Celine’s Sporting Goods, Katie’s Mane, And More…


Ivana Omazic’s last splash for Celine (which Phoebe Philo is resuming control of soon) could be the chicest thing on two wheels—Bicyclette, a capsule collection of “jersey dresses [and] cotton poplin skirts” for cycling, due this spring. Because who rides a bike in shorts? [WWD]

According to overworked British photo sleuths, key elements of Madonna’s Purim costume came directly from daughter Lourdes’ closet. Jesus Luz’s Joker costume, on the other hand—all him. [The Daily Mail]

If you’re tired of only having Michelle and Carla’s name to bandy about when fashionable first ladies come up, forget not Cristina Elizabeth Fernández de Kirchner (an actual president, that one) or Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein (who happens to be one of two wives, but hey, who’s counting?). These names, and more, are sure to liven up any cocktail party debate. [The Daily Beast]

For her Tokyo debut at the Valkyrie premiere, Katie Holmes fooled no one with her overnight hair growth. Will the extensions stay, or is this some kind of Asia-only phenom? Style Filers, do you want the crop back? [The Daily Mail]

Carla’s Scandale, Prada’s Transformer, And More…


The latest French uproar is over Carla and Sarko living la vida loca in Mexico while their people get poorer by the minute (the euro’s not what it used to be, sad to say). But what about Carla’s total fashion week diss? Where was she at Dior, Chanel, Givenchy? We’re not even French and we feel slighted. [The Daily Mail]

Beth Ditto: Prude. [NYT]

Step aside, Zaha Hadid. Chanel’s world-traveling Mobile Art Pavilion (which had to land permanently mid-trip) has met its match in Prada‘s Rem Koolhaas-designed Transformer, a mutable steel tetrahedron galleryspace. To see it do its thing, you’ll have to jet over to Seoul, where it’s housed in the grounds of an imperial palace. [WWD]

Kate at Topshop’s NYC opening? Yes, Sir Philip, that’s just who we would invite for a low-key affair. [The Cut]

In a “conducted” conversation with Victoria Beckham in the latest issue of Bergdorf Goodman magazine (speaking of which, time to renew that subscription!), Marc Jacobs bemoans his likeness to a Ken doll after a rash of airbrushing. He’s referring to a nude photo, and he’s not talking about musculature. He means down there.

Blasblog From Paris: The Sandwich Stays Fresh (And Charitable)


What better way to start and end the Paris couture than a big Club Sandwich. I am of course referring to the now legendary Paris fashion party that Emmanuel d’Orazio and Marc Zaffuto started in 2005. (I haven’t had a good club sandwich in France for years. The bacon just ain’t crunchy enough.) Last Sunday night le tout Paris was at Club Neo for the fête, including the original DJs Burberry PR director Alex Malgouyres and accessories designer Erik Halley; the fashion desk of every newspaper; a handful of sweaty trannies; and even a sequined Lily Allen with Kim Jones. (That’s Casey Spooner pictured here with other revelers.) According to Zaffuto, it was just another night in the office. (Ask him about the time last season when Demi Moore, with Ashton and daughters in tow, helped distract some moody policemen called to break up the party, then at Maxim’s.) Expect more overdressed glamour at Club Sandwich’s official after-party for the Carla Bruni-hosted Sidaction Ball tonight here in Paris. “The night of the Sidaction is very important to us,” d’Orazio explains. “We’re very happy they asked us to host this party for them. And all of the night’s proceeds will go to the Sidaction.” So expect the typical looks—which d’Orazio decrees should be “colorful, sexy, and energetic,” adding that boys can show up in tuxedos or high heels or “horny shorts,” which I assume are the French equivalent to Daisy Dukes—and the typical drama. Oh, that reminds me of another story: when Dita von Teese showed up in man drag. But you’ll have to ask Zaffuto for more on that one.
