Sarah Jessica Parker is making Flowers on New York's West 17th Street her second home. She had dinner there last week with David Letterman producer Robert Morton, came back with friends Saturday night, then scheduled boyfriend Matthew Broderick's birthday party there for mid-March.
Martin Scorsese and Ismail Merchant are teaming up on a new project: a launch party for Lancaster's new fragrance, Casmir. The two filmmakers will host the event on March 28 at Saks Fifth Avenue's New York flagship, where Merchant's own Indian recipes will be prepared and served by Glorious Food. Why the film connection? Lancaster thinks it will help bring a younger customer to Casmir and made a contribution to the Merchant Ivory Foundation. Merchant even penned an eight-page advertorial for Casmir in Bon Appetit -- saying the exotic notes trigger memories of his youth in India.
