Corey Is In the House

-------

When done well, rebranding a fashion label is the equivalent of getting a great haircut—all of a sudden, the world seems so shiny and full of possibilities. Corey Lynn Calter recently gave her 13-year-old eponymous line such a makeover by trimming the name down to ‘Corey.’ Last night, the designer officially celebrated the launch with a presentation of her Fall collection at The Jane Hotel Ballroom. So, other than the name, what’s changed? Not much, according to the designer. Calter clarified that ‘Corey’ isn’t some kind of diffusion project. It’s the same edgy, feminine aesthetic at the same contemporary price point. “Everyone is down to 140 characters or less these days, so I figured, why not shorten up? I love having the freedom to still do what I want,” she told Style.com. Themed “Smoke & Flowers,” the latest lineup had a decidedly moodier, sexier vibe compared to past seasons, and Calter embraced the dark mood with a heady look book shot by Olivia Malone in New Orleans, which debuts here. “I was thinking about what you would wear if you were in an opium den,” Calter continued. Highlights included a leopard print tunic and matching cigarette pants, louche printed silk pajamas, and vampy lace shift dresses—all of which you could imagine Calter’s doe-eyed muse and collaborator Nora Zehetner, who hosted the event, rocking on her relatively laid-back days. Zehetner was joined by Tennessee Thomas, Shiva Rose, and Advanced Style’s Ilona Smithkin, who all came out to toast Corey.

Corey is available online at www.thisiscorey.com, and at other select retailers.

Despite Prop 37 not passing on the California ballot this past November—or perhaps because of it—Nina Clemente has made an impassioned appeal for the cause. The initiative that stipulated the mandatory labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in certain food inspired the chef’s latest undertaking, a three-night pop-up restaurant at The Standard in Hollywood, benefiting the Garden School Foundation. “It’s our right to know what’s going into the food we’re feeding ourselves and we’re feeding our children,” the chef said of the cause, which has paired her with like-minded real-food advocates and hosts Marisa Tomei, Adrian Grenier, Shiva Rose, and Peter Glatzer for the occasion.

Together with chef Michael Reed, Clemente has created a menu that relies heavily on local fruits and vegetables, making a concerted effort to reclaim real food and say no to GMOs. “The city is this incredible place, especially in January, to create this produce-heavy menu. It’s not getting flown in from Peru. It’s getting delivered to me from two miles away, up in Malibu.” The six-course meal begins with a tasting of locally sourced vegetables, moves on to a beet-cured hamachi crudo, a risotto with smoked local mushrooms, roasted local halibut with sunchoke soup, a New York strip steak with smoked eggplant, and a panna cotta with seasonal fruit finale. “The access to the year-round spectacular produce that we have is what drew me to L.A.—and what has kept me here.”

To get a taste of Nina Clemente’s GMO-free menu, visit the pop-up restaurant from January 29 to 31 at The Standard, Hollywood. Learn more at www.reclaimrealfood.com.

Cameron Silver’s Journey Through The World Of Chanel

-------

My typical response when receiving an invitation to an out-of-town party is “send a plane.” Amazingly enough, that’s exactly what Chanel did for the opening night of Numéros Privés: A Journey Through the World of Chanel at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday. The label chartered five planes from New York, six from Los Angeles (I was on a G4), and one from San Francisco, with a fleet of Escalades waiting to pick up the almost 200 VIPs—including Jessica Alba, Diane Kruger, Dree Hemingway, and Anouck Lepère—they invited for the grand affair this weekend.

“Nothing is more glamorous than being inside a Chanel pocketbook,” Rachel Zoe told me while we hung out in the Wynn’s leather-lined room—just one part of the ultimate luxe fun house, a temporary installation celebrating the iconic codes of Chanel. China Chow begged to differ. When I asked her what her favorite was, she asked, “Is that a rhetorical question? The couture room, of course,” she said. It was difficult to pick a personal favorite. Between the rooms with pearl curtains containing bejeweled bags and bijoux, the black lacquer room devoted to the J12, and the children’s room filled with Karl Lagerfeld-designed dolls and Le Petit Coco wallpaper, they were all pretty magnificent.

Alexa Chung deejayed during a Chinese New Year dinner of dim sum (where mostly just Champagne was consumed), and afterward came a killer rockabilly performance by Ireland’s Imelda May, who got Shiva Rose and Tierney Gearon swinging on the dance floor. Dancing wasn’t the main attraction, however. Everyone was focused on the Coco vending machine. Liz Goldwyn tried to get the claw to catch a leather cuff, but like most of us what she ended up with was a lipstick. That’s not nothing, and in that sense everyone seemed to get lucky in Vegas last night. I would feel more lucky, though, if Chanel would send me on a private plane to Paris. Couture starts Monday.

MaxMara Takes L.A., By Day And By Night

-------

MaxMara had its eye on the red carpet for last night’s Crystal Lucy Awards, where the brand presented Zoe Saldana with its Face of the Future Award, but the festivities began long before the sun set: On Tuesday afternoon, the label treated a few key L.A. ladies to a chic lunch benefiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Katherine Ross, gallerist Karyn Lovegrove, and MaxMara’s Nicola Gerber Maramotti hosted guests like Rachel Griffiths, Lisa Love, and Shiva Rose (all in MaxMara or Sportmax, of course) to an outdoor feast of striped bass and panna cotta at Lovegrove’s stunning Hancock Park estate; shut your eyes and you could believe you were in the Italian countryside. At least one guest soon would be—”We’re getting ready to go to Tuscany in two weeks, and hopefully I’ll be in Paris for couture,” reported Rosetta Getty (pictured, left, with Griffiths)—but when you call L.A. home, you don’t need to go far for fun in the sun. “After living here for four and a half years, I’m really enjoying all that Los Angeles has to offer,” said Ross, whose husband, Michael Govan, is LACMA’s popular director.
