Why is it that the rest of us look frumpy and dumpy when we arrive at an airport, and Victoria Beckham has on the very best in pajama dressing. Have no idea how the photogs know they are coming, but someone sent me this shot of the divine VB. She so happens to be wearing shoes by Casadei at LAX on March 28 it is the the iconic “Blade” pump in tan leather with black trim.
First of all, Michelle Williams does her own shopping, unlike George Bush Sr. when he was in office. And how does she tune out the world? Was looking for a pair of headphones for my son and then I spotted Michelle Williams in Urbanears Plattan. They’re $59.90 on their website. I figure if they’re good enough for Williams, my son can make do. . .right?
Mary-Kate Olsen leaves the Greenwich hotel in custom Earnest Sewn Jeans. Gee, they do seem to fit rather beautifully, but are the slits at the knees also a custom cut? Just asking. To inquire about your own Sewn . . . http://www.earnestsewn.com/
In the eternal debate whether fashion companies should use supermodels or celebrities, Beyonce just put an end to the argument. H&M must have paid a packet to get B to shill their short shorts, but here she is in an ad for their summer line and she has put Gisele, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Daria, Magdalena and all the new models to shame. The ad not only promotes her Mrs. Carter tour, but even makes me want to run over to H&M to shop. WOW!
Dateline Ft. Lauderdale: Shaquille O’Neal’s table at Cafe Martorano basically ordered the left side of the menu. . . fried chicken, Philly cheese steak, bucatini carbonara, veal Sinatra, and red velvet cake. Meanwhile Olympic eater Michael Phelps and famed electro-house music spinner DJ Steve Aoiki (table for 15!) downed shrimp scampi, Linguine and clams, NY strip streak, and chocolate cake. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte also recently hit the big boite. Both Shaq and Phelps tried the popular meatball recipe of owner Steve Martorano (he’s in the group shot). I must be the last to notice Shaq’s sleeve–that’s a lot of tat!
I’m melting. . . . Alessandra Ambrosio sure makes the Mattel “Save Bunny” t-shirt look sexy. And her pooch is cute, too. Mattel’s “cause” is to save the Easter Bunny from global warming by, ahem, giving toys instead. Good for kids teeth in any case. . . Proof that the Victoria Secret supermodel could basically make anything look sensational. ..
I’m so jealous. We had super elegant, tiny passed hors d’oeuvres at the Olympus Has Fallen Premiere in NYC. And on Monday at Lure in LA, they were served FAT BURGERS! In the house: Gerard Butler, Matt Damon, Aaron Eckhart, Danny Masterson, Wilmer Valderrama, Morgan Freeman, and Ashley Judd. Aaron Eckhart and Danny Masterson were spotted tucking into the burgers. Damon and his wife chilled with Butler.
New York Observer 25th Anniversary fete tonight was a classic New York soiree at the pool room at the Four Seasons (Restaurant, building Mies Van der Rohe, room Philip Johnson). Donald Trump, Mayor Bloomberg, Katie Holmes and she chatted with press and was really, really fun and nice, and Tom Hooper, Harvey Weinstein, Rupert Murdoch and Wendy Deng, Jay McInerney. I looked over and Donald and Melania were sitting in a corner chatting with Katie Couric. So elegant. And Mr. Trump was telling me how proud he is of this generation taking over the hooplah–Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner owns Observer. The mayor spoke as if everyone was family. .. it was a room packed with charmed and charming people. Everyone thought that it was a throwback (to a more golden era). Kudos Peggy Siegal. .
