We didn't notice that Times Styles section writer Eric Wilson had left us an extra-special present inside the Runway blog last week until just now. Apparently he was having lunch at the Mercer last week when he witnessed a dramatic exchange between John Galliano, who was wearing a "fabulously grommeted" beret and his fellow LMVH designer Marc Jacobs, whose hair is (fabulously?) blue. It was recently reported that Jacobs was overheard trash-talking Galliano at his gym, but he wasn't mean to him at all!
“Hi, John!” Mr. Jacobs exclaimed. “How are you doing?”
“Good, nice to see you,” Mr. Galliano said. “Oh, you’ve gone a little darker, I see.”
“Navy!” Mr. Jacobs said. “Na-vy.”
“Oh, that would be a little chicer,” Mr. Galliano said. “Indigo!”
“Well, if you ever feel like having tea or coffee, I’m sort of bedridden for a few days, so I can’t move far,” Mr. Jacobs said. “I had an operation.”
Just wanted to make sure you got a good look at what might well be the single greatest New York Post cover ever. "If Paris wasn't born, she would have to be invented," Andrea Peyser writes in her column. "If she did not form naturally, we'd have to build one of her." We can't tell if Peyser's "we" refers to American society, dismissively, or to the Post's circulation execs, appreciatively. Maybe a little of both?
(Also: Isn't that cover line effectively calling Peyser a bimbo? Fun!)
