HERE COMES TROUBLE: Friends of Agnès Trouble — better known as agnès b., gathered at the designer’s Paris headquarters last week to see her be awarded the Legion of Honor, the highest decoration in France, presented by Stéphane Hessel.
Among the crowd, that whooped and whistled in support, British actor Benjamin Northover marveled at her generosity. “What’s so magic about Agnès is that she carries so many people, she manages to be involved in so many things and be so completely present; she works so hard but also knows how to play,” said Northover who is filming “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.” “I play a baddie, but that’s all I’m saying,” he said.
“She’s always supported me through thick and thin,” echoed fashion photographer Steve Hiett, who has photographed agnès b.’s beauty line for the past 23 years. Hiett revealed he’s working on the design of an Assouline tome about the life of Vidal Sassoon. The book is due out this fall, in time for the release of a documentary about the legendary hairdresser’s life, he said.
