And The Winners Are…Pants And Hats

-------

Alexander Wang, Vena Cava, and Albertus Swanepoel nabbed the three prizes last night at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, but the evening also featured a couple of prevalent looks, which we’d like to think of as winners in their own right. The first is the pant—particularly one that’s carrot-shaped and cropped—a trend which reached critical mass at the Spring collections in various forms. The covered-leg crew included Juliette Lewis in a sequined Phillip Lim jumpsuit, Chanel Iman in Daughters gray flannel, Agyness Deyn in a boyish tux, Liya Kebede in Proenza Schouler, Jessica Joffe in Helmut Lang, and Thelma Golden and Rachel Roy. With Swanepoel as a clearly worthy contender, it’s logical that millinery would also make a strong showing. Of course there was the designer’s own date, Coco Rocha, but joining her were Julie Gilhart in a jaunty mini top hat by Eugenia Kim, John Galliano in a daisy-strewn top hat, Deyn in a flattened boater from Marc Jacobs’ Spring show, and André Leon Talley in what looks like a very stylish evening hunting cap. Honorable mention goes to the one-shoulder dress, seen on Vogue‘s Meredith Melling Burke (in Peter Som) and Virginia Smith, and Style.com’s Candy Pratts Price, in Givenchy.

news brief

-------

Wearing underwear as outerwear is nothing new. Exposed bra straps date at least as far back as Madonna in her Desperately Seeking Susan days. Exposed underpants are a rather newer development, but there’s no denying that briefs are a bona fide trend. In the last few weeks, we’ve spotted party girls Liz Goldwyn, Juliette Lewis, and Daisy Lowe modeling them over black hose. And if designers have their way, we’ll be working the look sans tights come spring. Glorified panties—the term “short shorts” does not do them justice—were all over the runways, everywhere from Marni to MaxMara to Marc Jacobs. Will you dare to go bare? Let us know.

the happy middle of southside

-------

The number of New York City high-rollers may be dwindling by the hour, but as of this evening, the remaining few will have one more place to drop their hard-earned dollars on some booze. Co-owners Anthony Martignetti and James Willis have sited their new nightclub Southside in the very best location for exclusive drinking—in a basement, behind an unmarked door—and kitted the place out in a 1930′s Art Deco style that’s perhaps all too apropos to the current economic crisis. Anyway, the two owners swear up and down that their target customer is not the bottle service-loving banker man catered to over the course of Manhattan’s roaring oughts. The focus here is on Champagne and cocktails, like the fresh passion fruit juice, Hendrick’s gin, and cucumber Sunset. “We decided to open in Nolita because we wanted those kind of locals,” explains Martignetti. “A nice mix of people who can come in, have a drink, enjoy the crowd and the music.” At last night’s friends ‘n’ family opening, Juliette Lewis and Jamie Burke were among the glitterati drinking up to the tune of $16 cocktails—hardly exorbitant, but not exactly cheap, either. But then, that’s the happy middle Willis says Southside is aiming for. “Exclusive,” he sums up. “But not pretentious.” Cheers to that.

kate and jamie call it quits

-------

Kate Moss and rocker Jamie Hince have split up. Maybe Moss should look outside of the indie-musician rubric for her next relationship. How about a nice ophthalmologist? Just stay away from finance guys. They’re, um, not doing so hot right now.

You may never have heard of Milanese label Miss Bikini Luxe, but that didn’t stop actress-turned-songstress Juliette Lewis from turning model for the line’s runway show in Milan on Saturday. Judging by our exclusive video footage of Lewis playing dress-up, we should have known a catwalk career was imminent.

blasblog: an ode to the beatrice inn

-------

A major pastime in the rural parts of Missouri where I spent my childhood summers was caving. Yes, wading though mud in the dark in underground parts of the earth—woohoo. The first thing a caver learns is that if a bat flies into your face, it’s not an attack—it’s because bats memorize the layouts of their dark lairs and don’t bother checking their routes when they move around. The reason I relate this story is because I can say with some sense of authority that the Beatrice Inn has become New York’s bat cave. For some, perhaps including myself, it would be not entirely impossible to walk into that place blindfolded yet still know where the bar is, where the doorman sits, and depending on the hour, where the bathroom line starts and ends. Sure, I might still dabble in a Bungalow 8 here or a Socialista there, but when it comes to the Spring 2009 collections, it has been all about the Beatrice Inn. And I’m not the only one who thinks so: Both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have made cameos at the bar, as have Adrian Grenier, Juliette Lewis, Lou Doillon, Theodora Richards, and Joy Bryant. They were there for Chiara Clemente‘s birthday, Purple magazine’s after-dinner bash, and the Proenza Schouler post-show celebration. (And then there was that whole Sean Avery VIP area thing, which has in fact lasted all week as planned.) Last night—as people filed in from the V Magazine party, the Chanel dinner, and wherever else one might spend a Wednesday evening—was just another average night at the nightspot: Sharing the booths were Avery, Kirsten Dunst, Barbara Bush, and Tara Subkoff (all repeat fashion-week attendees) as well as new faces such as Rosetta Getty, Brendan Shanahan, Catherine Keener, and Amanda Scheer-Demme. And, unlike Sunday night, there wasn’t an FDNY-prompted evacuation.
