Oh, the fabulousness of it all! I've been on an endless
round of glamorous events that just won't stop, and I've even
found time to patent my Jennifer LoPez Dispenser. Pull up her
head and out pops...oh, well, never mind.
Remember a few years ago when Jennifer appeared on
the Oscars, introduced as "The exciting and talented Jennifer
Lopez," and the entire world went, "Huh?" Well,
a few days later I found myself sitting near the excitement and
the talent of La Lopez at a Badgley Mischka fashion show. Mark
Badgley and James Mischka love glamour and I try to see all of
their runway events.
Here I am with Bernadette Peters at the Badgley Mischka
Spring 2000 show. Why doesn't Bernie bring her Tony with her?
Va-va-voomness on the Badgley Mischka catwalk! Jennifer
Lopez, eat your exciting and talented heart out. Or something.
Do you see The View's "sassy" Starr Jones
in the front row of Mark and James' show? Could you just die!!?
At the NY premiere of "Get Bruce!" I ran
into sweet Julianne Moore.
From there I dashed over to the party for Francois
Nars' fabulous photo book, X-Ray. The crush at the door included
my pal, fashion maven Andre Leon Talley.
The most glamourous woman in NY, Anne Slater, was
there, even though she's not in the book.
I was thrilled to see the photo of myself! Why am
I so self-absorbed? I must remember to ask my shrink.
I have several outfits just alike. This is the front
of The Plaza Hotel on the night of the big "Eloise"
launch. To read more about "Eloise," check out My Favorite
These are not wax figures -- it really is Joan Rivers
in the flesh with yours truly.
Another wild night started at the opening of the Bob
Mackie retrospective at the Fashion Institute in Manhattan. Here
I am in front of Carol Burnett's famous "Went With The Wind"
Mel Odom, creator of the "Gene" doll, and
The Daily Show's Frank DeCaro, who also wrote the text for the
beautiful book accompanying Bob's retrospective, were in attendance.
You can see some of the mannequins on display in the background.
Bob was there, of course, along with Liza May Minnelli
and the formidable Flotilla
I was told that the greatest gift I could give my
friend Marc Shaiman for his 40th birthday party would be to show
up as Joan Crawford. I humbly obliged. Can you say, "Bless
2 of Oscar's favorites.
Bob Mackie is all smiles. Could it be Joan's over-thetop
Broadway's Patti LuPone, Joan Crawford, and Hollywood
Gal About Town Alexis Del Lago.
The brilliantly talented Jan Hooks obliged to be photographed
with my maid.
