Welcome back darlings to Cognac's Corner Magazine.
My most recent Red Carpet Event was this past Friday in East Hampton
On Friday August 20th, 2011 Actor Alec Baldwin hosted the movie premiere of L'AMOUR FOU at Guild Hall in East Hampton as part of the Hamptons Film Festival. Celebrity guests included: Simon Doonan, Barneys New York Creative Ambassador-at-Large and Author, Fashion Icon and Cultural Critic Cintra Wilson.
The synopsis of the film involves the public life of Fashion Designer Yves Saint Laurent. The film explores the designers' extravagant and decadent lifestyle. Laurent was famous as a design prodigy and then the grand couturier of a fashion empire. His fashion vision influenced fifty years of style but few are familiar with the private life of this extraordinary legend. In Pierre Thoretton's L'AMOUR FOU, Pierre Bergé, the gentleman with which YSL shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this profound documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality whose personal life matched his public for elegance, extravagance and passion.
Until my next Red Carpet Event darlings,
