John Galliano is set to play himself in a film based on the late Isabella Blow.
Legendary milliner, Philip Tracey, confirmed that the film is to go ahead while he attended Naomi Campbell's 40th birthday bash in Cannes.
Vogue's Andre Leon Talley blogged,
I caught Treacy, in an Alexander McQueen smoking with a black shawl collar spliced with gold lamé, to thank him for all those gorgeous Grace Jones hats. We had not hugged since Isabella Blow’s funeral three years ago, and he shared fabulous news: He has a producer to do a film on Isabella, and Galliano has already confirmed to play himself. Who will play Isabella? Treacy has a great trick up his hat, and it’s going to rock the world, but he cannot reveal it until this major new talent confirms.
Blow was best known for supporting the careers of both Treacy and the late Alexander McQueen. She committed suicide in May 2007 after a battle with depression and ovarian cancer.
