There are not that many people who inspire me, who I look up to fashion-wise, and [Tavi] is one of them...I think youthfulness really helps because it’s refreshing, compared to the old, bitter cranky people in the magazine world. A lot of these people live uptown, they do their work and go home. She’s eager and happy. I’m sure they’re envious. They’re probably cackling behind her back. But in the end, she has the last laugh.
Richie Rich (previously one half of the recently defunct Heatherette label) is due to show his latest A*Muse collection Wednesday. Unlike other designers who have had to squeeze their shows into tight time slots to fit in with Anna Wintour's hectic schedule, Rich has slated his show to work around men's figure-skating during the Olympic games. Strange as this might seem, Rich explains, "I was a figure skater, and lots of my fans are also huge fans of the sport, so I didn't want to make them choose between my show and the Games."
The forthcoming collection, according to Richie, is inspired by "the beach meets the streets. It's resort meets graffiti and break dancing - that kind of thing," and will see Pamela Anderson thrown into the mix, naturally. The ex-Baywatch babe will once again be taking to Rich's runway, though we're not too sure what she will be sporting considering the show is entitled "Hot for Teacher". We can, however, imagine that there will be several inches of Ms Anderson's tanned and taut skin on show.
Joining up with close friend Richie Rich, Pamela Anderson will launch her debut single 'High', and before any drug connotations spring to mind, it's about high fashion. "We are recording a pop single together," Rich confirms. "Pam says she wants to sing, but nothing too difficult, so she's just going to sing the word 'high' over and over."
Pammy will also model A*Muse, the clothing line that the pair are launching at Fashion Week in February, while ex Tommy Lee will spin on the decks. Looks like 2010 will be a busy year for the Baywatch babe...
Want to know what happens when a travelling art saleswoman falls in love with a screwy hotel manager who sends her a bottle of wine? So do Molly Sims, Milla Jovovich and Patrick Demarchelier, apparently.
The Cinema Society and Tommy Hilfiger hosted a screening of Jennifer Aniston's new film, 'Management', last night in New York - and no, if you're wondering, there was no Brangie drama. 'Management' premieres in the UK on May 29.
Well, I created Heatherette. It's not like working at McDonald's. I decided I didn't want to do it anymore, because the backers we had were basically a**holes. I love what I do, I'm an artist. It's like being in a band. If the lead singer gets f**ked over, you move on. I'm not mad at Traver, it's just that the people who backed us really weren't nice people. They took advantage of us in every respect.
The designer vents his true feelings to The Cut, when asked if Heatherette would make a return
