Marisa Berenson appeared on the August 27, 1973 issue of Newsweek as “Queen of ‘The Scene’”, offending Karl Lagerfeld and Loulou’s future husband Thadée Klossowski for, as Thadée put it, talking about gay men as if they were “pet poodles.” “I, for one, have become a big fan of homosexuals," Marisa announced to the magazine. "I adore them. They are talented, sensitive, refined people who make the best friends. I’d rather go out with a fag than a boring man any day.” Seconding Marisa, Betty Catroux found it “very frustrating for beautiful girls today to think of all the boys they’ll never touch.” Loulou had the last word: “I’ve become a fag moll, really. There’s nothing more fun than fags.” Ouch 😵🌈@marisaberensonofficial @newsweek @karllagerfeld #louloudelafalaise#thadeeklossowski#bettycatroux#marisaberenson#newsweek#karllagerfeld#palomapicasso#helmutberger#georgehamilton#halston#angiebowie#biancajagger#dianevonfurstenberg
No one knew Loulou like André Leon Talley. On Wednesday, May 2nd at 9 pm he joins LOULOU & YVES author Christopher Petkanas at the Jefferson Market Library NYC for the ultimate conversation about the couturier and his second self, free and open to the public. "The legendary LouLou de la Falaise and Thadee Klossowski... Paloma Picasso and Bianca Jagger... the late Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent... Baronne Guy de Rothschild, social queen of Paris! Read all about these sacred monsters in Christopher Petkanas['s] LouLou and Yves," André writes. "This book is an oral biography of Paris fashion between the glittering years when LouLou was the light between all the characters! It's a modern Balzac history! You will want to give the book and also read it. It soars! It roars! Petkanas has achieved in this book, a smash artistic hit... absorb[ing] you in the history of high fashion in the 70s." "The Gospel According to André," Kate Novack's long-anticipated documentary about André Leon Talley, is in theaters May 25. Our event: May 2nd, 9 pm, Jefferson Market Library, 425 6th Avenue (corner of West 10th Street), (212) 243-4334.

Ha. Talk about a blast from the past. Look what I found in my closet storage bin yesterday and decided to wear it today. An oldie but goodie. #palomapicasso. The it bag to have once a upon a time. I got a card case too in red. I wonder where my white leather bag went. Hmm someone must’ve borrowed it. Lv Wallet Chanel card case. Some things are just an investment.
