You will be thrilled to hear that Claudia Schiffer is back in high heels after breaking her foot and spending almost a year in flats and sneakers. You will be thrilled once again to hear that she has already lost 15 pounds of the weight she put on before the birth of her son in January. When last seen, Claudia was strolling the streets of London shopping for new lingerie and sporting the latest English fashion craze, a handbag designed by Anya Hindmarch with — lest you forget who you are — your very own photo prominently displayed thereon. Claudia chose one of herself taken when she was a tiny tyke. Definitely beautiful, definitely Claudia, just not nearly so tall.
If you’re in the market for a Mini Cooper or a Audemars Piguet gentleman’s watch — who doesn’t love them? — or possibly a week’s stay in Mustique in a luxury villa, then you better slip on your miniest mini and get over to the new Copacabana on April 23 for the Henry Street Settlement auction-dinner dance. The co-chairs, Pilar Crespi Robert, Laura Hunt, Jill Swid, Kathy Hilton and Marisa Noel Brown, are calling this year’s party "Glamorama" the cute things, and have gone anti-black-tie asking the guests to dress "Glam." Philanthropist Jonathan Tisch, the chairman and ceo of Loews Hotels, will take the spotlight as their only honoree. Fortunately, that may mean fewer speeches.
A chic urban Deco-inspired supper club in black and white is the setting of the evening and DJ Tom Finn will be doing the tunes. Expected are 450 of the glam young, the glam not-so-young and the glam haven’t-been-young-for-quite-a-while-but-are-still-trying.
From the I’ll Do Anything for My Art Dept.: Even though model-actress Jamie (aka James) King’s role as the alluring mysterious "Jade/bad girl" in MGM’s action flick "Bulletproof Monk" involves strenuous physical feats, for which she spent months training, nothing curbed her girlish enthusiasm. Not even the scenes of potentially dangerous cat fighting with Victoria "About a Boy" Smurfit.
