La noche de los Oscar, la mayor pasarela de moda del mundo

20 Febrero 2008, actualidad moda
Penélope Cruz en la última gala de los Oscar

• El año pasado Penélope Cruz cambió de diseñador en el último momento.

• Las estrellas devuelven la ropa que usan, salvo si ha sido confeccionada para ellas.

El gran circo del cine y de la moda se prepara para su gran noche. En la gala de los Premios Oscar, las mejores firmas de alta costura del mundo compiten por vestir a las grandes estrellas del mundo del celuloide. Los trajes se prestan y en algunos casos, se realizan especialmente para las actrices, como ocurrió en Cannes cuando le dieron la Palma de Oro a la mejor interpretación femenina a las seis protagonistas de la película Volver de Pedro Almodóvar.

Penélope Cruz vestía en esa ocasión un maravilloso Dior que pudo quedarse para siempre en su armario. Normalmente se devuelve, y siempre en perfectas condiciones, señala Gael Collet, jefa de prensa de Christian Dior.

El año pasado se montó un pequeño escándalo. Tras anunciar públicamente que vestiría de Dior, eligió en el último momento un soberbio vestido de Versace con amplia cola y escote palabra de honor.

Gael Collet resta importancia al hecho: "La gente llegó a llamarme para preguntarle si John Galliano iba a demandar a Penélope. !Menudo disparate! Es surrealista. Si a todas nos asaltan dudas a la hora de vestirnos. ¿Cómo no les va a suceder a ellas? La relación con Pe es estupenda. Hemos seguido colaborando con ella".

It's Time to Lose the Embellished Jeans

20 Enero 2008, fashion news
An unusual wash is one thing. Denim embroidered like a throw pillow is another.
-By Katherine Wheelock

How do you take your denim? Defend bedazzled jeans—or stand up for basic blues—in the comment section below.


The torn knees, the bleached thighs, even the girlishly embroidered back pockets—those could have been predicted. But no one saw this coming: At the Country Music Awards a few years ago, the person in the most jaw-droppingly ornamented denim outfit—the country-western equivalent of Louis XIV's brocaded finest—wasn't Dolly Parton, it was Keith Urban. Granted, it was the Country Music Awards, where the red carpet isn't exactly a parade of Jil Sander minimalism, but Urban's clingy jeans, covered with doily-like embroidery, represented a tipping point.

The denim offensive, which began in the late nineties and, according to the 2006 book Jeans: A Cultural History of an American Icon, saw almost 800 brands on the market by 2004, seems to have broken down the barrier between men's and women's denim.

"Jeans were designed to be tough and rugged—the epitome of cool," says Scott Morrison, the founder of Earnest Sewn. "They're not supposed to emanate femininity."

Urban's dolled-up Wranglers were only the beginning of the bastardization. Criss Angel and Dave Navarro have since shown up for events wearing jeans more elaborately decorated than a third-grade girl's jazz-recital costume. Kevin Federline and Justin Timberlake haven't taken it that far, but they've flirted with the look, wearing jeans with appliquéd back pockets and airbrush-style bleaching.

"It's very L.A.," says Simon Miller, who started a line of men's jeans last year. "It's also kind of Dallas. Big hair, big heels, outrageous jeans. It's like when women try to outdo each other by wearing the most jewelry."

The men who made jeans an American icon wouldn't have been caught dead using denim fit for a Vegas showgirl to prove their potency. The laborers whom Levi's made the prototypical pair for in 1873. James Dean, who wore his out on the seat of a motorcycle. The Marlboro Man, whose jeans' only unnatural adornment was the worn spot from a pack of Reds. For guys like that, being a bad-ass wouldn't have involved wearing jeans adorned with embroidered Gothic crosses—getting tattoos of them would have been enough.

Follow the Rules: Jean Touitou

We’re not living in a very creative era. That’s not good or bad; it’s just the way it is. I think it’s in very bad taste to buy art right now. People should leave it to the hedge-fund owners who want to satisfy their wives. “Hey, I bought a Chinese avant-garde thing.” Good for you.

I think it’s very important to look sexy at home. I hate it when people say, “I will take this to the countryside because it’s not fashionable anymore.” I love being well-dressed when nobody’s looking at me.

At hotels, they always mess up the cleaning. They will do a crease when it’s not necessary. You give them a cotton shirt and they dry-clean it. It smells funny, so you have to rinse it again. So I travel light.

If you can tell a man’s sexuality by the way he dresses—like a “gay” uniform or a “macho” uniform—that’s disgusting.

Nowadays, people work out way too much, and they look like invaders from another planet. A guy who works out two hours a day—focusing on his chest because he thinks it’s sexy—you can’t dress him, even if you send him to the best designer or stylist in the world.

Finance men have money but no taste. They’ll say, “My wife thinks this tie looks good on me.” They don’t focus on what’s beautiful and what’s not beautiful—they leave it to women.

The rock star who uses a personal stylist to dress him should go to jail. If you’re doing rock and roll, you should know how to dress. You shouldn’t need to hire anybody.

Anybody can be a good guest for dinner. When it gets delicate is after one day. The worst guests are the people who come to your place and in the morning they say, “Okay, what do we do today?”

I once wore a pink, ruffled shirt for dinner, and I wish I had never done it. I thought it was funny, but I felt so bad in it I realized I don’t have the humor to deal with ugliness.

After you’re 35, it’s difficult to drink unless you’re running 10 miles a day. I’m not talking one dry martini every Saturday or something. I’m talking three dry martinis a night. And I don’t think that’s possible—it’s too much poisoning. It’s not a very sexy way to talk about drinking, but that’s the truth.
