We’d Lend To You, Chloë

-------

The red-carpet dressing game involves about as much intrigue and politicking as you’re likely to find at the U.N. And in a new story in Out, Chloë Sevigny (pictured) reveals that she isn’t the global superpower you might expect. Despite being generally worshipped by the fashion community—and a sometime designer in her own right—Sevigny told the magazine that labels often won’t lend to her, even for big premieres. For one recent carpet, she requested 20 dresses. She was sent two. As Out has it:

“Aren’t I one of the top searches on Style.com, for crying out loud?” she says with mock disgust. “How hard is it to get a fucking dress from Valentino?” When it’s noted that that quote will definitely make it to print, she clasps her hands together and lets out a raspy laugh.

For the record, we love you, Chloë. Next time a premiere rolls around, our closet is your closet.

All Aboard For Jeffrey Fashion Cares

-------

Despite 20 mph winds sweeping through Manhattan last night, designers, celebrities, and models flocked to the U.S.S. Intrepid for Jeffrey Kalinsky’s annual Fashion Cares fundraiser to benefit various AIDS and LGBT charities. Never mind the chill, models like Irina Shayk and Jessica Stam turned out (flaunting barely-there frocks) to bid on the silent and live auction items (tickets to Madonna’s MDNA tour and an all-expenses-paid trip to Barcelona among them) and, of course, to check out the hot male models strutting down the runway. “I came to support the male models,” said a sun-kissed Shayk, who was fresh from Miami’s Winter Music Conference, wearing a sheer Alexander Wang neoprene mini. An equally bronzed Anne Vyalitsyna revealed it was strange attending a fashion show not as catwalk strutter. “I went to Kanye West’s show in Paris and that was my first time sitting in the audience,” the Russian beauty said before taking her seat at the show. “This is only my second time seeing a show because I’m still trying to rock the runway myself.” Vyalitsyna’s slimming tips for the male models, who were rumored to be donning skimpy Speedos? Red wine: “It dehydrates the body and makes it more sculpted and ripped before a shoot,” she told Style.com.

But it was not all about gratuitous abs. Joe Jonas professed his excitement about seeing the clothes while honorary chair Chloë Sevigny, dressed in head-to-toe Proenza Schouler, didn’t even know there was an all-male show. “Does that mean there will be a lot of cat-calling?” the actress-cum-designer asked. “I don’t mind,” she added slyly. “I love going to basketball games more to admire the players’ physique than the game.”

At the auction close, Kalinsky proudly announced that the event, which drew over 1,200 guests, had raised over $610,000. His favorite part of the evening? “When it’s over,” the shopkeeper confessed to Style.com. “I’m going to find a piece of pizza, go home, and watch the rest of Mad Men.”

Rocks Solid: Humberto Leon And Carol Lim’s Postcard From Thailand

-------

Opening Ceremony founders and Kenzo designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim recouped from fashion week(s) as well as anyone we know—with a vacation to an experimental film festival in Thailand, co-curated by Tilda Swinton and attended by the likes of Swinton, Ryan McGinley, Chloë Sevigny, Waris Ahluwalia, and Haider Ackermann. Below, they sent back a few photos from their time in paradise.

Carol and I were ready for a tropical adventure after Paris fashion week. We had been invited to the debut of Film on the Rocks Yao Noi, an experimental film festival co-curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton along with a fun group of artists and friends like Ryan McGinley, Chloê Sevigny, and Tom Sachs. Chomwan and Nat, the organizers of the event, didn’t let us down with the immersive, fun (and educational!) program that they put together with the curators. The experience of watching a range of films at different venues in and around the Six Senses eco-resort on Yao Noi was an unbelievable journey. We never thought we’d be going to a film premiere on a floating raft in the middle of the ocean! Apart from Ole Scheeren’s jaw-dropping temporary cinema, we traveled to the jungle to see a one-time-only performance by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Arto Lindsay, went snorkeling where Leonardo DiCaprio filmed The Beach, and ate a lot of amazing Thai food!

In The Closet With Chloë Sevigny

-------

Chloë Sevigny’s Resort collection for her Opening Ceremony line has just hit stores, and to kick it off, she’s invited Team O.C. for a look into her world—and her apartment. In the second installment of their ongoing video series, Sevigny shows off a few of the gems she’s amassed over the years, including a custom Proenza Schouler dress from the CFDA Awards (ripped under the arms from vigorous dancing), a Raf Simons sweater from his Peter Saville collaboration, a vintage Versace suit, and, of course, plenty of her own new wares. Five minutes well spent is below.

A new documentary about Charles Eames, titled Eames: The Architect and the Painter, reveals the personal style of his “somewhat more elusive” wife, Ray. “A more subtle attraction is Ray’s wardrobe: the starchy white blouses, trim square-necked jumpers, waist-cropped jackets and dirndl skirts that she wore most days and throughout her lifetime,” writes The New York Times‘ Ruth La Ferla. The movie, at IFC Center in NYC, will be broadcast on PBS on December 19. [NYT]

Sephora is stepping up its fashion game thanks to Prabal Gurung. The beauty retailer has enlisted the designer to create new uniforms, set to debut in late April, for all of its beauty advisers in North America. [WWD]
