Noticed: Jim Carrey

-------


The fashion-and-style scene has its share of celebrity goers-and-comers. But one that we’ve been noticing of late—maybe because, well, we didn’t peg him as the type—is rubbery comedian Jim Carrey. He cut a small but decided swath through fashion week and attended the dinner and after-party for Marchesa’s Spring ’11 collection. (Here he is above, meeting Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, with husband Harvey Weinstein, as Rachel Zoe looks on.) He then got spotted by the fashion crowd at Tuesday’s Shakira concert at Madison Square Garden. (Several editors, including Style.com’s beauty editor, were on hand to see the Colombian pop star perform to celebrate the launch of her fragrance—though none were seen to take cell phone video of the performance, as Carrey did.) And last night, Carrey rubbed elbows with the hordes of Brazilian bombshells—Gisele and Fernanda Motta among them—at the after-party for the Brazil Foundation gala at the Boom Boom Room.

What gives? To be honest, we’re not sure. According to IMDB, he’s currently developing a film adaptation of Where’s Waldo?—maybe he’s researching striped clothing. (Two words in that case, Jim: Saint James.) Pet detectives, if you’ve got any more clues, feel free to leave them below.

“Palm” Thursday

-------

Context changes everything. “Where you show a collection affects the way people view it,” Ruffian’s Brian Wolk explained last night at the label’s after-party—and perhaps, by extension, how a pair of designers see themselves. This season, Wolk and partner Claude Morais (left) showed at the tents for the first time ever, and dressed up accordingly in coat and tie. This was partially out of respect for Lincoln Center—”where Balanchine choreographed ballets and where Maria Callas sang,” Wolk remarked—but largely out of deference to the collection’s muse, an adventuring diplomat named Susan Travers. “It didn’t seem respectful to her not to dress the way she would have wanted her lover or husband to dress,” Wolk said.

And for the post-show celebration? Michael’s, the storied power-lunch spot where she would have wanted to munch on caviar and jumbo shrimp surrounded by blue-chip art and eighties haute design. The midtown restaurant has been seeing an injection of young blood lately—including, last night, Lance Bass and models Fernanda Motta and Julie Ordon. “We love to design clothing for women who live in cities with the word ‘Palm’ in them,” Wolk wisecracked. As might be expected, those women were elsewhere.
