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.

Moore No More, Baby Weinstein Makes Three, Lacoste’s New Hire, And More…

VF Anoints Carey, Carla, Gaga, And More

-------

The issue itself—the much-blogged, Lady Gaga-covered September Vanity Fair—doesn’t hit stands until Thursday, but royal watchers, social chroniclers, and the legions of Little Monsters can get the answers they’ve waited for today: VF‘s International Best-Dressed List is now online.

Conclusions? It’s a good time to be in politics. Michelle Obama made the women’s list, as did SamCam (a.k.a. Samantha Cameron, wife of Britain’s new prime minister, David Cameron), and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Carey Mulligan and Diane Kruger made their first appearances on the women’s list as well. On the Originals list, Lady Gaga makes her debut, joining Helena Bonham Carter, John Galliano, and the Duchess of Alba, among others. On the men’s side, Waris Ahluwahlia shares space with Javier Bardem, Alec Baldwin (on the list after a 21-year hiatus), and André Balazs, to name a few. And the fashion industry is repped by Tory Burch, Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman, Alice + Oliva’s Stacey Bendet, Alber Elbaz, and Glamour‘s Cindi Leive.

The complete list—including couples, sibling pairs, and the hall of fame—is now up at www.vanityfair.com.

Rachel Zoe Piles It On

-------

A-list celebrities and legions of QVC shoppers aren’t the only people who have been influenced by Rachel Zoe’s trademark style. At yesterday’s preview party for Zoe’s new QVC collection at the Gramercy Park Hotel, attendees included not only Zoe faves Prabal Gurung, Brian Atwood, and Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig but Zoe’s mom, too. And as the stylist-to-the-stars gave a tour of her new duds, the materfamilias couldn’t help but chime in now and then. “I’m designing for everyone,” Zoe (left, with designer Mandy Coon) said, citing a shaggy faux-fur jacket and an oversize pashmina-style wrap. “That jacket’s for one girl—like, a Kate Hudson girl, fun, funky, easy. The wrap is more like for a classy Jennifer Garner girl. And then,” she added, “there’s me, and I just wear all of it. Throw it all on!” Mom, standing in the background, took the opportunity to jangle her Rachel Zoe for QVC jewelry. “Look!” she said. “I’m wearing a lot, too!” Apparently, maximalism runs in the family.

At DVF, Mother Knows Best

-------

It was ladies’ night at Diane von Furstenberg’s studio last night—though when is it not?—but these were ladies of a certain subspecialty: moms. Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and DVF—mom to TVF (Tatiana), a budding filmmaker, and AVF (Alex), an investment manager—was throwing a party to celebrate both the occasion and a certain mom-friendly film, Christy Turlington Burns’ directorial debut, No Woman, No Cry. The documentary focuses on maternal mortality and raises money for the White Ribbon Alliance, an organization that aims to promote global maternal health. So, too, does DVF’s new tee, which the designer sported last night, on which “Love is life” is spelled out in white ribbon. “[British First Lady and WRA global patron] Sarah Brown gave this incredible dinner and she asked women what we were going to do,” von Furstenberg explained, “so I said I would make this T-shirt.” A portion of the proceeds from the shirt, as with any merchandise purchased before Mother’s Day in the store downstairs, will go toward the WRA. The designer addressed the crowd with a tribute to mothers the world over and, in particular, to her own mother, “a strong woman for whom fear was never an option.” Roll clip!

“It’s all very personal to me now,” said co-host Georgina Chapman (pictured, right, with von Furstenberg and Turlington Burns) of the cause after the snippet of No Woman, No Cry, “because I am pregnant. It’s something I think we take for granted, but we’re really lucky to have the health care we have.” Support was the theme of the evening. “I’ve spent two years making this movie,” Turlington Burns said, “and the White Ribbon ladies have been so supportive.” It premiered at Tribeca last week, but, explained the filmmaker, “It’s just the beginning of what I want to do. Now begins the outreach and the education.”
