C.Z., Harry and Cornelia will also attend the Vanity Fair party at Morton’s — the better to observe the stars and the local talent whilst quaffing Veuve Clicquot. Then on Monday, the ace photographer Bruce Weber will film C.Z.’s appearance at Neiman Marcus, where she’ll be talking about gardening, fashion and style for the documentary Bruce has been making on her life. On Tuesday, Wendy Stark, of the social swim, will give a little dinner in C.Z.’s honor at her Beverly Hills place. Among the pals expected are Nancy Reagan and Betsy Bloomingdale. Then it’s back to her Long Island estate in Old Westbury to help her fabulous garden grow.
You’ve already heard that this year the Oscars won’t have to suffer from limo gridlock. Jennifer Lopez, Renée Zellweger, Nicole Kidman and Catherine Zeta-Jones have all requested black Cadillac Escalades with tinted windows to arrive at the ceremony as quietly as possible. Cadillac is supplying 350 cars to the presenters, nominees and VIPs. Does that mean you won’t be able to tell one from the other?
Angelina Jolie needs a new dress. The body-hugging red corset number decorated with cherubs created by British designer Scott Henshall that she had planned to wear to the Oscars before she canceled, has been stolen in London. On his way to the airport for his flight to Los Angeles, Henshall stopped for some last-minute shopping, and while he was parked outside the store, thieves slashed the top of his BMW convertible and made off with Angelina’s $4,500 dress and 20 others. Although he would offer a cash reward to anyone who would return them, there’s no way he can remake Angelina’s or any of the other dresses in time. Scotland Yard is investigating. Too bad, but Angelina would probably have wanted to rethink that dress anyhow — unless she is contemplating making like Betty Davis in "Jezebel."
