Lara Gets Some Air, Irina Takes Japan, Mandy’s Movie Night, And More…

-------

Lara Stone’s world domination continues—and her latest medium is TV. She’ll appear alongside Tyson Ballou in the new Calvin Klein Collection TV spots, which hit the airwaves during the Golden Globes’ red-carpet coverage and play throughout the show. Curious? Get a sneak peek, below. [Fashionologie]

Speaking of world-conquering models, Irina Lazareanu’s collection, Irina L., is launching at last this month—in Japan. Somehow, we don’t think that this minor detail will stop Irina fanatics from getting their hands on it. [Racked]

Rock stars: the new curators? Dance-pop headliners Scissor Sisters have added a new feather to their collective cap: Together with London’s Alison Jacques Gallery, they’ve curated a show of work by Robert Mapplethorpe, a photo of whose graced SS’ most recent album. [Hint Mag]

And fellow multi-talent Mandy Coon—lately named a winner of Ecco Domani’s Fashion Foundation grants—is trying her hand at curating, too, though of the cinematic variety: She’s organized the Fashion in Film-Designer Inspiration movie night series to screen sartorially relevant flicks. First up? Ingmar Bergman’s Persona. [T]

Zahm Looks For Love
(But First, A Dance At Le Bain)

-------



Last night, a heavy wind put a slight damper on what was to be Zadig & Voltaire’s dinner on the rooftop of the Standard. Instead of a windblown dinner, guests were served bite-sized sliders and sea bass downstairs, hot tub-side at Le Bain. But there was less eating going on than boogieing. The evening’s host, Purple‘s Olivier Zahm, who shoots the ad campaigns for the French label, spent much of his time chatting up Dree Hemingway (pictured with Zahm, above) and Byrdie Bell, and getting down on the dance floor with Irina Lazareanu and Eniko Mihalik (pictured with Zahm, top). “It’s a good floor to dance on; you can slide but not too much,” Zahm mused of the tiles.

Think of that dancing as research—Zahm is thinking of his next Z&V shoot and wants to focus on paramours. “I told them I want to shoot couples,” he said. “We haven’t decided yet, but one day it will be me with my new girlfriend.” (Zahm is newly single, a fact he announced with a heartfelt post on Purple‘s blog that set off a chain of online condolences.) Last night, he said he’s ready to change because “I’m always losing the one I love.”

But it’s not only his approach to romance that may evolve; it’s his look, too. “For men, it’s not easy to not be silly when you follow fashion. For a man your look has to be organic. I think I’m getting more and more into fashion. I want a cleaner look. It’s a softer touch because I feel like I need to be,” he says, gesturing to his ensemble, which included a black velvet dinner jacket. “Girls like it softer, right?”

Now, Girls Allowed

The noise was deafening, the room was packed, and Alice Glass of the Canadian electro outfit Crystal Castles was throwing herself around the stage like a rag doll—but compared to the star-studded ragers Don Hill’s has been throwing all fashion week, last night’s launch party for fashion mag The Dirty Durty Diary was actually pretty low-key. Larry Clark had been meant to host, but it was Irina Lazareanu who was holding down the front table with Nur Khan—literally. The crowd kept surging back into it, endangering their tequila. (But on the evidence of all the bottles DeLeón keeps on the wall to tout its sponsorship, there’s plenty more where that came from.)

Khan likes to say that one goal in rehabilitating Don Hill’s was to make it more “female-friendly,” and Lazareanu agreed that makes sense. “Nur has loads of female friends,” she chuckled, adding that even rocker chicks prefer clean bathrooms—”and we don’t like when the seat is up. With Babyshambles, touring with the four boys, I’d go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and fall right in the fucking bowl every time.”

Incidentally, Lazareanu is taking the stage with Doherty and Sean Lennon in Paris on October 4 for the show she says would have happened in New York last June, had Doherty not had been turned away by immigration authorities at JFK. “Apparently the French laws are not as extreme as the American ones,” she said. And the bathrooms? We won’t touch that one.

Corduroy And We Work Present Cheesecake For Charity

We Work and Corduroy magazine are throwing down at Milk Studios tonight, celebrating the pub’s Spring/Summer issue with an all-star jam session and a silent auction of photographs that will benefit women’s microfinance organization Kiva. Leigh Lezark (above), is one of many women lensed for the sale by a photographer pal (in her case, Dan Martensen). Check out more exclusive preview images of Irina Lazareanu by Alexandra Carr (slightly NSFW), Lily Aldridge by Johnny Giunta, and Paz de la Huerta by Richard Kern, below.

Yea, Nay, or Eh: Irina Lazareanu, Candy Striper

-------

Model-slash-chanteuse Irina Lazareanu stood out at last night’s party for Gaia Repossi and Eugenie Niarchos’ new jewelry collection, where the uniform seemed to be some incarnation of black, often very short and tight. Lazareanu’s candy-striped satin dress worn with pearls and a funny little bejeweled vintage hat had a sort of ladylike eclecticism not often seen in these parts. But Lazareanu kept the look fresh with her cropped ‘do and boyish blazer. What do you think of Lazareanu’s break from the pack?
