Karl Lagerfeld and Harvey Weinstein Are Making a Movie Together
Karl Lagerfeld and Harvey Weinstein are collaborating on an exciting new film project starring, wait for it, YOU. If you make the highest bid, anyway.
The two powerhouses are putting their services on the block at the for-charity auction at amfAR’s upcoming Cinema Against AIDS gala, according to Page Six. The winning bidder will get to star in a short film produced by Weinstein and directed by Lagerfeld --hopefully the latter will also help out with the wardrobe.
A month ago, we reported that Carine Roitfeld would be the subject of a new documentary directed by Fabien Constant, who helped create that awesome mini-doc for W about the ex-Vogue editor’s exploits during couture week. Naturally, we couldn't wait for more details to surface--and now they have.
According to Screen Daily, the new film will be called Mademoiselle C. and will be an "upbeat, fly-on-the-wall documentary" following Carine as she works on the launch of her new fashion magazine CR.
But it gets better:
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).
