los angeles fashion week: where’s liz goldywn?

-------

Don’t expect to see Liz Goldwyn out and about this Los Angeles fashion week. “I’m far too immersed in some upcoming art and museum projects,” says the multi-talented West Coast style maven. “I’m curating a film series that will be screened in conjunction with the Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008 exhibit at LACMA, which starts later this month.” In addition to Goldwyn’s triple-header selection of titles, which falls under an “Anti-Glamour Documentaries” theme, Angelenos will be treated to a roundup of Q&A sessions featuring Goldwyn. First she’ll be interviewed on the topic of her 2005 directorial debut, Pretty Things, and at a later date she’ll take on the role of moderator by posing questions to fellow directors whose films are included in her lineup: Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens) and Lauren Greenfield (Thin)

los angeles fashion week: julia clancey’s cote d’azur inspiration

-------

“It was amazing and she is amazing,” beamed the proud mother of Julia Clancey from the front row of her daughter’s show at Smashbox Studios last night. The Brit expat, who now calls Marina del Rey home, presented a collection of sweeping halter dresses and caftans in shades of turquoise and apricot, which she told us backstage after the show were inspired by Monaco and Saint-Tropez. The silver sparkles and sequin-edged scalloping would certainly be perfectly suited to either place. We’re not quite sure if we can say the same about the red-headed model who made several quasi mystical laps—all flowing arms and dramatic turns—down the catwalk. Clancey’s father approved, though. “That’s the kind of woman that leaves a lump in my throat,” he said.

los angeles fashion week: brunch at the chateau

-------

The Los Angeles fashion week calendar isn’t exactly jam-packed with shows this season. So where is the West Coast fashion pack this week? The Chateau Marmont, for one. That’s where the likes of Rosetta Getty, a five-months-pregnant Brigette Romanek, and Paz de la Huerta were spotted yesterday morning attending a fundraiser brunch co-hosted by Rose Apodaca, Carla Gugino, Erica Davies, and Anastasia Soare. Funds were being raised to stop Proposition 8, an intiative that aims to keep same-sex marriage illegal. “Does anyone know Tom Ford or Donatella Versace?” asked Geoff Kors, Equality California’s executive director. “Because right now every little bit helps, but what we need are $100,000 checks like the ones written by Brad Pitt or Steven Spielberg to help secure change in our history.” Constitutional rights and fashion (what else?) dominated conversations for most. But de la Huerta did give us a few details about her next movie project: It’s a drama, and it starts pre-production in Amsterdam later this week.

get on the bus: bettina hubby’s los angeles

-------

To kick off Los Angeles fashion week, artist-cum-fashion designer Bettina Hubby staged a different sort of show on Sunday. More than 40 guests were treated to a three-hour bus tour of Hubby’s East L.A. haunts, each setting the stage for a specially commissioned performance and a new addition to HubbyCo, her reconfigured clothing collection. “L.A. is so many cities to so many different people, and I wanted to pay homage to the places in my neighborhood that make it such a well-rounded place,” explained Hubby, whose work is being showcased in Silver Lake’s A+R boutique through November 2. Her L.A. is a more eclectic place than one might expect, as evidenced by the tour’s vignettes—a tranquil, nature-inspired a capella number and foliage-festooned jumpsuits atop Barnsdell Art Park; a pair of sweetly appliquéd dresses with matching floral headpieces at her local florist; and even a rousing lap dance by performance artist Peggy Pabustan, at Hubby’s strip club of choice, Cheetah’s, a stop that solved the puzzle of the tour bus’ poles and mirrored floors.
