The fashion world loves Karl Lagerfeld and Karl Lagerfeld, loves it back.
But it isn’t just the fashion world, cinema celebrities also turn up when Lagerfeld calls.
In the case of the Lagerfeld book launch on Wednesday night, Zoolander’s Owen Wilson and his two brothers, Luke and Andrew, turned up at a party cohosted by Karl Lagerfeld and Babeth Djian, editorial director and founder of Numéro magazine, at Paris’ Castel Club on Wednesday night.
The occasion was the release of a tome published by Steidl titled, “La Couture fait son Numéro,” edited by Eric Pfrunder, image director of Chanel. It contains a selection of couture series shot by Lagerfeld for the magazine over the last 15 years. Numéro owner Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers likened Lagerfeld to a modern-day Andy Warhol — “pop, cultivated and creative.
A roster of designers, including Clare Waight Keller, Haider Ackermann, Giambattista Valli, Viktor Horsting, Rolf Snoeren, Bouchra Jarrar and David Koma — as well as executives Delphine Arnault, Michael Burke and Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye — were in attendance.
Performing for the night’s event was the up-and-coming band Minuit, which was formed by children of the legendary French pop-rock group Les Rita Mitsouko.
The bright young things of French cinema — Marie-Ange Casta, Ana Girardot, Lou Lesage and Jessé Rémond Lacroix — were at the event including french actor and director Michaël Cohen whose said to have just wrapped up a commercial for Lancôme starring Alma Jodorowsky, and it seems is working on a new film “L’Invitation,” in which costars actor Nicolas Bedos. “It’s a buddy movie,” said Cohen. “Not really like ‘Zoolander,’ but more in line with [the films of] Judd Apatow.”
