So. As you may or may not know, last Friday was the opening of OH WOW‘s Hollywood celebrating Terry Richardson show Terrywood. We were planning on covering the show but, in keeping with all things Uncle Terry, the show was a scene and kind of a beautiful mess so, you know, we decided to drive by and then get dinner at Terroni instead of actually seeing the show.
Three or four blocks in every direction, there were cool people and wannabe-cool people and regular people swarming to the show. Traffic was jammed in all directions as everyone was in the streets, jaywalking and just plain walking in the street. Rows of cars full of Uncle Terry grade celebrities showed up, their red carpet being the line between slow moving cars and parked cars. As we moseyed on by in our black 2001 Volkswagen New Beetle, we did get a pretty great celebrity sighting–can you tell who they are?
Why, it’s blurry musician Sky Ferreira–she’s the little, young blonde to the left–and even blurrier fashion designer Jeremy Scott, who has the palm tree of hair on his head to the right. It was a pretty good sighting considering we were just expecting to see a bunch of fur wearing girls in mini skirts and guys with super skinny jeans and t-shirts as we passed. Nope: those two celebrities walked right into our view, practically close enough to touch.
The line to the show went on forever and as it took us twenty minutes just to pass by we were like, “Fuck this: who wants dinner?!” and went to dinner. We’ll be stopping by the show tomorrow and will share how it is in the afternoon.
