R.I.P. Annabel Tollman

-------

Annabel Tollman New York-based stylist Annabel Tollman died unexpectedly last night, her agent confirmed to Style.com this morning. Tollman was a regular presence on the fashion scene, transitioning from a role as Interview‘s fashion director into an all-purpose stylist, commentator, brand ambassador, and television personality. (She worked with eBay’s fashion channel and had a fashion-based reality show in the works with Bravo; the expat Brit last spoke with Style.com about Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress.) Memorials are pouring in to her Facebook page and elsewhere. She will be missed.

Fame For Sale

-------

Art and celebrity, celebrity artists, the art of celebrity—it’s all a big blur. But an intriguing blur, nonetheless. Starting tomorrow, online auction house Paddle8 will play to our fascination with art, celebrity, and everything in between with Somebody, a fame-themed sale. Launching in collaboration with Interview magazine (i.e., the magazine that Andy Warhol—the grandfather of celebrity/art cross-pollination—founded), the auction will offer 40 celeb-centric works by the likes of Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Richard Prince, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Warhol himself, and more. You can browse the sale, and its famous faces, until it ends on March 27.

From Russia With Airbrushing And Masks

-------

“With this and then Allison Sarofim’s annual [pre-Halloween] costume party, I might as well call it a night on Halloween,” joked Fabiola Beracasa, who hosted last night’s Russian Masquerade-themed affair in a jewel-encrusted, floor-length gown, fur muffler, and hat.

The two-part masquerade started with a girl-bonding makeup session at Milk Studios, where a team from MAC was ready with airbrushing tricks and colored gems. Genevieve Jones showed up in all black, explaining, “I thought a blank palette was best for the makeup artists to do their tricks.” Sophia Lamar’s frilly Giambattista Valli dress and Minnie Mouse mask didn’t exactly say Moscow, but she carried the look with considerable panache. Wren designer Melissa Coker, in town from L.A. showing her line to buyers and editors, opted to go sans mask. “I’m wearing leather and lace, though,” Coker said, pointing out her outfit and the night’s drink of choice, Stoli’s Leather and Lace martini.

While it usually doesn’t take much convincing to motivate the fashion set to play dress-up, the full-on costumes at SL for part deux of the masked affair were impressively equal parts Doctor Zhivago and Eyes Wide Shut. Guests, including amazing gender-bendy model Martin Cohn (pictured above with Beracasa) and beauty blogger Sarah Howard, packed the two-month-old former Lotus space. Naturally, with the free-flowing vodka, the fancy-dress fête soon turned to a dance party atop the banquettes. Until next year, das vadanya.
