The Ladies Love Dries

-------


“I’m not officially part of the fashion world, but I like clothes a lot,” Maggie Gyllenhaal said modestly at a lunch honoring Dries Van Noten, the man behind her wedding gown and many of her red-carpet dresses. “Dries really teaches me about what’s sexy and what’s beautiful and what’s unusual,” the actress told us. “Sometimes I think he knows what looks [better] on me than I do.” The soft-spoken Belgian designer was in town to receive the Couture Council of the Museum at FIT’s 2009 Artistry of Fashion award. “I’m amazed every time I come to New York. I love the energy that comes from the city’s mixture,” the designer said. Cipriani was packed with the likes of Iman, Amanda Hearst, and Fabiola Beracasa. Jamee Gregory won a torn taffeta coat in the raffle and Daphne Guinness was seen whipping a bottle of her new perfume out of an exotic bag to give a reporter a whiff.

Charlotte Ronson Fires Up The Grill

-------

“I figured a barbecue was a good way to celebrate the end of summer,” Charlotte Ronson explained at her blowout fête at the Chelsea Piers last night. Given the heat index, the event didn’t much feel like a last hurrah. What with the fried chicken, burgers, cotton candy, and ice cream on offer, the party, given in honor of the I Heart Ronson Fall collection for JCPenney, came off more like a conspicuously haute state fair. One where Champagne is served instead of pork rinds, and where guests are invited to take home, say, a body-con top with cutouts, rather than check out the latest in ag technology. Nevertheless, Fall was definitely in the air: Ronson admitted that she’s been burning the midnight oil prepping for fashion week, and Chris Benz made the scene along with buddy Eva Amurri, despite similar preoccupations. Inside, Byrdie Bell, Fabiola Beracasa, and Jennifer Creel awaited. (Socials! In the city! In August!) And of course, the full complement of Ronsons turned up—Sam and Mark worked the decks, Ann Dexter-Jones worked the crowd. And for what it’s worth, Cintra Wilson: Despite the Penney’s imprimatur, pretty much everyone in attendance was fashionably slender. Then again, what with all the fried chicken and ice cream, maybe the department store is trying to fatten us New Yorkers up.

With Apologies To Bryan Ferry

-------

When the snowboarding and surfing giant Roxy announced it was throwing a Roxy Music party, a few ears piqued at the news. “Careful now,” a friend or two warned, “Roxy Music is a cherished institution.” Bryan Ferry fans needn’t have worried. In fact, the snazzy dresser himself might like the fancy fluorescent headphones made in collaboration with audio authorities JBL that Roxy launched at last night’s fête. If nothing else, he would’ve admired the pretty ladies assembled at the Red Bull Space. Harley Viera Newton, Daisy O’Dell, and Crystal Castles all worked the turntables, and the band Golden Filter performed for 90210‘s Jessica Lowndes, Fabiola Beracasa, Genevieve Jones, and Tallulah Harlech. “I feel like I’m in an episode of Gossip Girl,” said Leigh Lezark, “which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.”

Winding Down at Tadashi Shoji

-------


The last show at Bryant Park’s Salon tent went to L.A.-based designer Tadashi Shoji, who sent out lots of ruffles and a strong palette inspired by one his favorite pastimes: gardening. “I have a nice big garden in L.A., and I thought of the black rose, then added more and more colors,” he said. “Most of the time, I’m doing really architectural forms, but this time it was more soft and organic.” Stylist Tina Chai was backstage after the show, rejoicing at the end of her long week, which included four shows and two presentations. “Tomorrow I’m going to sleep 14 hours, and then I have to catch up on all of my Oscar movies,” she said. “I’m going to have, like, eight hours of movies, and Benjamin Button—that will take up, like, half that time.” Not yet ready to switch gears, front-row guest Fabiola Beracasa still had her mind on the week’s sartorial offerings. “My favorite collection had to be Alexander Wang. I was getting this very Fly Girl vibe and a little Kelly Bundy,” she said. So, should we expect to see Fabiola rocking the early-nineties thing come fall? “I’ve been channeling Kelly Bundy for some time now,” she informed us. “It’s just not obvious, since I don’t look so much like her.”

Blasblog: Don’t Mess With Texas

-------


When Erin Wasson claimed she was installing a mechanical bull at the Lower East Side launch party for her collaboration with RVCA Wednesday night, many thought she was bluffing. “Well, I just proved them wrong, didn’t I?” quipped the Texan when, sure enough, the bovine plaything materialized. “I don’t mess around when it comes to the rodeo.” Seeing as Wasson was wearing a T-shirt that read, “If you ain’t a cowboy you ain’t shit,” we’re inclined to agree. Hosted by PM Tenore and Opening Ceremony, Wasson’s late late-night bash (her presentation at Milk Studios didn’t wrap up until 11 p.m.) saw friends Lara Stone and Noot Seear crawling into an inflatable ring in a still officially unnamed Essex Street eatery for a tumble with the bull. “I would be willing to give it a try,” said Fabiola Beracasa. “But I don’t think it would be pretty in this dress—that would be a whole other show.”
