Your favorite bearded Oscar winner was… Ben Afflek. His movie Argo took the night and won for best picture at the 2013 Oscars lastnight. And of course he hit the 85th Annual Academy Awards runway and show looking like the dapper man he is. If you have not had the pleasure of watching the movie Argo please get to it. In my opinion this was a well deserved Oscar win for the facially fashioned Ben and as you can see from the picture above he feels passionate about it.

ART AND DANCE PERFORMANCE TO CELEBRATE MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA WITH H&M IN NEW YORK
Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mena Suvari, Kanye West, Helena Christensen, Selma Blair, Alan Cumming and Chace Crawford were among the guests at a party last night in New York to celebrate H&M’s collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela. The unique event was held on multiple floors of 5 Beekman Street, a historical building in the city’s financial district. Guests were able to discover the collection in dance performances by noted choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and through specially commissioned art installations. Afterward, DJ’s kept the party going into the early hours of the next morning. The Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection will be launched on November 15th in approximately 230 H&M stores worldwide.
“We are happy to present the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection in New York at this event. Maison Martin Margiela believes in showing its work outside traditional contexts. This mix of art installation and performance captured the spirit of the house and allowed the artists to interpret the collaboration collection in the ways they each found most fitting.” Maison Martin Margiela.
“Tonight’s party has been such an exciting evening, full of surprises. In every room, on every floor, you never knew what you were going to find. The installations showed the Maison Martin Margiela collection with H&M in the most creative and original way, and we believe our customers will really appreciate this collection,” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor at H&M.
The abandoned nine-story building, with its spectacular glass-roofed atrium and decorated in the label’s signature white-painted style, was the perfect setting for the celebration of Maison Martin Margiela with H&M. The famed choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker created unique and beautiful performances in squares of sand which took place throughout the evening on different floors. Anne Teresa and her dancers wore garments from the collection that they removed while performing, thus creating live and spontaneous art installations.
The collection with H&M, a series of re-editions of Maison Martin Margiela garments and accessories from various seasons, was further revealed in special art installations on various floors: artists Daniel Arsham, Frederique Chauveaux and Noemie Goudal created sculptures, projections and photographs exclusively for the event.
“It’s an amazing collaboration! Margiela is a beautiful brand — arty, iconoclastic and always edgy. And the quality is always amazing with H&M. Fashion is great because it’s an expression of who you are”, says Julianne Moore.
“It’s incredible, so exciting to celebrate one of my favorite designers. They are mysterious and compelling and I’ve been a great fan of Margiela for many years. H&M, well, look at the lines of men and women lined up! It’s a great opportunity for people to have access to great designers. It makes luxury available to everyone. It’s very democratic and I’m all for it”, says Sarah Jessica Parker.
“I’m a huge fan of Margiela and I love H&M — it’s a great collaboration. I never get surprised by H&M’s choices, every designer they pick I’m interested in. I’m always standing in the queue with my mother in the early mornings. I’ve been a fan of Margiela since the start”, says Helena Christensen.
“I’m here to see the lovely Margiela collection. I love the way H&M is doing collaborations with other designers. It’s a great thing, to make clothes stylish and affordable. The collaborations are a great idea, they are really amazing!” says Alan Cumming.
