Even Brad Pitt has a hard time getting a job these days. Moneyball, his latest project with Steven Soderbergh, due to start production today, was dropped by Columbia Pictures. All this after the studio had gotten to “the equivalent of third base” with Pitt and co. What a tease. [Variety]
Prince Harry’s in town, New Yorkers, and he and super-hunk Nacho Figueras are set to go head-to-head in a polo match tomorrow on Governors Island. Go on and show them a warm American welcome. [The Washington Post]
News of Veronique Branquinho shuttering yesterday means an adjustment to the schedule at Paris men’s fashion week in June. Here’s a list of who’s in and who’s out for the boys. [WWD]
Today’s item on “Runway Rookie” Ana Claudia Michels struck us as being a little out of date. Is someone who’s been stomping the catwalk since the turn of this century truly considered a newcomer? Surely, fashion is more fickle than that. Rather than being a nouveau replacement for fellow Brazilian bombshell Gisele, as the piece suggests, Ana Claudia is one of the supe’s contemporaries (the proof is in this shot we found of Michels backstage at Versus circa 2001, rocking clearly nineties hair). We hereby undub Michels any sort of cutting-edge catwalk figure (not that she doesn’t look fab). Who should go in her place? Give us your list of this season’s hottest runway newbies.
We had the scoop in our party report, but now it’s official: Dasha Zhukova, London’s hottest Russian transplant and art star, will take Katie Grand’s abandoned spot at Pop. We have until September 1 to await the first issue. [WWD]
Gisele and Tom tied the knot in Santa Monica last night, and even though the ceremony was small, Gisele’s Dolce & Gabbana dress was not. We’re talking big skirt, long train, satin roses, floor-length veil, and, of course, Dolce lace dog collars for the pooches. Tom, we guess, was in full pads. [Us Weekly]
Ellen von Unwerth’s behind-the-scenes shots at last month’s Couture shows are of the goofy, fantastic variety. We like Erin Heatherton doing a fish face, but we love Tanya Dziahileva towering over Anna Piaggi. [The Moment]
You can tell fashion is in serious flux when Brazilian megabrand Colcci scales back its spectacular show at São Paulo fashion week. This time around the clothes were sent down a simple white runway to a pounding, apocalyptic techno soundtrack. The designs were stripped to ladylike essentials in a neutral palette, finding form in a passage of little black dresses, tailored jackets, and lean-cut trousers. Almost missing were the skintight jeans on which the company has built its success. Except for the occasional bondage harness, the clothes could have passed as interview wear, albeit for a slightly sexy job. [Editor's note: You mean like fashion blogger?] It’s the end of the Colcci world as we know it, at least for the time being, but thankfully one thing remained the same: the deafening screams that rang out when everyone’s favorite bodacious Brasileira, Gisele Bündchen, strutted down the catwalk. This season, however, there was a sensationalistic distraction in the front row, diverting some of the media attention. It was Jesus Luz, better known as Madonna’s aptly named boy-toy. Mobbed by cameras, the 21-year-old model played the part of celebrity well. Our advice? Enjoy your 15 minutes while it lasts, Mr. Luz. Given Madge’s appetite for love, your days may well be numbered.
