MISSING LINK: French fashion folk turned out in force for a charity dinner on Monday, but one key figure was missing. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman Bernard Arnault, who was due to cohost the event with former archrival François Pinault, has canceled all public appearances following the death of his father, Jean Arnault, last Thursday. Designers from both LVMH and Pinault’s group PPR were out en masse for the fund-raiser benefiting Maison de Solenn, a treatment center for troubled teenagers. Nicolas Ghesquière said he might put in some store appearances to support the upcoming launch of his first fragrance, Balenciaga Paris. Bethy Lagardère, who last year staged an exhibition of couture outfits from her closet in her native Brazil, revealed she is working on another project scheduled to be unveiled there in June and July, traditionally the period when São Paulo holds its fashion week.
