Just Kids (And Their Moms)


Despite their busy, Emmy event-filled schedules this past weekend, Hollywood moms turned out to support Stella McCartney’s charity event. With their young ones in tow, the likes of Selma Blair and Monet Mazur fêted the woman they refer to as the ultimate über-mom and her adorable pint-sized kids’ collection. (McCartney, however, didn’t even make it across the pond for the event because she’s busy prepping for her upcoming runway show.)

For the occasion, the back of McCartney’s Beverly Boulevard boutique was transformed into a carnival. While kids took their turns in the petting zoo (rumor has it the flock was fresh off the set of Lady Gaga’s latest music video), the moms shopped (after all, 10 percent of all proceeds of the day went to the Children’s Action Network).

“I really kind of wish I worked for Stella,” Blair, who recently returned to acting, told while she cradled her 7-week-old son, Arthur, in her arms. “Not only is she a friend, but it’s an organization that pays incredible attention and care to a woman’s and family’s needs, which is just so important to me right now.”

Selma Blair, Woman of Simple Tastes?


It was a reunion of sorts: Ginnifer Goodwin, Selma Blair, a host of fabulous Bulgari jewels, and me. The occasion was Bulgari’s dinner at L.A.’s Sunset Tower last night, in honor of the upcoming Christie’s auction of the Italian jewelry house’s 125th Anniversary Collection. It was just six months ago that we’d all celebrated Bulgari’s milestone birthday in Rome. Any favorite pieces? Of course. “I’m just a simple girl—I’ll go for the rubellite tourmaline and diamond ring, 37 carats,” Blair deadpanned. (It certainly wouldn’t have been out of place in more-is-more Houston, where she just finished a run in the new play Gruesome Playground Injuries; we hear its next stop is Broadway.) Goodwin, in a Rebecca Minkoff blouse and Antonio Berardi skirt, made sure to tell her boyfriend, Joey Kern, “I would bid on any and all of the Serpent bracelets.” They won’t be cheap, but at least they’ll be virtuous: The auction profits go to benefit Save the Children’s Rewrite the Future campaign, providing funds for the education of children living in war zones and other areas of conflict.

DecadesTwo Pop-Up Round Two Opens Today


Christos Garkinos: Hello.
Caller from Denver: Hey Christos, I went through my closet and found 30 Chanel bags. Do you think people in New York will want those?
Garkinos: Um, yes.
Caller: Well, I will just FedEx them over to you in the Big Apple. Oh, should I take the original price tags off?
Garkinos: Um, no.
Garkinos: [In his head] I die.

And this is how DecadesTwo owner Christos Garkinos makes it possible for those whacked by economy, both buyers and sellers, to maintain appearances. Starting today, Garkinos and his vast cache of consigned treasures return to New York for a four-day pop-up shop at Kiki de Montparnasse, their second so far. There are some changes from the couture-heavy sale back in May, namely the addition of ready-to-wear and more accessories. I visited yesterday and clocked a giant rack of Chanel dresses and jackets and lots of better-than-sample-sale prices: a Balenciaga L.B.D. for less than $500, a Prada fur coat from Fall 2007 for $300, and this insane pile of Chanel bags pictured above.

Who exactly parts with this luxe merch in the first place? Viewers of The Rachel Zoe Project may remember Garkinos’ cameo from a recent episode, so that’s one. Other consigning culprits include Selma Blair, Julianne Moore, and Courtney Love. If you’re going for one-of-a-kind, there’s the gray tulle Versace gown worn by Christina Ricci at the Oscars. The pop-up pops down on Sunday, but there’s a chance it may be a more permanent fixture. Garkinos says that the last sale grossed more in four days than he did his first year in business on Melrose.

DecadesTwo Pop-Up at Kiki de Montparnasse, 79 Greene St., October 1-4.

Blasblog: Beatrice, Good And Empty. Huh?


If you heard about the crush at Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld’s after-party at Indochine, be assured it was no exaggeration. Potted plants were tipped over, drinks were spilled, and strangers became extremely intimate with each other while trying to squeeze from one empty pocket of the room to the next. That’s why Benicio Del Toro started a migration to the Beatrice Inn soon after midnight. Who would believe that place could ever be comfortably and impressively empty? According to the door staff, that was the intent. Selma Blair and Joy Bryant were among the small herd who trekked to the West Village hot spot for some peaceful partying. Perhaps scared of overcrowding again, Del Toro found himself in a sanctioned-off nook near the front of the joint, with a strict guest list policy (just when you thought getting in the place was hard enough). But he had a system set up for people asking to bring in friends. “Are they pretty?” he’d question. Hey, if it’s going to get crowded, there might as well be some eye candy.

Miu Miu’s Decade-Plus of It Faces


Miu Miu opens its doors tomorrow on 57th Street, in Jil Sander’s old digs, with a nearly 5000 square-foot space over three floors dedicated to the label’s sweet-yet-subversive wares. But it’s a sneak preview of images that will be on display on the store’s third floor that may really get the Miu Miu-philes going—and remind them why they love the don’t-call-it-secondary line ever so much. The gallery features morphed photographs from the label’s past campaigns—also seen at the Spring 2009 show—an exclusive group dripping with It-ness that includes Selma Blair, Lou Doillon, Kirsten Dunst, and Vanessa Paradis. It’s an excellent and educational walk down Miu-mory lane—and a reminder of why hunting for the name of the brand’s next face is one of the fashion fluent’s favorite sports. For your enjoyment, here’s a little blast from the past: Chloë Sevigny shot by Juergen Teller for Spring 1996, at left, and the morphed image at right.
