When I got a last-minute invitation to a screening of Tom Ford’s feature-film debut, A Single Man, I assumed I’d be trudging into Leicester Square on a Friday night with a troop of other grumpy journalists. To say the least, it was a pleasant surprise to take my seat in a Ford cheering section at the Vue theater among Stella McCartney, Lisa Eisner, Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, Tim Jefferies, Richard Buckley, and the handsome designer-turned-director himself. Also in attendance were the stars of the film: Colin Firth, Matthew Goode, and Nicholas Hoult, a group which Firth himself pointed out was “quite the handsome cast.” (Julianne Moore and Ginnifer Goodwin also appear in the film, but weren’t at the screening.)

Renzo Rosso confirms Martin Margiela has left his eponymous Maison. While this has been suspected for some time, Rosso cleared things up. “Martin has not been there for a long time. He is here but not here.” Ah, now we get it. [Vogue U.K.]

Fashion’s new favorite boîte is getting a name change: Henceforth, the Boom Boom Room shall be known as QT. “We didn’t realize how many Boom Boom Rooms were out there,” a hotel insider admitted. Good to know. [Page Six]
Stella McCartney declares fashion people “heartless,” thus alarming her publicist, but she really believes it. Why else would they “boil” and “electrocute” things for us to wear? Understandably, these statements do nothing to mollify her publicist. [Guardian U.K.]
Editors attending shows at the Carrousel du Louvre should be sure to stop by the museum’s new restaurant: McDonald’s. If they want to commit social suicide, that is. [NY Daily News]
Immediately following the Burberry spectacle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler, loyal besties that they are, decamped to Alasdhair Willis’ Established & Sons show in London’s tony St. James. (Mr. Willis is, of course, Mr. Stella McCartney.) A sort of furniture curator, Willis seeks out forward-thinking designers whose work he then exhibits under the auspices of his company. Trust us, this is no Pottery Barn. It’s actually not much more expensive, but miles more enlightened. A highlight of the night’s exhibition was Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s Quilt. Let’s put it this way: Remember that favorite quilted down coat that you pulled out when it was really, really cold—partly for protection, partly for comfort, and a little bit for fashion? This collection was the furniture equivalent. In essence: the best puffa sofa ever. What better way for Gwynnie, Liv, and the rest of the bunch to recover from a serious bout with a battalion of front-row flashes?
