Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s much-hyped The Little Black Jacket traveling exhibition kicks off tonight with a party in Soho for celebrities and fashion industry insiders. The week-long homage to the French house classic will open to the public on Friday, with 113 black-and-white photographs of A-listers such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Joan Smalls, and Yoko Ono, who adapted the iconic jacket to fit their own personal style.

Paris men’s fashion week just got a little bigger. Band of Outsiders and Hardy Amies have both been confirmed to show for the first time during the June lineup. And in true Band of Outsiders fashion, the label’s designer, Scott Sternberg, has taken matters into his own hands, tapping one model to act as a living mannequin, who will show off all the looks during the course of a 60-hour period and live in a cardboard and wood plank box. Amies will show as part of the official calendar. [WWD]
A month after parting ways with former designer Manish Arora, Paco Rabanne has promoted its young studio design director, Lydia Maurer, to creative director of its womenswear.

Are Shaun White and Lily Collins a thing? Following Monday night’s CFDA Awards, rumors have been flying that the Olympic snowboarder is pursuing the young Mirror Mirror actress after a short stint with model Bar Refaeli. Reps for both had no comment. [Page Six]
Since launching his namesake accessories label in 2005, New York-based designer Matt Bernson has racked up an impressive following—Gisele Bündchen, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jessica Alba included. They and the rest of his growing fan base will be happy to hear that his chic, affordable line of shoes and bags is now available at the label’s first flagship, a 2,200-square-foot shop now open in Tribeca. Bernson and Joshua Pulver, Kate Spade’s architect of choice, decorated the space with custom and vintage furnishings and filled it with pieces from the new collection, which range from the puff leather T-strap Matteo heel to the downtown-cool Gitanes smoking slipper in pastel patent leather. Bernson even dabbled in the season’s sporty trend with the thin-stacked Shelby wedge made of perforated leather (pictured).
Matt Bernson is now open at 20 Harrison St., NYC, (212) 941-7634. Prices range from $134 to $218.
Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker have tied for the top of Forbes‘ ranking of Hollywood’s richest actresses: Both bring in annual earnings of $30 million. The Louis Vuitton campaign star (Jolie) had a good year with high-paying roles in Salt and The Tourist, while Parker makes her money largely from Sex and the City reruns. [Vogue.U.K.]
It’s no optical illusion: Lanvin is doing eyewear. The fashion house signed a deal with Italy’s De Rigo Vision SpA, who also has license agreements with brands like Givenchy and Carolina Herrera. The first batch of shades and prescription frames is due out in December, just in time for the holiday gift-giving season. [WWD]

And sad news from the art world: American artist Cy Twombly died in Rome yesterday, at the age of 83. [NYT]
The premieres weren’t quite as bright on Day 3 at Cannes, but Harvey Weinstein made sure that things stayed interesting: The ex-Miramax mogul held a VIP event to celebrate I Don’t Know How She Does It, hosted by the comedy’s star, Sarah Jessica Parker. Parker arrived for the occasion in Spring ’11 Dolce & Gabbana, a collection that’s had a strong showing on the Riviera this season. (Uma Thurman wore a similar dress by the label to a photo call earlier this week; Carine Roitfeld wore one to the Chanel Cruise show in Antibes.) And despite over-accessorizing by perhaps a pearl necklace or two, SJP did Dolce right.
Over—as in over the top—is also the word for Fan Bingbing, the fashion-plate Chinese actress who made a big splash at the premiere of Poliss. Bingbing is rarely less than daring in her red-carpet picks, but the ruffled, baroque bustier gown she trotted out matches anything on the big screen for drama.
Your favorite? Any looks we missed? Feel free to let us know, below.
The thing to wear at last night’s Met gala? Recent and vintage frocks by the evening’s honoree, Alexander McQueen. On the night when everyone dresses to outdo, McQueen got some of the biggest gets. Let’s review, shall we?
In the contemporary camp were Anna Dello Russo, who went for the egghead look in a duchesse satin tailcoat and embroidered trousers from Spring ’11; Coco Rocha, who wore a navy halter dress from pre-fall ’11; and Raquel Zimmermann, who chose Fall ’11.
Others chose to trawl the archives. Sarah Jessica Parker and lady in red Gisele went with Fall ’05 (above, and with the original runway looks); Karen Elson opted for Spring ’04 (and as you can see above, she modeled it in the original show, too).
And a few of the evening’s brightest lights chose one-of-a-kind. Chair Salma Hayek and McQueen pal Naomi Campbell both wore archival couture pieces.
And then, of course, there’s Daphne Guinness. McQueen’s close friend wore a feathered lilac dress from Spring ’11, but her gala prep was more public than most. Guinness got dressed for the event in the windows at Barneys.
