Karim Zeriahen – Film at the French Embassy

My uber talented friend Karim Zeriahen, the brilliant documentary film maker, was in New York City recently for a screening of his latest film, “Meeting Albert” – an homage to the legendary film maker Albert Maysles, creator of such notable works as “Gimme Shelter” and of course one of my personal favorites, “Grey Gardens.”

Surprisingly the work of Maysles has gone relatively unnoticed in France, and so perhaps it was a bit of Franco-American diplomacy that finds the film maker receiving his due recognition at the French Embassy here in NYC. – Whatever the case may be, Zeriahen’s sensitive and probing treatment was a truly fitting tribute – one that Maysles’ himself expressed great appreciation for after the screening. Needless to say, I can’t wait for Zeriahen’s next project – a documentary on Hubert De Givenchy!

Celebrating my dear friend’s accomplishment at the French Embassy I’m wearing a pieced cognac suede jacket, purple feather weight cashmere turtleneck sweater, wool/cotton check pant in camel, browns and purple and a python belt with silver double horse head buckle, aubergine suede “Eton” boots by Yves Saint Laurent, peccary gloves by Gucci.

  10. Lola Montes says:

    Me encantan los documentales, yo también vi grey gardens y me fascinó, fue un trabajo maravilloso!

  11. Prince Michael the Second Ave says:

    Oh James. You’re truly a fashion artist. I don’t know how many have realized what you’ve done but I certainly do, you sly devil. You’ve created the theme of Albert Maysles and Grey Gardens then fashioned yourself as schizophrenic socialite. If I am to submit one complaint it’s that you weren’t holding flags and dancing in this pose as Edith Beale did in the movie. It’s brilliant!!! Bravo!!!

    – Prince Michael
