Max Raabe’s Carnegie Cabaret

-------

“We must seem very exotic,” said retro pop singer Max Raabe of his and Palast Orchester’s performance at Carnegie Hall last night. “The audiences in America have discovered that we have humor, despite being German.” He delivered the line with the same dry, dry, dry—did we mention dry?—wit as the one-liners he offered between songs. Last night he sang a selection of classic German 1920s pop songs—”It’s…in German,” he wryly warned the audience—in addition to stateside favorites from Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.

Despite the deadpan—or perhaps because of it—Raabe has a knack for filling concert halls. Only visiting New York every couple of years, there was something refreshing about his soigné performance, which recalled a Weimar-era German cabaret. He doesn’t move excessively around the stage, he doesn’t have backup dancers, and he certainly doesn’t use auto-tune. Even his coattails are made in the 1920s style by a custom tailor in Berlin. Keeping the production streamlined helps the music shine through. “For two hours, we take the audience away from reality, which is what this music was made for,” Raabe told Style.com. “It is unpolitical music, written to entertain an audience.”

When Julianna Margulies heard Raabe was coming to Carnegie Hall, she insisted on throwing an after-party at the Viceroy’s newly opened Kingside restaurant just a few doors down. “I can’t believe it, but I’m officially a groupie! I never thought I would be one, but when I heard Max’s voice…” Margulies isn’t the only fan: Alan Cumming, Christine Baranski, and Joshua Bell all turned out to toast Raabe. As Amy Fine Collins put it, “Max’s perfectionism and discipline is just everything.”

The L.B.D. Crew

-------

If you had any doubts about the power of a little black dress, Halle Berry is here to remind you. “A black dress always makes a girl look slimmer,” the actress (in a tiny black minidress) told us at Swarovski Elements’ 22 Ways to Say Black charity auction at Phillips de Pury last night. Julianna Margulies touted the L.B.D.’s evergreen versatility. “You find the perfect little black cocktail dress; then you just have to switch the shoes and accessories,” The Good Wife star advised. If the stars wanted another to add to their collection, they were in the right place: For the auction, Swarovski and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy commissioned 22 designers to create original L.B.D.s (using Swarovski crystal, naturally) to benefit the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Nationale Contre le Cancer. The inky creations—from a silk chiffon and duchesse satin number with jet crystal beading and cutouts by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci to a swingy trapeze dress layered with his signature tulle by Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz—raised $100,000.

But while a black cocktail dress could very well be a New Yorker’s go-to evening attire, Sofia Vergara, who spent the summer in the city for a movie role, played the, er, black sheep—in a purplish gray. “I wear a lot of black in my ‘real life’, but I usually try to wear color when I go out to things like this,” the actress said.

City Island Hop

-------

Despite being surrounded by water, Manhattan doesn’t make for your usual island living. But if an escape is what locals are after, try a jaunt to City Island, the cozy fishing village in the Bronx that happens to give a setting (and a title) to a new indie flick starring Julianna Margulies and Andy Garcia. City Island is a hilarious take on family dysfunction, and Garcia had a double dose of blood-runs-thicker-than-water: The actor’s real-life daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido plays his daughter on-screen. “She’s been wanting to do this since she was five years old,” Garcia said at the film’s premiere last night. “I read the script and saw a part in it for her, so I told her about it. She wanted to audition for it. But as for the rest of the decisions? I stayed out of it,” the actor added with a laugh.

Garcia-Lorido marveled at the quaint fishing village. “I never heard of it, but I grew up in California,” the fledgling actress explained. “But I have friends in New York who don’t even know about it!” That would exclude native New Yorker Vera Wang, who knows her hometown trivia. “Sure, I’ve been there,” the designer said. “I’ve gone out and had lobster.” She may soon be called upon to lead an expedition. “Well, we better all go and head out there now,” Narciso Rodriguez suggested at the after-party, where he mingled with Emily Mortimer, Parker Posey, Cynthia Rowley, and Sandra Bernhard. “I’m sure there’ll be a mad rush after the movie comes out!”

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: L’Wren Scott’s Latest Convert

-------

Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Julianna Margulies, Lucy Liu. L’Wren Scott has been on a roll lately, and tonight, at the world premiere of Sherlock Holmes in London, she scored another coup. We love Heather Graham in Scott’s body-hugging ivory polka-dot and lace minidress. As for the button-up booties? In our view, they add an edge we don’t usually associate with Rollergirl, but we’re guessing they’ll divide opinion. Where do you stand on the look?
