FOOD FETISH: Christian Louboutin wants to make sure the well-heeled are eating right, even when they’re rushed off their feet. The shoe designer hopes to open an eatery in Paris’ tony Galerie Vero-Dodat passageway with his friend and gallery owner, Pierre Passebon. On Tuesday night, Louboutin and Passebon hosted a party in the locale, where they both already have spaces, to fete the recent launch of “Vingt Ans Sans Dormir” (“Twenty Years Without Sleep”), a book by Paquita Paquin. Louboutin said he would like to open a snack bar with “Laduree-like” treats, referring to the renowned Parisian tearooms. Shoe-shi anyone?
OH, WHAT A NIGHT: Couture afficionado Elaine Wynn — who’s got 75,000 square feet of retail space in her husband Stephen’s $2.7 billion resort to play in — invited a few of Las Vegas’ biggest names to shop in the new Dior boutique at the Wynn resort. “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” host Robin Leach looked on as the wives of boxing promoter Bob Arum and former Board of Gaming head Don Snyder went wild for the Detective bags. One lucky lady won out with the $25,000 “Miss Dior” green beryl ring. All the big spending was for a good cause: Wynn and co-host, Dior head Marla Sabo, were raising money for the Las Vegas Performing Arts Center foundation, set to open next year.
