Peggy Siegal: Cannes Diary 2012

An alternative version of this article will appear in the July issue of Avenue Magazine. Wednesday, May 16 I have hitched a night flight on Lisa Marie Falcone's G5 to Nice and arrive at Teterboro early enough to sneak three trunks filled with 10 Marchesa gowns onto her plane. Lisa arrives two hours later. She is making her maiden voyage to the 65th Cannes Film Festival as a producer of the hot film,Mud. She arrives with gargantuan Vuitton luggage that fills the fuselage. We are now part of 200,000 filmmakers, dealmakers, studio execs, stars, journalists, models, hookers and yachtsmen ready to see 22 films in competition and party till dawn for 12 days. Festival executives affected by the global financial crisis are delirious with numerous fashion houses acting as major underwriters and allow them to brand and control the press coverage on the red carpets, sometimes overshadowing the very films the festival is presenting. Sponsors who control the after parties a ...

Tom Murro: Celebrities Hobnob at the Tribeca Vanity Fair Party
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Last Tuesday, April 17, I had the privilege of attending the highly coveted and nearly impossible to get into, Deluxe Vanity Fair Tribeca party hosted by Graydon Carter, Robert De Niro, and Ronald Perelman on the rotunda of the State Courthouse on Center Street in New York City. Vanity Fair certainly knows how to celebrate in the most cultured and sophisticated way possible. Lots of real celebrity types, beautiful weather, top shelf bar, lime meringue tarts, smoked salmon cones, passed duck, paté, crispy avocado mousse rolls, chilled mint-pea soup, something with boiled eggs and many other unusual hors d'oeuvres, all prepared by Chef Thomas Keller for a smorgasbord of high powered notables. As I smiled my way up the massive courthouse steps that were covered in a field of neon L.E.D globes on a stick, I exchanged hellos with my female celebrity hobnobbing counterpart, Cindy Adams, there with Judith Sheindlin, aka Judge Judy, and her always pleasant husband Jerry. ...

All images via Patrick McMullan. Dakota Fanning because child actors always rock. A judge at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. I never received my hand engraved invitation to last night’s soiree for Vanity Fair’s Tribeca Film Festival Party at downtown Manhattan’s State Supreme Court, as heralded by actor Robert de Niro, nevertheless I’ve taken liberty to go to their website and fornicate alongside you at what we missed out last night. Shall we then? As VF carefully explain, 2012 marks the 11th season amongst ‘friends,’ (oh isn’t that a touching way to describe Hollywood insiders?!) where guests ‘noshed’ (their word not mine) on yummies courtesy of Thomas Keller of Per Se fame, and washed down with lots of champagne. Well that been the case, let’s all grab our paper cup of moonshine and drool at what the world of important people and good taste looks like. We might come to learn a few things, but I am betting we wont. Then again, we can all be infinitely jealous that you we ...

A Sexy-Hot Michelle Obama Joins The Rich & Famous At Obama Victory Fund Event
Glitterazzi - almost 5 years
First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted looking hot -- and as fabulous as ever -- at a fundraiser for President Obama this week. Robert De Niro, who hosted the event, introduced FLOTUS, stating that he doesn't think the USA is ready for "a white first lady" (a comment which has already ruffled a few feathers.). Bad jokes aside, we loved that Robert's wife, Grace Hightower, called Michelle a "stunner," adding that "even Republicans can agree with that." Beyonce Knowles was among the attendess, along with her mother and sister, Tina and Solange Knowles. Star Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Stiller, and longtime Obama supporter Harvey Weinstein were also in attendance. The FLOTUS was, as always, cheered on by raucous cheers and applause, proving once again that she is just as beloved as the POTUS.     In other news ...The First Lady also made an appearance at a bowling event, where she told the kids in attendance that her husband has worked hard for a world in which everyo ...
