Dior, Go Fish... Leonard Cohen Calling... A Smile on Bond Street...

Dior's "Coffret de Victoire" features one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces... Leonard Cohen played the Beacon Theatre... The fashion flock toasts The Smile...

FIRST, HE TAKES MANHATTAN: It turns out that the Bryant Park tents don’t have a monopoly on rowdy mobs this week. Hundreds of ticket holders pushed and shoved their way into the Beacon Theatre on Thursday night for Leonard Cohen’s sold-out concert. It was the first time the legendary musician had played in the U.S. in 15 years. “Since then, I’ve had a lot of Prozac, Wellbutrin, Ritalin, Tylenol extra-strength,” Cohen deadpanned. “I studied the philosophies, but cheerfulness kept breaking through.” Who would have guessed that the melancholic sound man had a sense of humor? He even skipped on- and offstage during his three-hour set. It seems the meds must be working.

Cohen will tour the U.S. starting with a show in Austin on April 2 and stopping in Oakland, Calif.; Seattle, Chicago, Boston and Indio, Calif., for the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
