Just the Pics, Please: amfAR Gala

Tara Reid once said about Jessica Simpson: "I make her look like a rock scientist." We can't tell if Lindsay Lohan is channeling Tara, Jessica, or a rock, but here she is at the amfAR gala last night, in just her latest blonde moment. But you know, whatever brings attention to a good cause is fine with us. Others who made it out to Cipriani Wall Street to fete Fashion Week include Carine Roitfeld, Deborah Harry, Linda Evangelista, Heidi Klum, and Miss Universe Leila Lopes...

Just the Pics, Please: Prada's 24h Museum

Those who stayed in Paris through the men's shows, then stuck around through the couture collections, deserved a treat. And a treat they got with 24h Museum, a Prada-sponsored pop-up exhibit conceived by artist Francesco Vezzoli.

As promised in the title, the exhibit at the iconic Palais d’Iéna lasted exactly one day, beginning with light sculptures of pop divas in renaissance poses, followed by a private dinner, and ending—as everything good eventually does—with a disco. This was, however, no ordinary disco. And the DJ was no ordinary DJ, but—surprise!—Kate Moss, who cheerfully spun Madonna, Donna Summer, Grace Jones and other, well, pop divas.

Just the Pics, Please: Madonna's W.E. Premiere

In case you were wondering what Madonna would wear to the US premiere of W.E., wonder no more. She went big—as with her directorial debut—in a lacy, ruffled black Marchesa gown (it's a Weinstein film, remember). With shoulders out to here and a train back to there, it's a lot of dress—but then, she's not the Material Girl for nothing. She also wore it to the after-party at the Standard's Boom Boom Room, where Courtney Love's nipple made a surprise—not really—appearance. (Photos by Patrick McMullan)

Just the Pics, Please: Art Basel Miami

Once again, Art Basel Miami was a colorful blur of art and Art Deco, new works and old money, upcomers and beach-goers. Here, a snapshot by Patrick McMullan...

Karl Lagerfeld, Work in Progress

Just the Pics, Please

Work in Progress (Steidl)—a survey of Karl Lagerfeld’s photographic oeuvre, from his first dabbling with a camera in 1987 to his most recent, highly polished images—has finally been published in English, following the sold-out French version, Parcours de Travail, which accompanied an exhibition in Paris last year.

Observing Lagerfeld's photos together, in book form, it's clear to see his preoccupation with reinventing the work of other artists and writers, in particular Oskar Schlemmer, Fritz Lang, Lyonel Feininger and Alexej von Jawlensky—leading to experimentation with algraphy, serigraphy, resinotypes and sepia prints. Lagerfeld is nothing if not a visual scientist. Fashion designer, yes. Visual scientist, even more.

Yves Saint Laurent farewell show, photo Hedi Slimane

Just the Pics, Please

On his website, Hedi Slimane has posted some of the beautiful yet haunting images he took backstage at Yves Saint Laurent's epic farewell collection in 2002. Monsieur fastidiously checks garments, Pierre Bergé attentively watches the monitor, models nervously await their turn. It is a moment of celebration, but the tenseness is palpable.

Hedi's own time at YSL, designing men's, is the stuff of legend. "I just loved the traditional house," he recently told us, "with the original cast, the magic, warmth, authenticity, the beyond French "tragi-comedy" of it, and the Parisian grandeur of Avenue Marceau. There is nothing like it anywhere...Yves Saint Laurent was, as a couture house, the last true house. Magic." Read more of our exclusive interview with Hedi Slimane.
