Fun fact: Carine Roitfeld's boy spawn, Vladimir, is showing an exhibit of his work during New York Fashion Week next month. No word on exactly where or when the ex-model's presenting his work yet, but the budding photographer is showing during Fashion Week, so maybe we can expect tons of photos of his ex, Lily D? Guess we'll see. Update: Actually, we got it wrong. It looks like Vladimir is just curating the photography exhibit (as in, they're not actually his photos) in conjunction with Louis Vuitton (not LVMH) on Feb 17th to show the work of three photographers: Salim Langatta, PC Valmorbida and David Mushegain. A portion of the proceeds from the limited edition prints will go to benefit AMFAR.
Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld and More Turn Out for the New York Opening of Chanel's 'Little Black Jacket' Exhibit
When Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld are behind an event, everyone in fashion shows up looking as effortlessly chic as possible. And that's exactly what happened at last night's New York opening of "The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld." Neither rain nor the treacherous cobblestones outside of 18 Wooster Street, where the exhibit is located, could stop celebs like Mad Men's Jessica Paré (who seems to be fashion's favorite new celeb), Lily Collins and Pharrell Williams; too many models to count (but including Joan Smalls, Crystal Renn, and Dree Hemingway); and of course, Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld from turning out. The exhibit, which already touched down in Tokyo, features photos from the book of the same name, in which Carine Roitfeld styled and Karl Lagerfeld photographed models, muses and celebrities wearing Chanel's iconic little black jacket. For the New York exhibit, the photos (113 of them) are displayed in black and white covering one enormous wall, and blown up in color on the opposite one. So basically everywhere you turn, there's a compelling, gorgeous photograph of some beautiful famous person wearing a Chanel jacket in way you never expected. It's impossible not to play pick your favorite (Uma Thurman, Anna Wintour, and Sofia Coppola were among mine).
