PAPERBACK WRITER: Montblanc celebrated the launch of its John Lennon-edition writing instruments with an expansive blowout at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Sunday night. Susan Sarandon hosted the evening and Christina Aguilera sang a rendition of Lennon’s “Imagine” — with Linda Perry on piano — for attendees who included Harvey Weinstein, Helena Christensen, Emily Mortimer, Josh Groban, Gabrielle Union, Alan Cumming, Estelle and Sam Taylor-Wood. The Richemont-owned brand hosted similar events in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Mexico City and Berlin the same evening, with the latter connected to the New York soiree by a live video feed. Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, addressed the crowd from Berlin — where the six-hour time difference meant the Germans were slightly soused. “I am delighted that John is being recognized with these beautiful and unique writing instruments,” she noted. “He was a creative force who loved drawings and writings and the power of words and art, so I know this would mean a lot to him.” Part of the proceeds from the $920 fountain pen will go toward various children’s music-education programs.
