Jean Paul Gaultier is the latest designer rumored to be getting the Target treatment. First Rodarte, now the French…what’s next? Maybe a diffusion line of looks from Cristobal Balenciaga’s archives. Sure to have mass appeal. [WWD]
As if the abuse he’s been getting in the blogosphere hasn’t been enough, Kanye West has now been invited to a formal roast. Whatever will they do for material? [Page Six]
You may have heard that Burberry is showing in London this season. More than once. Well, it’s a big deal, OK? So big that Christopher Bailey is documenting the whole thing on his cell phone. [The Moment]
Silence, haters. Victoria Beckham is a real designer. Jennifer Lopez is the latest very-famous-person to wear one of Posh’s dresses, and she wore it, drumroll please, to the White House. This means the likelihood of MObama wearing Beckham just got exponentially higher. [Daily Mail]
Salma Hayek, François-Henri Pinault, and the 200 guests at their Venice wedding party last weekend paid tribute to the Venetian tradition of Carnival with elaborate feathered face coverings—or were they trying to go incognito? Either way, designers beat them to the punch on the Fall runways. We saw R-rated blindfolds at Jean Paul Gaultier and lingerie disguises at Richard Nicoll. Much more tame were the animal masks that Erin Fetherston used in her finale, inspired as they were by the 1970 Catherine Deneuve fairy tale Peau d’âne. “There is nothing I like more than a girl in a mask and a party dress,” Fetherston told us. What about you?
“9:30, Sean coming, 11:30, workout, 5:00, David Letterman, 8:00, Showtime, 1:00, Meet Sandra.” Three guesses on whose handwritten journal this is. Well, considering the Sean is Penn and Sandra is old buddy Bernhard, you guessed right. This agenda, along with thousands of other personal effects, was brought together for a major Madonna moment—Simply Madonna: Materials from the Girl, an exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery in London. Along with notes, unknown lyrics, canceled checks, and the odd music video award, there are clothes, clothes, clothes. The pink bustier dress from the “Material Girl” video; the Jean Paul Gaultier black bustier from “Open your Heart;” the Evita wedding dress—all present and accounted for. Fans, historians, and stars—including Noel Gallagher, Vivienne Westwood, Bill Wyman, and a gaggle of Jagger offspring—packed into the Brick Lane space to soak up the Madge-factor. “It was a labor of love,” said curator Ted Owens as a Japanese viewer nearly fainted in front of the “Truth or Dare” pearls. “Of course, we would love Madonna to be here now and see this major love in, but I guess she is little busy right now with her divorce.” Yes, just a tad. All the items will be up for auction, which prompted the question: Does Mr. Owen think they’ll get the price they’d like, for, say, the “Material Girl dress? “Darling, Madonna is recession-proof.”
