Wearing Ossie Clark for Marc Jacobs

Ten years ago tonight, I went to Marc Jacobs’s Spring 2007 runway show with MrB. As was my habit, I wore one of my vintage Ossie Clark dresses to Marc’s show.


Me and MrB at the Sept. 12, 2006, Marc Jacobs show.

The late New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham always attended the Marc Jacobs show, and Bill appreciated a good Ossie. Even if Bill didn’t take my picture, he often noticed my dress. He’d always ask, “Ossie Clark?” to be sure.

The very positive New York Times review of this show is here. It mentions attendees Lil’ Kim, Victoria Beckham, and Sofia Coppola. There’s a New York Magazine story about the after-party here.  As far as I recall, we weren’t invited to that, but we must have gone to the after-party in 2005, because I used to have this Lil’ Kim t-shirt, which probably came in a gift bag. I foolishly gave away that shirt a long time ago. Whyyyyyy?!?
