Advance notice!

Christian Louboutin & Oprah Winfrey

Getting your fashion-obsessed friends in New York (and/or the rest of America) to record an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show isn’t a usual “must-do”, but with a special episode featuring shoe-designer Christian Louboutin to be aired on January 18th, you will want to start lining up those friends and their DVD players. Or if you’re super organised you can slingbox it. Either way, notice has been given: Oprah! Christian Louboutin! A mini-film of Christian in Paris! January 18th! Ooh la la!

All aboard!

Paris croisière, Quai Henri-IV

If you happen to know why 93, Faubourg Saint-Honoré is a cherished address in Paris (and quite possibly one my favourite talk shows of all time!!) you will love the next generation: Paris Croisière! Aboard “l’Excellence”, moored at the Quai Henri-IV, this new version of the “people”-heavy dinner party/talk show format will feature a different host each week (goodbye Thierry Ardisson, we’ll miss you!) and kicks off a first season with Jamel Debbouze, Laurent Gerra, and Philippe Torreton.

Paris Première, diffusion ce soir à 22h35.

Krazy for Karl

Karl Lagerfeld and Valentino

Having recently told press he could never think of retiring like Valentino (“Fashion is about today and tomorrow, not about yesterday. If you have to be taken seriously because you have a heavy past, I don’t think it’s a good thing. I don’t want to remember, I want to do things and go ahead.”) the Karl Lagerfeld machine keeps pumping: Rodolphe Marconi’s “Karl Lagerfeld Confidentiel” hits theatres on Oct. 10th, and Lagerfeld himself will be the guest Editor-in-Chief of Paris Première programming on Oct. 12th (he has scheduled programmes like the Actors Studio with Johnny Depp; and movies like Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari). He edited October’s German Vogue supplement (including shoots with Claudia Schiffer in Deauville), and will also be shooting the upcoming Spring campaign for Dior Homme.

I was amused to see his appearance at the Playboy party this week, Lagerfeld shot the cover feature with 99 F actress Vahina Giocante. He descended into the paparazzi frenzied crowd with friends like Lady Amanda Harlech and Interview EIC Ingrid Sischy. It’s not every day you get to see Playboy bunnies nestling on either side of Karl, and it did make me smile, but of course, it’s probably just another average day in the crazy life…
