Tom Ford makes his directorial debut in as understated a way as is possible for him. By which we mean Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and some other famous people will be starring in it.
Without Posh to keep him in line, David Beckham turns into an uncontrollable, lustful man with eyes only for hot pants-clad cheerleaders. What a cad.
Agyness Deyn is often heralded as Kate Moss‘ successor to the crown of quintessential British coolness. But New York-based artist Katherine Bernhardt isn’t fully buying that. So in her first U.K. show, at the new 10,000-square-foot Ransom gallery space in London’s Chelsea (kitty-corner from the new Saatchi Gallery), Bernhardt presents seven portraits of artist’s muse Ms. Moss alongside one of puckish, androgynous, punky Deyn, who’s portrayed as both Hermes, the god of trickery, and Caerus, whom the Ancient Greeks considered the personification of luck. In the Deyn, the Mosses, and the 60-odd portraits of Victoria Beckham, Shalom Harlow, Kanye West, M.I.A., and others, Bernhardt has a message to deliver: that star power is rawer, more feral, and more dangerous than it appears in the slickly polished celebrity imagery we see in the supermarket glossies.
What: Antonio Berardi‘s heel-less boots
Why: Gravity defiance and over-the-knee PVC make it hard to look away.
Who: Victoria Beckham, fashion’s resident wallflower and paparazzi shunner. We joke, we joke.
The verdict: Are Posh’s boots avant-garde, or so painfully weird-looking that you’d like to offer the poor girl a chair?
You decide. Comments welcome.
