Giancarlo Giammetti Thought Jerry Hall Was A Call Girl

-------

Giancarlo GiammettiWhen Giancarlo Giammetti first met Jerry Hall, the supermodel told him that she was a cowgirl. However, to Giancarlo’s ear, her Texan twang made it sound like she said “call girl.” “I was really shocked…So I very shyly ask whether she arranged to meet her clients by phone or in person. She say, ‘What clients?’ I say, ‘You say you are a call girl.’ And she say, ‘No, no, no! I am a cowgirl!’ We became great friends.” Giammetti—the ultra-tan Italian force who’s served as Valentino Garavani’s business partner for 45 years—discusses this, his relationship with Valentino (occupational and otherwise), the influence of stylists, and more in the latest installment of Vanity Fair‘s “Out to Lunch” series. Apparently, Giammetti dined with journalist John Heilpern via Skype. Naturally, the former was stuck on Valentino’s yacht on the Aegean sea, and couldn’t make it for an IRL meal.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

-------

Fact: Kids tend to be embarrassed by their parents. However, when your mother is a supermodel, it changes things a bit. Or, at least, that seems to be the case with Georgia May Jagger and Jerry Hall, who hosted a tea party at the Sunglass Hut’s Fifth Avenue flagship yesterday in celebration of their new Mother’s Day-themed campaign. “She’s my style hero,” said Jagger of her glamazon mom. “My sister has great style too—all the women in my family do, actually.” It’s no surprise, then, that the leggy blonde twosome mirrored each other—with Hall sporting a leopard-print dress and Jagger in leopard-print platforms. As for raiding her daughter’s closet? “I certainly do for sunglasses,” Hall admitted. In fact, a sunnies-fueled spat unfolded before our very eyes. When Hall couldn’t find her favorite black cat-eye shades, she realized that her daughter had been holding them. “Those ones are mine!” Hall said, smiling. “Oh, we’re just fighting over sunglasses.”

Early next year, Alber Elbaz will debut his “700-page bible” on creating and designing Lanvin collections. The Elbaz-written book will include “a mix of text and pictures—and blank page.” [Telegraph]

This month, Ryan McGinley is set to show his first London exhibition in years at the Alison Jacques Gallery. The exhibit, opening November 24, will include seven works, all approximately six by nine feet in size. [Hint]

Georgia May Jagger’s Happy Medium

-------

“So many of my friends are models and are super-thin,” said Georgia May Jagger at the after party for her latest stint as designer for Hudson Jeans. “And even with them, there is always a bit of muffin top when they wear low-rise jeans. It’s just the nature of low rise.” She added with that famous toothy grin: “They squeeze whatever there is, whether it is fat, or just skin.”

It’s the private dinner following the launch of her jean line for Ben Taverniti’s Hudson at Selfridges, and she and her closest friends and family—including mom Jerry, brother James, friends Cara Delavigne and Mary Charteris—are relaxing at the Club at the Ivy, the private members’ bit of the famous Ivy restaurant. They are doing what rock people do best, dancing and partying, while GMJ lets us in on her design take on jeans: “I looked to my mom’s style as a starting point and decided early on to do a mid rise.” She herself was modeling the Ayesha cut; mom Jerry wore the Jerry jean. “Mid rise is such a perfect compromise, because I personally find both high and low can be uncomfortable. Mid rise holds you in properly, and look cleaner—all you have to do is look at pictures of my mom in the seventies to see what I mean.”

Speaking of pictures, that’s her next project: photography. She’s currently studying at New York’s School of Visual Arts, and was quick to demonstrate: She grabbed our camera for the impromptu self-portrait above. Pretty good, we’d have to admit. But could anyone, even an amateur, take a bad picture of that face?
