Christopher Bailey Visits Buckingham Palace... Fashion in Pictures...

Christopher Bailey made a visit to Buckingham Palace Friday to receive his Member of the Order of the British Empire honor from Queen Elizabeth II.

ALL IN THE FAMILY: On Thursday night at WQXR’s new WNYC home on Charlton Street, Trudi Styler and Sting hosted and acted in their movie “Twin Spirits.” The film, narrated by Derek Jacobi, portrayed the love between Clara and Robert Schumann through a reading of love letters and performances of the composers’ music. The evening was to benefit The Music Unites Choir — for public high school students and The Royal Opera House Education Programs — a favorite project of the rock star and his wife. It was an eclectic enough evening to attract guests such as Joshua Bell and Donna Karan, who also got to hear WQXR’s Elliott Forrest interview Sting and Styler. Sting surprises: He plays the lute, violin and cello; practices Bach every day; would love to write modern music for the lute; prefers fully punctuated, hand-written letters to e-mail, and feels composing music is a kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
