Cannes Fugs and Fabs: The amfAR Gala


I was all het up about Cannes juror Nicole Kidman not being at this (or at that may other things), but it turns out she was, and just may not have done the red carpet. I’ve decided this is because she’s been holed up all day in a darkened room watching every Cannes movie and flossing popcorn out of her teeth.

Can you imagine how intimidating it  must have been to see Carine Roitfeld (formerly of French Vogue) show up at your fashion show wearing, essentially, a sleep mask?

I mean, THAT sends a message. Forget your sunglasses, Wintour. THIS is the power move. I look forward to seeing how Anna retaliates. Possibly by encasing herself in a tinted hyperbaric chamber.

I am so sad that Carine Roitfeld is stepping down as editrix of French Vogue, because there aren’t many people in this world who really wear that sassy “trix” suffix as well as she does.

But no worries — I am pretty sure there are some lost figure skating souls who desperately need a fairy godmother. Or an overlord. She’d work as both. Unretire, Johnny Weir! You two could make magic together. Preferably on Bravo.

Apparently, French Vogue celebrated its 90th birthday at Paris Fashion Week with a masquerade-themed party — well, I assume that was the idea, although perhaps it was just a stunning case of fashion groupthink that caused everyone to show up with masks on their faces. And Vogue royalty did not skimp on the drama. Here is Julia Reston-Roitfeld, daughter of the French Vogue editrix:

I’m unclear why she isn’t wearing her giant elaborate mask — perhaps fear of telltale zit trails tomorrow morning? — but really, when she’s togged up like this, a mask is beside the point. It’s a fusion of references we like to make, like Dynasty and ice skating and something about Lady Gaga. For instance, in Ice Dynasty, this is Alexis Carrington Colby’s costume for most of her important business dealings. Skater Oksana Baiul would probably wear this in the produce section, and indeed I suspect she already has. An Gaga? She’d turn up in this at the dentist.
However, Julia’s mother Carine — the mag’s top dog and presumed rival of Anna Wintour — kind of stole the show.

Carine Roitfeld, the editor of French Vogue, has always been positioned as Anna Wintour’s archrival. I have no idea if this is true. But I hope to God it is, because it makes this outfit a hundred times more entertaining for me:

When you swan into a party wearing that even WITHOUT the outer layer, it sends a message, but the addition of the cape elevates it from merely batshit to full-on evil-genius divinity. This woman is the High Priestess of Bitch I’m Coming For You And When I Do I Will Eat Caviar Off The Corpse Of Your Career. I would love to have seen Anna Wintour’s face when she first saw this, either in person or in a grainy cell-phone picture someone e-mailed to her with the subject line, “Vampira Alert.” Alas, I will never know. But I can imagine it looked like this:
