COSTUME PARTY: Victoire de Castellane, Dior’s fine jewelry designer, said she plans to introduce a signature line of costume jewelry, slated to launch at the end of 2010. “There will be around 10 to 15 unique pieces, each telling a different story,” she related at a garden party Wednesday night at the Hotel Monnaie in Paris organized by French gallerists Kamel Mennour and Clémence and Didier Krzentowski of Galerie Kreo. De Castellane is throwing her hat in the costume jewelry ring at an interesting time, given that Louis Vuitton’s Camille Miceli is slated to arrive at Dior next month as artistic director of its costume jewelry lines. Other guests at the party included Azzedine Alaïa, fresh off a vacation in Tunisia and surrounded by a gaggle of “Alaïa girls,” as he put it. Alaïa said he plans to host a charity art auction on Oct. 19 at his Marais headquarters.
