Rebel Rebel

-------

There were plenty of quasi-rebellious aesthetics at last night’s Met Ball, like bleached, black, and safety-pinned hair (from Anne Hathaway, Karlie Kloss, and Giovanna Battaglia, respectively), torn-fishnet looks (Miley Cyrus and Madonna), and dangerous hardware (Joan Smalls had a razor-blade earring, and ear cuffs and cage rings abounded). But as Anthony Vaccarello put it, “Punk is an attitude,”—that’s to say, starlets can wear all the ripped gowns and goth makeup they’d like, but if they don’t have that hard-edged “who cares” demeanor, they’re just another chick in a punk costume. While on the red carpet, we gave the Met Ball’s sartorial stars a chance to earn some cred and asked them about their most rebellious moments. Here’s what they said:

Greta Gerwig: “Last year at the Met Ball, I fell down an entire flight of stairs. I won’t do it this year. I’m trying to not drink as much. There’s something about well-behaved starlets that makes me just want to burn something.”

Kate Upton: “I don’t really know that I went through a rebellious phase. Maybe it was starting as a swimsuit model and going into high fashion.”

Joseph Altuzarra: “I used to wear one long, dangly earring. It was very ‘gay pirate.’”

Allison Williams: “When glitter was really big, I wasn’t allowed to wear it. But I’d steal it, put it in my backpack, and put it on, on the bus. Once, my mom surprised me at school and found me covered in glitter and was very angry. I also lied that my grandmother was dead once. She wasn’t. That was pretty rebellious.”

Jimmy Fallon: “I taped posters on my ceiling when my parents really didn’t want me to do that.”

Anja Rubik: “The most rebellious thing I’ve ever done is I snuck backstage [at a] Marilyn Manson [concert] many, many years ago. I was a huge fan of his. It was cool.”

Anthony Vaccarello: “The most rebellious thing I’ve ever done? That dress for last year’s Met Ball.”

Tom Ford: “I don’t drink anymore. I can’t tell you.”

Matthew James Thomas: “I did graffiti, lots of graffiti, when I was a kid. I had my own tag word that I used to use. I can’t tell you [what it is]. I’ll have the police knocking on my door.”

Jason Wu: “I dyed my hair every color when I was young.”

Mindy Kaling: “I’m a friendly person. The most punk thing about me is that I’m friendly, so I’m like, Oh, I guess that’s a subversion.”

Greta Gerwig Goes Goggle Eyed

-------

It’s not easy to look good in paintball goggles, but somehow, Greta Gerwig pulls it off. The actress—who features in the upcoming film Frances Ha, out this May—slipped into Band of Outsiders’ Spring 2013 collection to star in the brand’s new Polaroid campaign. The best part of the quirky ads—which debut here and will be rolled out daily on Band’s tumblr—is the fact that creative director Scott Sternberg shot them on location at a California paintball park. We’re happy to see that Gerwig is putting safety first. Continue Reading “Greta Gerwig Goes Goggle Eyed” »

Greta Gerwig On Sex, Her New Woody Allen Film, And More

-------

Where most romantic comedies end, Lola Versus (starring Greta Gerwig) begins, complete with the precious montage of the marriage proposal. From there, the film gets so tenderly awkward that a sex scene set to Ani DiFranco doesn’t even seem off. “Is that embarrassing? Because I’ve probably also had sex to Ani DiFranco,” said Gerwig (pictured, right) at last night’s Cinema Society premiere in New York. “And, weirdly, I dated a boy who loved her—he’s magical.”

Gerwig knows about magic. The 28-year-old actress has risen from indie film ingenue to major name, showing up next in Woody Allen’s new movie To Rome With Love. “Being chosen by Woody Allen, it’s like being chosen by God!” Gerwig shares her adoration with Zoe Lister-Jones, who co-wrote and directed Lola Versus, with boyfriend Darryl Wein, and plays Gerwig’s best friend in the film. “We were inspired by odd seventies comedies,” explained Lister-Jones before the screening at the SVA Theatre. “And I grew up on Woody Allen, who has this unmistakable take on modern relationships that I’ll always love.”

The idol chatter continued at the Boom Boom Room after-party, where Prabal Gurung, Noah Baumbach, and Parker Posey mingled with the cast. “I’m going to be Patti Smith!” said The Borgias‘ Mickey Sumner (pictured, left), daughter of Sting, who has just been picked to play the rock priestess in Randall Miller’s CBGB. “I’m terrified! There’s no one better than her.”

Peter Pilotto’s Only Happy When It Rains

-------

The British Fashion Council imported a truckload of London-based designers to hang out in NYC for the week, and more than a few of them turned up at the Jane Hotel outpost of Cafe Gitane last night for a dinner in honor of Peter Pilotto. Pilotto and partner Christopher De Vos got the wine ‘n’ dine treatment courtesy of hosts Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, and the guest list was suitably transatlantic: Team U.K. included Nicholas Kirkwood, Louise Gray, and Linda Farrow’s Simon Jablon, while Team U.S.A. was capably represented by Spike Jonze, Jen Brill, actress Greta Gerwig, and Fiery Furnaces frontwoman Eleanor Friedberger, among others. Naturally, talk turned-—as it will—to static cling. “Every other minute, it was ‘zap, zap,’” recalled De Vos (pictured, center, with Pilotto), unspooling an anecdote about the “epic” staticky-ness of the studio he and Pilotto moved into last summer. Long story short, the unusually hot and dry weather had combined with the studio’s layout and engineering to produce a superconductive atmosphere. “All the fabric was sticking,” De Vos continued. “People were telling us, spray hair spray on the models. I mean, it was impossible to drape.” Ultimately, the situation was redressed courtesy of about a dozen humidifiers, but De Vos and Pilotto admit that their Spring ’10 collection came this close to being ultra-body con, because it began to seem easier to go with the cling than to fight it. “You almost never hear this in London,” De Vos said, “but I have to tell you, we were happy to have some rain.”
