FASHION FEST: The TriBeCa Film Festival, which opens next week, promises to deliver some fun fashion moments. Not only will the Renée Zellweger flick "Down With Love" premiere, Isaac Mizrahi will appear in "Ghostlight," Richard Move’s homage to Martha Graham, and next Thursday and Saturday director David Teboul will screen "Yves Saint Laurent — 5 Avenue Marceau 75116 Paris" and "Yves Saint Laurent — His Life and Times," a two-part documentary about the designer.
Beyond the documentary’s old newsreel footage, baby photos, an animated Nasty Lulu cartoon and runway coverage, Yves Saint Laurent quotes Proust. His mother tells the story of when, as a three-year old, Yves demanded his aunt change her look. Catherine Deneuve puts the seamstresses through their paces in the atelier. Pierre Bergé gives an interview at home, his parrot squawking in the background. Betty Catroux talks about the nocturnal world she and Saint Laurent explored. And Loulou de la Falaise remembers the passionate affair Saint Laurent and Bergé conducted in their younger years.
MEN FOR ALL SEASONS: Everyone knows the Four Seasons restaurant’s Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder are legends in their own right, but now the pair has been officially immortalized in the four-minute film, "The Four Seasons: The Movie," which will premiere at a reception May 8 at the restaurant. The creation of Gourmet magazine and Sharp TV, the film is a compilation of photographs documenting the boite’s 43-year history and its fabulous patrons from Jackie O to Bill Clinton, and set to pop music that corresponds with the images’ era. "It’s like an MTV composite," says von Bidder. "We have a really formal image, but the film is really hip."
