Ok so some of Marc Jacobs bags have been nothing but atrocious which will coincide with his laughable pigeon costume he wore at his own Venice Carnival-themed holiday party at Gotham Hall this past Wednesday. You have to give him props though, he did pick a humorous outfit that will make him and his incredulous beak memorable.
“Of course, I’m expecting misbehavior,” said Marc Jacobs at the start of his Venice Carnival-themed holiday party at Gotham Hall on Wednesday. “But,” he added, pointing to his pigeon suit, “I’m not sure how I’ll do wearing this.” The designer wasn’t the only one with wardrobe restrictions. “It took three gay men to get me dressed tonight,” said Dr. Lisa Airan, alluding to the corset of her turquoise ball gown. “I can barely move but I can’t sit down either.” Airan spent the evening standing on the sidelines with Rachel Roy, Damon Dash, and her pal and co-dresser Gilles Mendel, who sported a white Phantom of the Opera-inspired half-mask. “Everybody else has those beak nose things on,” said Mendel. “I’m trying to hide my long nose.”
Marc should have opted to carry around his very own design, the Marc Jacobs Python Stam which would be the only time and place I can see this fugly rendition not being yakked on in public. Jade green leather trim, turquoise python, and ‘patent covered weave’ make this bag truly a messy force to be reckoned with. ($1021 via Browns)

Dolled up with face paint, platinum wigs, and corsets, the rest of the crowd took their cue from the writhing dance performers””many of whom sported little more than breast paint and shiny, skimpy briefs””and spent all night on the dance floor. As they finished the final twirls of a classic waltz, white feathers rained down from the ceiling in a sight that Airan called “heavenly.” The word didn’t quite fit the rest of the evening, however. “Decadence is more like it,” declared Robert Duffy. “All this and I saw something naughty happen between a girl and a boy from two of our stores in the restrooms.”
As the glitter fell over Gotham Hall, Milla Jovovich was busy celebrating a little shimmer of her own at her 31st birthday party at the Gramercy Park Hotel. To mark the occasion, Vogue and the jewelry company TachÃ© presented the Jovovich-Hawk designer with a three-diamond right-hand ring and sprinkled crystals over everything from the floral arrangements to the chocolate mousse. Friends Carmen Hawk, Harvey Weinstein, Georgina Chapman, and Amy Smart were on hand to help her celebrate. “The dance floor is finally picking up,” said the birthday girl when Jauretsi Saizarbitoria started spinning hits around 11 o’clock. “Everyone’s been chatty-chatty, but now it’s time to dance!”
