Diamond and Dollars... Winging to Rio... Armani in Moscow...

Christie’s New York jewelry sales held on Wednesday brought in more than $46.5 million.

CARNEGIE HALL HEADS WEST: Orange County got a dose of Chinese and East Coast culture last week, when South Coast Plaza played host to a Carnegie Hall art exhibit presented by Christian Dior. The occasion marked the first time Carnegie Hall has reached outside of New York to offer its festival programming. The collaboration, titled “Christian Dior Presents Photographs by Quentin Shih,” is part of Carnegie Hall’s “Ancient Paths, Modern Voices: A Festival Celebrating Chinese Culture.” Dior president Pamela Baxter, South Coast Plaza owner Henry Segerstrom and Quentin Shih were on hand Thursday evening for the presentation, where about 200 revelers joined in the evening’s festivities, including a show by Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka” performers. To create the works, Shih photographed models in Dior’s winter 2008 fashion show, then superimposed Chinese landscapes and characters to create a dramatic juxtaposition. The Beijing-based photographer’s work is on display through Nov. 7 at South Coast Plaza. The exhibition features 20 of the original 22 works that Shih created for the exhibit in China. The works next will be on display until Nov. 10 at Carnegie Hall.
