Stars Check Out Their Penthouse Shots in Room 23


The stars came out on Tuesday night for a cocktail soirée at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills to toast the publication of Room 23, a photography book shot entirely inside the iconic hotel. “Today has been exactly a year since we started the project,” said creator Diana Jenkins, clad in Louis Vuitton. “I love all of the portraits, but I think Kid Rock’s is my favorite.” The 365-page tome tells the story of a year in the life of a penthouse suite through images shot by photographer Deborah Anderson. “I’m so flattered—almost more than anything I’ve ever done—because she had her choice of anyone,” said the book’s cover model, Cindy Crawford, of Anderson’s dust-jacket pick. “The day I shot, Lindsay Lohan and Kenny G were there,” the Chanel-clad supe recalled. “I mean, what did the hotel doorman think was going on in that room?” Each star featured in the book, from a cocktail-swigging George Clooney to a nude Jessica Stam, was given the chance to art-direct their own shoot. The result? Minnie Driver eating fries and a sundae in the loo; Tamara Mellon in the bathtub with Christian Slater; and Gina Gershon being arrested by two police officers. Guests such as Sir Elton John, Lohan, and Gavin Rossdale joined the crowd of subjects and readers bidding on select portraits. “I am overwhelmed seeing it all, since I literally just finished it three weeks ago,” Anderson said, in drapey fuchsia Lanvin. “The Peninsula just fits the personalities in this book. It’s elegant and graceful, just like Diana.”

The Preen Scene


It’s been a very good year for Preen’s Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton. First, we noticed that both their main collection and commercial Preen Line have quietly become It girl and celebrity staples. It started in April with Gwyneth Paltrow showing off her gorgeous gams in a black Power Bandage dress, a perennial Preen style, during her Iron Man publicity tour. And in short order came more fabulous credits on Anne Hathaway, Leigh Lezark, Chloë Sevigny, Karolina Kurkova, Mandy Moore, and Sienna Miller. Most recently, Fabiola Beracasa wore their Frances dress to Aid for AIDS earlier this month; Cindy Crawford was spotted in the Band dress (Spring’s finale look) last weekend at a Darfur fundraiser in London; and Bond girl Gemma Arterton repeated Gwyneth’s Iron appearance stitch for stitch in a black Power Bandage at the British Academy Children’s Awards. (You can compare and contrast in the image at left.) Second, when we called their PR to confirm all of the above, we learned that the design duo’s first ever resort collection, made exclusively for Net-a-Porter, is close to selling out. (Although for those of you who want to work a Gwyneth or Gemma, there are still a few Power Bandage frocks left in stock, in black and a special Resort-only hot pink.) A good year, indeed.

los angeles fashion week: bohemian rhapsody in beverly hills


Four-year-old Coco Arquette seems to be a star in the making. Last night, at the Beverly Hills launch of Propr, a new clothing line created by her father, David Arquette, and Ben Harper, not only did she steal the spotlight from the likes of Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford, but she was the talk of the party thanks to a series of impromptu sashays (with pals Harper and Laura Dern’s daughters) down the runway. Said runway was right by the swimming pool, the better to showcase a display of synchronized swimming—to the tune of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody that preceded the show, which was watched by Vincent Gallo, Magda Berliner, Rosanna Arquette, and Jamie Lee Curtis. As for the clothes, they were streamlined basics for men and women that fell into the space between H&M and Banana Republic.

camp freddy rocks out for john varvatos


Los Angeles sweated through a heat wave last week, but it didn’t last quite long enough for the John Varvatos store opening in Malibu on Saturday afternoon—an abrupt change in the weather meant that the party went on during heavy rainfall. That didn’t stop several hundred guests from coming out to celebrate and take in the performance by supergroup Camp Freddy (a.k.a. Dave Navarro, Donovan Leitch, and Matt Sorum). “We’re friends with John and Malibu residents, so it was a no-brainer,” said Cindy Crawford of the event, which benefited the Malibu Legacy Park Project. Other guests seated on Persian rugs in the big white tent were Ione Skye, Ben Lee, Perry Farrell, Lance Bass, and Kirsty Hume. “The clothes have enough of an edge and we have a lot of credibility with musicians,” said Varvatos. “Those guys all know that I’m a rock ‘n’ roll junkie and that I’m super-passionate about it.”

a taste of france, on the beach


We consider ourselves connoisseurs when it comes to the business of French dining. Which is why we’re recommending Anisette, a sublime new brasserie in Santa Monica, as the closest you’ll get to Paris on the West Coast. If not for the wood paneling, stained mirrors, checkerboard tile floors, vintage fixtures, and the Edith Piaf soundtrack, then for its classic menu, which includes favorites such as côte de boeuf, French onion soup served with cave-aged Gruyère, a first-rate salade niçoise, and pommes frites served in a cone. Spotted there recently: Cindy Crawford, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, and Keanu Reeves. Although there’s no word on whether or not chef Alain Giraud emerged from the kitchen midway through the meal to recount naughty French jokes for them as he did for us and our table of girlfriends. Comedie française? Mais oui, cherie.
