New York City's Beatrice Inn has been closed again since 2006. The police came by at 2am and cleared everyone out. Many reasons include, over crowding, drugs, and the fact that the owners, Matt Abramcyk and Paul Sevigny, owed the city $23,000 for construction violations. Supposedly there is going to be a "Free Beatrice" party going on some time this week. So for those of you who "like to sit in the dark basement and feel cool and fucked up" be my guest.
The new Chanel movie, Coco Avant Chanel starring Audrey Tautou, has been released! The world premeire was at the Champs-Elysees theater on April 6, 2009. It is open to the rest of France on April 22! Unfortunately no dates have been set for the states. The entire film is based on the book, L'irreguliere by Edmonde Charles-Roux. It is filmed in Paris and in Normandy. A few original Chanel dresses are going to be featured throughout the movie. Catherine Leterrier is the designer to the rest of the costumes, with Karl Lagerfeld overseeing and approving everything.

This is Michelle Obama at a dinner in Baden-Baden with my favorite couple, the Sarkozy's. She is wearing an Alaia, a totally important designer. Alaia sold the dress to Ikram, the Chicago store that has been supplying Mrs. Obama with most of her clothes and accessories.
If you have not seen the new Valentino movie that is out in theaters right now I highly suggest you go and see it if you are interested in fashion in the slightest. It has received awards from every imaginable film festival. Anne Hathaway sat next to him at the New York premiere and he spilled his red wine all over her white dress. Isn't that adorable? I love him.
