The Thursday Reading List

Has it come to this? After last night’s posh Fishermen’s Ball in Manhattan (tickets start at $1,000 a pop), shameless recessionista guests pilfered the tulip centerpieces, using Earth Day as an excuse. (VF Daily)

Along the same vein, Billy Norwich says that Park Avenue ladies are going a bit darker — i.e. less Ruth-Madoff blonde — in order to project a more restrained image. (Wowowow)

In other news: The billionaire Peltz family in Bedford, NY is evidently the worst family in America to work for. Nelson’s wife, Claudia, made their butler clean a toilet seat four times in a row, and then fired him — on Easter Sunday! (CityFile)

There was a missed opportunity for a first lady fashion faceoff when Queen Rania didn’t accompany King Abdullah to DC. (Huff Po)

Whitney Port’s fashion collection: not nearly as embarassing as it coulda been. (The Cut)

Karl Lagerfeld revelations: he wears a ponytail because his hair is curly, and when he wakes up every morning he looks like a madman. He also dismisses Heidi Klum as “an advertising PR person.” (Fashionologie)

And those (like us) who care, Kate Moss will be wearing a turban to the upcoming Met Costume gala. (Fashionista)
