Nicola Formichetti, Jason Schwartzman Play Arbiters for Opening Ceremony’s Best of 2011 List
To chime in on the various best-of roundups floating around the web, Opening Ceremony has put together a list of this year’s favorite movies, books, songs, fashion moments and more. A nice twist on their effort is that they asked a bunch of their famous friends to declare their picks, including Nicola Formichetti, Spike Jonze, Jason Schwartzman, and The Misshapes. They also tapped a few internet-famous people, too, like photoblogger Tommy Ton, who selected Belgian model Hanne Gaby (pictured) for best street style.
"Hanne Gaby is crazy, young, and silly. She uses clothes like a little girl playing dress-up," Ton tells OC. She has fun with style—it’s not the standard model-off-duty look. She’s the ideal muse for a designer, wearing head-to-toe looks right after the shows, but adding her own quirky touch."
For best movie, Jason Schwartzman picked Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and for best Lady Gaga look, Nicola Formichetti went for the Mugler leopard bodysuit that the pop star wore to the after-party for his first Mugler show in Paris. "We took the outfit straight off the runway, put her hair up, and styled it with the Mugler knee-high leather boots from ‘Born This Way,’ and a glass of champagne," Formichetti notes. "Her date made the outfit even more glamorous—it was me, of course!" See the full list here.
