Jason Wu Celebrates With His Other First Lady, Stephanie Seymour

-------

Publicists tend to use the phrase “intimate dinner” loosely on invitations, and you can usually take “intimate” to mean they invited just under five hundred people and twice as many photographers. But the cozy supper that Cindi Leive hosted for Jason Wu last night at The Beatrice Inn had a genuine friends-and-family feeling. That’s provided your friends and family include, as Wu’s do, Chanel Iman, Bryanboy, and Stephanie Seymour, the star of the designer’s newly minted ad campaign. Bryanboy, a fashion-show fixture these last few seasons, mentioned that he’ll be missing Milan and Paris this time around, as he’ll be busy filming new episodes of America’s Next Top Model in L.A. We imagine @stefanogabbana is breaking out the sad-face emoticon as we speak. Leive decided to throw the bash on the spur of the moment to celebrate Wu’s coup in dressing Michelle Obama for the inauguration. “I know you don’t like to bask,” the Glamour editor said, addressing the guest of honor in a brief speech before dinner. “Oh no,” Wu interjected, “I like to bask.”

Splash (And Splurge) for Sandy Relief

-------

Nothing like a little charity to show you where you stand on fashion’s food chain. As part of the CFDA and Vogue‘s new auction for Hurricane Sandy relief, a date with Ryan Lochte (well, a swimming lesson and lunch, but who’s to say where that’ll lead), runs an estimated $20K; a day with Bryanboy is a comparative bargain at $1,000.

Linda Evangelista, Warthog Appreciator, And More Breaking Intel From Last Night’s Disney Meets Barneys Bash

-------


To say Barneys was animated last night would be an understatement. The retailer’s holiday pop-up—in the mold of last year’s Gaga’s Workshop—is an epic collaboration with Disney, which extends from novelty gifts to a DVF-designed Mickey statuette to character confections available at Fred’s, the store’s ninth-floor restaurant. An entire block of Madison Avenue was reserved for the screening of its Electric Holiday promo film, where animated versions of fashion types faced off with Disney favorites: Daphne Guinness admiring Cruella de Vil’s runway walk, Carine Roitfeld and Cathy Horyn sitting front-row for a cartoon fashion show where Minnie Mouse wore Lanvin ruffles and her usually topless beau, Mickey, tried on a Balenciaga sweatshirt. Hostess Sarah Jessica Parker, in L’Wren Scott and Scott and Stephen Jones-designed mouse ears, kicked off the event, which, she noted, was the unusual one she could attend with both her fashion pals and her daughters, Tabitha and Marion. “I’m delighted my children could come to something I’m working on,” she said, “which is a rare opportunity!”

As partiers circulated, we had to wonder—as SJP’s old alter ego might say—who’s your favorite Disney character?

Bryanboy: “Mickey Mouse. I love his voice—he reminds me of David Beckham. So iconic!”

Lazaro Hernandez, Proenza Schouler: “We did Tiana from The Princess and the Frog [for] the movie they’re showing tonight. She’s the newest one—makes sense, I guess. She’s really, really cute. But secretly, Minnie Mouse.”

Jack McCollough, Proenza Schouler: “I like Mickey. Who wouldn’t? He’s the best.”

Linda Evangelista: “I love The Lion King; Pumbaa is my favorite. So charming.”

Mark Lee, CEO, Barneys New York: “Daisy Duck.”

Sarah Jessica Parker: “As Mr. Iger says, I will not pick a favorite. Too many wonderful memories associated with all of them.”

Simon Doonan: “I would have to say Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. She’s so beautiful—she has a Thierry Mugler, kind of Claude Montana look. High glamour. That eighties ‘evil glamour’ look!”

Barbara Walters: “Minnie, because she is an inspiration to all of us. She’s unmarried—she’s been living with Mickey in sin all these years and they never broke up. And her wardrobe is always in style. What an inspiration to every woman!”

