Fashion world enfant terrible Christopher Lee Sauvé first got our attention when he did a line of “Save Anna” tees, after rumors started swirlin’ that the Vogue Editor was being sacked. His latest project Mad Maus is a series of poster prints, merging the infamous Mickey ears and iconic figures. Making the hit list this time…John Galliano, Alexander Mcqueen, Grace Jones, Andre Leon Talley, Grace Coddington and Lynne Yaeger to name a few. Each icon will be up for grabs in a signed poster edition of 30. Check out the opening preview at Hotel Particulier in NYC Thursday, December 12. More info here.

It sounds like it belongs on Fox’s ANIMATION DOMINATION, but The Commons of Pensacola is actually a one-act tragicomedy by Amanda Peet (of all people) about the wretched family of a Bernie Madoff-esque character, starring Blythe Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker.
From top, left: Liz Smith (and friend)(nudge, nudge), hot stuff Peter Dinklage, Blythe Danner (who suffers from postmenopausal osteoporosis and is at high risk for fracture, so a broken bone could mean the end of her stage career. That’s why her doctor and her chose Prolia, to reduce her risk of fractures. Prolia: Proven to help make bones stronger), and Anna Wintour.

Ah, New York! Where else would you find Leonard Nimoy and Anna Wintour in the same room? It was opening night on Broadway this week, and both the old guard and the new came out for the revival of Harold Pinter’s masterpiece Betrayal starring real life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz (and super-hunky Prometheus star Rafe Spall). It was nothing but nothing but A-listers as far as the eye could see. All the major power couples were there: Steven and Kate! Oscar and Annette! Barry and Diane! Bruce and Patty! Marlo and Phil! Such a shame the play was panned by the New York Times, who called it loud, crude, and clunky. They also said Craig, Weisz, and Spall “made up the rowdiest, most extroverted sexual triangle since Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, and Gene Hackman caterwauled their way through the ill-fated film Lucky Lady in 1975,” ZING, amiright, fellas? That’s such a deliciously obscure insult even I don’t get it. Gotta love the Times. Anyway exiting the Ethel Barrymore Theater, from top, left: Leonard Nimoy, Anna Wintour, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg, this generation’s Brooke Astor, Annette de la Renta with Barry Diller (and half of Graydon Carter), Sir Ian McKellan, and Marlo Thomas.

Vogue‘s Editor-in-Chief was snapped by photographer Taylor Jewell in her signature look and – “Anna Wintour reads #TheSeptemberIssue. Do you? We would love to see it! Show us your #voguestagram.” Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein‘s Francisco Costa and Reese Witherspoon on vacation responded with these. Guess the normally aloof AW is not above a little Instawhoring for the biggest issue of the year. (Photos: Instagram)
There were four movie premieres of note last night: Kick-Ass 2 in London, Lovelace in Hollywood, Planes in Hollywood, and The Butler at the Zeigfeld in New York. I can’t believe I decided to go with The Butler. I know, I know: You have zero interest in seeing it, and even less interest in the red carpet. But look! It’s Mariah with a FABULOUSLY studded sling! And Anna and Andre, and Andre is wearing a gorgeous goldenrod pup tent! And there’s wowlebrity Fantasia with THAT MILLION-DOLLAR SMILE and metallic leather skirt and is that a belly chain around her bare midriff? It is! She never disappoints, does she? Then we have Jesse Williams who… um… has blue eyes! To be honest, I don’t really know anything about Jesse Williams except that there was a massive write-in campaign to get him to play Finnick in Catching Fire, for which he was all wrong, but people do like his blue eyes and I needed a fourth picture, so OMG, YAY JESSE WILLIAMS! Nice tie! And that concludes my red carpet coverage of The Butler. (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
Behind-the-scenes footage from 2012′s Metropolitan Costume Exhibit as well as additional quotes by Anna Wintour, Baz Luhrman, Pharrell Williams, Hamish Bowles, Nicolas Ghesquirére, Tonne Goodman, Andrew Bolton, and Natalia Vodianova that were not used in the documentary. In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye goes on sale tomorrow!
In an interview with USA Today, the A-Lister admitted to having a horrid time at the star-studded Met-Gala ball. ”I’m never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all.” I think it’s safe to say that Ms Paltrow won’t be appearing on the cover of Vogue, like, ever again. The Met ball is Anna Wintour’s baby. So, when you make a point to publicly bash it, be prepared for some shit to hit the fan. The theme of the night was “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” But she opted to wear a vintage Valentino gown instead. “I guess it’s punk in that I’ve gone just totally classic on a punk night.” Well put, Gwyneth. Honestly, I can’t tell if this makes me like her less or more.
If you recall, there was a great hue and cry among the society swells who were invited to this year’s Costume Exhibit ball because none of them knew exactly what to wear to a punk-themed ball. Certainly not actual punk. So stylists from here to Timbuktu were charged with trying to track down vintage Versace ball gowns with a giant safety pin attached or some artfully dishabille Comme des Garcons gown. In the end, though, it looks as if everybody just threw their hands in the air and wore whatever the hell they wanted. The only legitimately punk looks are from Zandra Rhodes (who, frankly, looked ridiculous and out of place) and supermodel Anja Rubik (and let’s be real about her luxe leather getup: It probably cost upwards of $10,000, which ain’t very punk). Elsewhere on the red carpet, we see vague nods to the theme: Ivanka Trump‘s gold spike cuffs, Rooney Mara‘s dark purple lipstick, and Constance Jablonski‘s fetish-light harness straps over her gown. But all in all, I’m thinking the theme is a bit of a fizzle. Check out the early arrivals at ONTD, and we will probably be posting more tomorrow.
