful partying. Perhaps scared of overcrowding again, Del Toro found himself in a sanctioned-off nook near the front of the joint, with a strict guest list policy (just when you thought getting in the place was hard enough). But he had a system set up for people asking to bring in friends. “Are they pretty?” he’d question. Hey, if it’s going to get crowded, there might as well be some eye candy.

a new tar in town

-------

After a doozy of a Thursday night—six parties in five hours left me beyond taxi-poor—the art world was ready to kick the tar out of the Frieze Art Fair (that’s a pun you’ll understand in a sec) on Friday. That evening, Neville Wakefield and Evanly Schindler’s new art rag, Tar, was fêted at an underground speakeasy on Swallow Street. Rivington Arms’ Melissa Bent and Mirabelle Marden took a booth next to one shared by Venetia Scott and New York art director Patrick Li; Emma Watson and the Kills singer Alison Mosshart held court near the dance floor with artist Adam McEwen and art partrons of the future Eugenie Niarchos, Olympia Scarry, and Alexia Niedzielski. And making the rounds with Wakefield were Tar‘s publisher, Maurizio Marchiori, and arts associate Marco Perego. The consensus on the new glossy was good: The cover, a Julian Schnabel shot of a smoking-hot Benicio del Toro, received rave reviews, as did the long list of contributors, which includes the likes of Ryan McGinley, Juergen Teller, David Sheery, Richard Prince, Terry Richardson, and Nate Lowman. Just don’t call it a magazine. “It’s more of a seasonal book dedicated to what has been inspiring to these artists for the past six months,” said Marchiori.
