As you might recall, the increasingly crotchety 80-year-old designer recently got in hot water when he suggested homosexuals shouldn’t dress “too homosexual.” So thank goodness nobody came to the cocktail party at Nobu in Milan, honoring his 40th anniversary in the fashion biz, wearing a bedazzled leotard or sequin short-shorts. Even Boy George kept it relatively butch in a brown fedora and tasteful man-jewels (see below).
Among the stars who showed off their most elegant looks:
Glenn Close arrived looking a bit like Jessica Tandy, but still incredibly chic, of course.
Tina Turner wowed the crowd by not aging. Like EVER. The ’60s rock icon arrived with hubby Erwin Bach to much cheering and fanfare.
Sophia Loren, who always looks like the madame at an Eastern European brothel to me, was there, waving like she’s the queen of England. Whatever. NEXT.
Mrs Wissam Al Mana aka JANET FREAKIN JACKSON made a rare public appearance — her first since last November at a Vogue gala in Dubai. Fabulous, fabulous.
Tom Cruise, arrived with an escort on his arm who looked like a cross between former wives Mimi Rogers and Katie Holmes.
Legendary Italian superstar Claudia Cardinale – once the most beautiful woman IN THE WORLD, of course – still looks lovely.
And somebody named Antonia Dell’Atte won the red carpet with her purple hair and silver-feathered capelet. Malto magnifico! Bella! Bella!
