Waris Ahluwalia has been wearing makeup for about ten years, he told us last night at Chanel's Tribeca Film Festival Party at the Greenwich Hotel. "I'm only telling you this because it's New York Magazine, but I'm actually 68," he quipped (he's not, he's in his thirties). We asked if his friends would be into man makeup, like Jean Paul Gaultier's new male cosmetics line, Monsieur. "No, no. I stopped hanging out with the theater group a long time ago," he said. Oh, har! Ahluwalia also shuns the men-in-tight-pants trend. "I love trends," he said. "Doesn't mean I have to follow it." Other trends Ahluwalia dislikes include the overusage of words like "bespoke" and "luxury." "Everyone just calls things that. Bespoke olive oil?" he said. "I saw an ad in Wired for the new Acura. That ad was four lines, and they said 'luxury' fives times."
Christy Turlington, on the other hand, would rather see men wear makeup than get plastic surgery. "Men's plastic surgery seems to be a growing thing. I see it everywhere. It's freaky! I'd rather see a man — I got my own husband, mind you — in makeup," she said. So if she's down with man makeup, how about the proliferation of men in tight pants and women's jeans? "Oh, wow. Mine doesn't. My 2-year-old doesn't, and my husband doesn't. Not in my house," she replied. Thank God someone's keeping her 2-year-old out of the tight-pants section. The last thing we need are baby hipsters tripping us at Whole Foods.
Christy started modeling at 15, Miley Cyrus's age. Perhaps she could shed some light on Cyrus's controversial Vanity Fair photo shoot? "Is it the new issue?" she asked. No, silly. It's the June issue, and it's not out yet. She posed topless with a sheet. Any bells ringing? "A Britney Spears in the making? I haven't seen it, but it sounds like it," she said. Well, at least she didn't miss that one. "I have to say, I was working at that age, and I probably did stupid things like that," she added. "You don't know, people kind of coerce you — you think you're older than you are because you've been working for a long time, and I'm sure that's part of it." We still can't believe she didn't hear about this yesterday. — Blythe Sheldon
