Only for Hedi Slimane is it par for the course to dress a Rolling Stone. The designer—who opened the doors to Saint Laurent’s swanky new Avenue Montaigne flagship today—has created Keith Richards’ onstage duds for the Stones’ 50 Years and Counting tour. Considering the designer’s musical ties (most recently, he created Daft Punk’s helmeted Coachella costumes, his pals include Sky Ferreira and Alison Mosshart, and, of course, his latest ad campaigns feature the likes of Beck, Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson), and the fact that he dressed the Stones while at Dior Homme, Slimane was, perhaps, the obvious choice for Richards (front man Mick Jagger, however, turned to girlfriend L’Wren Scott for his looks). The rocker’s ensemble will consist of silk scarves, T-shirts, a vest, and a café racer jacket. The latter—aptly named the Keith jacket—will be available for a mere $4,850 as part of the forthcoming Saint Laurent Stage Wear by Hedi Slimane collection, which will hit stores in June. Not surprisingly, Saint Laurent reports that Slimane has more sartorial stage projects in the pipeline.
In recent years, a new designer documentary has sprung each spring. Ultrasuede, a Halston profile, premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and Matt Tyrnauer unveiled The Last Emperor, his extended close-up on Valentino, the spring before.
Last night, at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of L’Amour Fou, Yves Saint Laurent had his turn. Director Pierre Thoretton tenderly revisits the relationship between the late designer and his life and business partner, Pierre Bergé (above), and ends on the Christie’s sale of their blockbuster art collection. Thoretton takes a more somber and meditative approach than his predecessors in the genre, with the unloading of the couple’s prize possessions functioning as a sort of final chapter in their love affair. “I don’t believe in souls,” Bergé says in the film.
After the credits rolled, Olivier Theyskens and Sky Ferreira stood reflectively on the sidewalk outside, Googling the subjects’ birth dates. Alec Baldwin, quasi-disguised in thick-frame glasses, was in an intense conversation with Tyson director James Toback as he exited. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld made a hasty retreat. (You’ve got to love the Tribeca Film Festival mix.)
Also part of the post-screening crowd was Pat Cleveland, who wore her first YSL dress when she was 14 and modeled for Saint Laurent after first meeting him in Paris in 1970. She said that even if it wasn’t necessarily packed with surprises, the film had gotten the relationship right. “It was so out in the open, all of that—I mean the tenderness and the anger. Dealing with Pierre was always such a trip, because he was also so serious and so businesslike. But you understood the relationship.” L’Amour Fou, she added, doesn’t just represent Bergé’s side of the story, but “a chance to show his emotions. He doesn’t like to, basically, show that side of himself. He’s heartbroken. We all are.”

The house of Vuitton has access to just about every supe it could want for its ad campaigns—the latest stars Freja Beha Erichsen, Raquel Zimmermann, and Kristen McMenamy, and last season’s roped Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova—but for its fashion jewelry lookbook for Spring, the brand skipped the seasoned pros and went for friends instead. An international hodge-podge of It girls lent their services to the sixties pin-up inspired shots, including Alexandra Richards (above right), Rinko Kikuchi, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Sky Ferreira, and Nathalie Love. Of course, since these ladies are mostly part-time models, their full-time careers are listed, too—though, of course, they’re mainly of the It girl variety. There are actresses, TV announcers, DJs, singers, and even a “reporter and party girl,” but our favorite goes to Miss Mary Charteris (above left), modeling a pendant and necklace from the Cosmopolitan collection. Her job: “Aristocrat.”
