At the London launch of “Blow by Blow: The Story of Isabella Blow,”, WWD chatted with co-writer Tom Sykes who provided this insight about Isabella Blow’s widower: “Detmar would send me these enormous unhinged e-mails in the middle of the night — endless ramblings at 2 a.m.,” said Sykes. “I wondered what I had got myself into, but I realized I’d been privileged to have the job of sitting and staring over his shoulder.”
According to WWD: When asked who should play Issie in the planned film about her life? “Rachel Weisz,” offered Blow. But Sykes begged to differ: “Well, it would have to be Lady Gaga, wouldn’t it?” he said.
