The New York set, meanwhile, revealed a plethora of projects: Julia Restoin Roitfeld has just shot younger brother Vladimir in a campaign for Rock & Republic, for which she was the art director; co-founder of Upper Echelon Shoes Nick Cohen has begun construction of the high-end footwear brand's premier freestanding store in New York, and budding actress Analeis Lorig said she'll appear in ABC's new pilot drama, "The Unusuals," starring Amber Tamblyn and Adam Goldberg and directed by Stephen Hopkins of "Californication" fame.

A BELGIAN TOUCH: On Tuesday night, Nevena Borissova, owner of SoHo's Curve Boutique, welcomed Belgian fashion designer Tim Van Steenburgen to America with a small fete at her store. "I love it here. I just wish it weren't so hot," Van Steenburgen said of his first-ever visit to the States. But the day's oppressive heat didn't keep him from enjoying the intimate gathering.

Joining him in the celebration that night were stylist Rachel Zoe, actor Matt Dillon and Belgian model Elisa Crombez. The Mercer Street venue was decorated with Van Steenburgen's avant-garde fashions and light sculptures by local artist Gordon Stevenson. "This stuff is supposed to be used to detail your ride," Stevenson noted. "With the amount I order, they must think my car is covered in lights."

BOOK CLUB: Turning a page, Julie Delpy, Lady Antonia Fraser and the husky-voiced Charlotte Rampling are among personalities lined up to give readings during Shakespeare & Company's third FestivalandCo literary event: Exploring Memoir and Biography. The four-day festival kicks off today. Delpy is a familiar face at the fabled book store in Paris' Left Bank, having filmed scenes from "Before Sunrise" among its book aisles in the mid-Nineties.