Rachael Taylor: “Cruella de Vil. She always looked so amazingly badass. I love that she was a villain in a fabulous coat, heels, and too much makeup. In my world, more is more.”

Bob Iger, CEO, The Walt Disney Company: “I have a lot of favorites, but I’m never public about them because I fear offending those who don’t agree. But tonight there was a character here I’m fond of: Tinker Bell. Impish, cute, fun—and she flies!”

Ann Dexter-Jones: “Is Betty Boop Disney? I guess not. I actually like Dopey. He’s so slow, and we live in New York, where nobody ever slows down for a minute.”

Liya Kebede: “I love the Little Mermaid. I like how she looks out for her friends like Sebastian.”

Her son, Shul, added, “I like all of them—except the princesses.”

Lara Stone’s Star Trek, And More Of Today’s Top Stories

Lara Stone, a space cadet? In electro-pop duo Hot Chips’ latest music video, the gap-toothed model and face of CK One (pictured) took her strangest role to date, dressed in a pointy-shouldered jacket and low-cut bustier as the captain of a spaceship, alongside legendary actor Terence Stamp. Stone landed the gig on behalf of British comedian Peter Serafinowicz, the video’s director and friend of Stone’s husband, David Walliams. [Telegraph]

Stella McCartney is going for the gold. Less than a year after opening her Soho store, the designer is opening her first-ever standalone Adidas by Stella McCartney outpost. The shop will be located in South Kensington’s Brompton Cross, which houses stores for McCartney’s mainline and childrenswear. The designer is the creative director of the Adidas Team GB Olympic uniforms. [Vogue U.K.]

We’ve all seen Angelina Jolie’s engagement ring, but what jewels does she have to pair with it? Just ask Robert Procop. The jeweler is setting up a showcase in the South of France this summer, where his Style of Jolie collection (designed in collaboration with the actress), along with pieces from his own Exceptional Jewels collection, will be on display. [WWD]

If Bryanboy’s front-row seat wasn’t close enough to the runway, he just got a little closer. The blogger is reportedly joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model alongside judges Kelly Cutrone and model Rob Evans. This cast change is just one of several made in the past few months, since Tyra Banks gave mainstays J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and Nigel Barker the boot. [Styleite]

The director of the year-old Brigitte Bardot fashion label, Sarah Ohana, has enlisted the help of industry insiders, including André Saraiva, Paris retailer Maria Luisa Moumaillou, and French fashion editor Viviane Blassel to create one-off items for charity. Some of the wares up for sale are a white silk gown, a gingham dress, and a black leotard, all playing off of pieces that Bardot wore in her films. A portion of the profits will be donated to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the protection of animals. [WWD]

Kiddie Cute With Wes Anderson And Lanvin, One Small Step For Bryanboy, One Giant Leap For Bloggers, And More…

-------


There’s a new Wes Anderson movie in the offing. Focus Features is backing Moonrise Kingdom, the latest from the Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore director. The film, which will be shot this summer in Rhode Island, stars a pair of young unknown actors as a teenage couple that runs away to elope. In the supporting cast, some known actors: Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and (fashion folk, hold your breath) Tilda Swinton. [Huffington Post via Gilt Manual]

Speaking of kids and cute (of the ultra-expensive variety): Lanvin is launching children’s clothing. It’s a return to form for the house: Founder Jeanne Lanvin spent part of her early career making pieces for mothers and daughters (a sketch of some of her children’s designs from 1929 is above). [WWD]

Readers of The New York Times may have noticed something a little odd about a recent article on the Met gala—Oscar de la Renta was identified in a photo as Giorgio Armani. One of those confused readers? Oscar de la Renta. “What kind of trip was your photographer on?” Mr. de la Renta reportedly said when he called the Times. “It’s just fabulous for my ego. Whoever did it must have been on some kind of LSD I don’t know about.” (Side note: Does this suggest there’s a kind of LSD OdlR does know about?) [On the Runway]

And the next chapter in blogger world domination begins: Bryanboy announces he’s signed with power agency CAA. [Racked]
