Lily Donaldson, dripping in gold Bulgari jewelry, said she has no room left for artworks. "What, with my eight Picassos and a couple of Man Rays, where does one put it, under the bed?" she said. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, meanwhile, said he's preparing an art show of his own. The designer's first 30-piece exhibition, with the influence of media on art as its theme, is planned for London in November.
Gawking at one of Perego's giant gumball machines filled with plastic skulls, de Castellane revealed she'll be downsizing for Dior's next high jewelry collection, to be unveiled during Paris couture week. "Let's just say it involves baby versions of the Belladone Island [line]," she teased.
Owen Wilson kept a low profile under a straw hat all evening. The actor has just wrapped the screen adaptation of John Grogan's best-selling book, "Marley and Me," directed by David Frankel of "The Devil Wears Prada" and costarring Jennifer Aniston. "I'm very happy to be here. I'm on vacation," the actor drawled.
Gaultier reminisced about his recent experience providing commentary for the Eurovision Song Contest's French viewers. "I had to watch three rounds of rehearsals, so I'd kind of had enough by the time the final came around," said the designer, adding that he'd been enchanted by Bosnia's act featuring knitting brides. "I might use that in one of my shows. Knitting needles are the best accessory for a bride," he said. The elusive Hedi Slimane even slipped into the event, minus his camera. The snapper said he's focusing on Parisian youth of the more underground kind.
