The latest French uproar is over Carla and Sarko living la vida loca in Mexico while their people get poorer by the minute (the euro’s not what it used to be, sad to say).

Step aside, Zaha Hadid. Chanel’s world-traveling Mobile Art Pavilion (which had to land permanently mid-trip) has met its match in Prada‘s Rem Koolhaas-designed Transformer, a mutable steel tetrahedron galleryspace.

Our previous, um, exposure to France’s first lady has proved that she’s no wallflower. So it’s not much of a surprise to learn Carla Bruni-Sarkozy green- lighted a documentary following her courtship with the French president while he was still married. Only in France, kids, which, sadly, is the only place this little gem will be showing (for now).
If your look can be described as “American-Apparel-by-way- of-Bergdorf,” perhaps Chloe 81, the next pretender to the Beatrice Inn’s dark and smoky throne, should be your New Year’s Eve destination. Hurry, before Sean Avery claims a VIP section.
Remember yesterday’s nifty Bill Blass study guide? Well, today’s news of the company’s $10 million sale is all the more reason to study up, particularly since the new owners may be aiming for a runway revival.
Party attendees for 2008 by the numbers: Eva Mendes , the Gossip Girl cast, and Peaches Geldof (that loveable Brit) all perfected the pose-and-get-paid stance required of celebs. Congratulations to all. It ain’t easy being ubiquitous.
