A Rivalry Reignited At The Box Office?

-------


Yves Saint Laurent has exerted a strong pull on moviemakers. In 2010, he was the subject, along with partner Pierre Bergé, of Amour Fou, Pierre Thoretton’s documentary. Now he’s getting the biopic treatment, courtesy of director Bertrand Bonello (House of Tolerance). And for the role of Yves? French actor Gaspard Ulliel (Hannibal Rising, A Very Long Engagement) who has done a few rounds on the fashion circuit as well—for Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld selected Ulliel to front Chanel Bleu for Men, and Lagerfeld, as any devoted fashion historian knows, maintained a well-publicized rivalry with Saint Laurent during the ’70s. Could this latest box office turn send Ulliel spiraling out of the Kaiser’s favor?

Plus-Ones: Who’ll Be Arm-In-Arm At The Met On Monday

-------

Last night’s model-packed dinner for Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing reminded you of what you already knew: The world is in town for Monday’s Met gala. Rousteing had flown in from Paris for the occasion, as had his fellow designer Anthony Vaccarello, also in attendance. And so, too, had some of the runway’s top models, who are fitting the gala in between their hectic shooting schedules. So who’s going with whom?

Rousteing revealed that he’s taking Joan Smalls as his date, though he couldn’t say what she’d been wearing: He made four dresses, and Joan will make her own pick. Vaccarello is taking Anja Rubik, who closed his Fall ’12 show. Constance Jablonski, who spent dinner tête-à-tête with Kasia Struss, will be with Haider Ackermann. And Karlie Kloss, fresh from shooting in Bahia, will accompany Jason Wu. “He comes up to about my waist,” the Amazonian model said with a laugh. “But it’s his own fault. He picks the shoes!”

In other Met news, Roland Mouret will bring Doutzen Kroes, and Chanel will bring Gaspard Ulliel, the French actor who is the face of its Bleu de Chanel fragrance. Nordstrom’s table, hosted by Pete Nordstrom and Jeffrey Kalinsky, will seat several of the nights heavy hitters: Alexander Wang with Azealia Banks; Erdem Moralioglu with Arizona Muse; Rachel Zoe with Karolina Kurkova and Zoe’s husband Rodger Berman; and Thakoon Panichgul with Christina Ricci.
