FBLA Goes to the Party: Schnabel at Gagosian

SchnabelGagosian1.jpg

Julian Schnabel’s paintings of bones (used in the credit sequence of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) are on view at Gagosian Gallery, with a preview party last night. Schnabel’s at work on his next film, because he evidently needs no sleep.

Tilda Swinton, Lauren Hutton, Ben Silverman, the Weinsteins, Brett Ratner, and Diane Keaton were sighted.

Fashion icon Lisa Eisner (she owns Sammy Davis Jr.’s wardrobe) and Nicky Hilton both looked great but not together, naturally.

We said hi to Roger Friedman but didn’t recognize David Carr from the NY Times. (We don’t seem to be the only ones.) Gabe Snyder took a smoke break with Schnabel, but we were too busy feeling inept.

We were just about to snap John Waters with our Speed Graphic camera disguised as a phone, when the official photog hissed at us to get out of his way. Waters told us he never watches The Wire, as it’s too depressing, and that he’s delighted for Patty Hearst and her show dog, but no, he’s not making a movie about dog shows.

Outside, the paparazzi were getting soaked.

Patty Hearst Wins with Bitch at Westminster

The NY Times blog, The Lede, seems to think Patty Hearst, heiress/kidnap victim, has been sitting on her ass in Connecticut since she got out of that prison cell, only to re-emerge at the Westminister Kennel Club show. Mike Nizza thinks she ditched taco night at the sorority to join the SLA and completely ignores her real come-back–Serial Mom, directed by the immortal/immoral John Waters:

The bitch above is Kathleen Turner. The canine version, Diva (real name: Shann’s Legally Blonde) won a ribbon for Best of Opposite Sex in the French bulldog competition, the runner-up prize. Don’t know if she’s wearing white shoes.

(Nizza’s not really a reporter, but boy can he code!)
