Last night in the 798 Art district of Beijing, a famous french Papparazzi, Jean Pigozzi was celebrated at UCCA in a big retrospective of his work.

The black and white images of his famous friends were set against a very red backdrop reminding us of his professional life spent on the red carpet.  Some were papparazzi shots, others were more his private images and personal recollection of his jet-set times and parties with the rich and famous. These were old school cool and bear witness of times vanished with access pass and ‘real’ cameras in starch contrast with the hundreds of shots taken last night with iPhones and other digital toys (present company included).

A FASHION HISTORY moment recorded: When Calvin Klein met Kate Moss. In 1994,he signed her as the face of CK One and made the 90’s Supermodels obsolete under one minute. Kate became an instant Fashion Icon.

Wonderful Elizabeth Taylor probably in Cannes.

Jerry Hall playing with Mad Cash in Paris. (notice the original Chanel clipped under her arms…)

Pigozzi  actually clocked quite a lot of Selfies before it was even a word…

« Selfie-Time » Jean Pigozzi here sandwiched between Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger.

We all did this last night, but i was there first…

Yves Saint Laurent, Mick Jagger, Kate Moss, Diane von Furstenberg, Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth Taylor, Keith Richards, Andy Warhol, Isabelle Adjani, Mohammed Ali… All the western fashion and movies icons of the 80’s and 90’s were laughing, partying and winking at us from the walls.

One can suspect that elegant and chic Cate Blanchett had had quite a few drinks when he snapped that shot…

Chen Man…Beautiful and talented. I did not know her last night,  Wish I had, I would have told her how much I admire her work… (www.chenmaner.com)

The sexy triplets actors/models Liu Zhi Fu, Liu Zhi Man and Liu Zhi Tang gave interviews all night/

Except for the lovely Angelica Cheung, everyone last night seemed to have received a subliminal order from a mysterious fairy that whispered in their ears… ‘It’s all about RED »…

Everywhere I looked everyone seemed to be sporting something red: lipstick, coat, shoes, dress…
