Yes, Lindsay, it’s called pre-fall. Miss Lohan was pretty sure she had more time to work on her sophomore Ungaro collection, but the next show is fast approaching: “It’s already in January…I thought it was in March.” [People]
We didn’t know this was a revolving title, but apparently Inès de la Fressange has replaced Carla Bruni-Sarkozy as “the Most Chic Woman in Paris.” She’s certainly stylish, but check her out above, what do you think? [Telegraph U.K.]
Speaking of Inès, Karl Lagerfeld once had some not so nice things to say about her. Here, a handy compilation of the Kaiser’s bons mots over the years. [Jezebel]
Gucci catches on to the social media trend with the launch of a “global, multilingual, social networking microsite” today. Gucci lovers can upload pictures of themselves, which will be reflected in shades from new line Gucci Eyeweb. Next month, they’re switching to ski goggles. Very clever. [WWD]
Penélope Cruz in SATC 2? Now we’re interested. [People]
We first caught up with comedienne Casey Wilson during her freshman season at SNL. Since then the funny girl has been cast alongside Meryl Streep and Amy Adams (in the upcoming Julie & Julia) and named one of Variety‘s “10 Comics to Watch.” The hype for perhaps her biggest project— Bride Wars, the film she co-wrote with her longtime writing partner June Diane Raphael—has been building at a rapid pace, thanks in part to footage of co-stars Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway prepping for some major cinematic catfights. Bride Wars opens in theaters this Friday, and Wilson took some time before the big night to talk to Style.com about Don Draper, her fount of inspiration, and channeling cougars. And—attention Hollywood— Wilson and Raphael are looking for a producer for their next script; we’re calling this one a wise investment.
What was the script-writing process like for Bride Wars?
The idea had already been out there. A producer saw me and June performing in this two-woman show we have, Rode Hard and Put Away Wet, in Aspen at the Comedy Arts HBO Festival—this was four years ago—and told us she was looking for people to rewrite Bride Wars. We hadn’t written anything before, but we put together a pitch and basically went over to Kate Hudson’s house. We pitched it to her, and she hired us. God love her.
