Last night's secret LA screening of the new fashion documentary Versailles '73 at Soho House was quite the scene.  Raf Simons, Marisa Tomei, Camilla Staerk, Garcelle Beauvais, David Meister, Jennifer Tilly, Magda Berliner, Christa B. Allen, Kevan Hall, Tracee Ellis Ross, and JC Obando are just some of the bold names who were at the SRO screening.  As a matter of fact, an early bird screening was added by overwhelming demand.  The next top is Atlanta on 4 September.  A lot of the super models from the film that helped change the course of American fashion and broke the color barriers on the runway will be in attendance.  A few days after that, the show comes to NYC for a huge premiere and a theatrical run.

I keep blogging about designers who were part of the Big Ten invited to show in Versailles.  Hubert de Givenchy was one of the privileged few representing the French.  This 1970s goat fur coat of rust and black could have very well been designed around 1973 by Monsieur Givenchy.  Although many may think of Givenchy of the past as being purely Audrey Hepburn, he definitely channeled his inner rocker with this design that has a 1940s-meets-Marilyn Manson sensibility...something I can wrap my head around!  You don't need to be a goth chic or a glam rocker to wear this jacket.  It goes with everything.  Gowns, jeans, LBDs.  It will make your outfit!  Besides, my dream is to recreate the legendary Versailles fashion show next year with a crop of current designers, so start planning your outfits!
