Chanel Artist Dinner in Honor of the Tribeca Film Festival
The Odeon. April 24, 2012. By Darla Murray
Can you do a rhyme about Chanel?
“Whoa ... That was your rap, right there: ‘Whoa.’”
Are you hoping for some Chanel swag tonight?
“Does food count? I’m here to eat!”
What was your style like as a teenager?
“I had a proud mom who said, ‘You can’t wear anything that a normal teenage girl couldn’t buy.’ So that gave me really good values but not as exciting clothes.”
What’s the best Chanel swag you’ve gotten?
“I’ve gotten a few gowns and bags and shoes. Actually, I’m shooting a music video tomorrow, and they are outfitting me for that.”
You used to play hockey?
“Yeah, until I was 25. My dad was a pro, and that’s what I was going to do, but painting sure beats ducking slap shots.”
—ROBERT DE NIRO
What was your style like as a kid?
“I was a complete ragamuffin. I was always muddy and playing in sandpits, so I didn’t have much style.”
Why do models always say they used to be tomboys?
“I think it’s because we were all so tall and thin, so we didn’t have that feminine, girlie thing going on in high school and junior high. But I love getting dressed up now!”
Are you a big Chanel fan?
“I just feel really lucky to be invited here. But I didn’t get a plus-one, so I’ll probably be spending money on some Chanel for my girlfriend to make up for it.”
