LUNCH BUNCH: Hedi Slimane may have parted ways with Dior Homme, but he still has friends in very high places. On Wednesday, Slimane was spotted having lunch at the Bristol hotel in Paris with none other than French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Dressed in skintight black jeans, Slimane was also joined by his former colleague, Dior's fine jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane; French Vogue's fashion director Emmanuelle Alt, and Castellane's sister, Mathilde Agostinelli, who works in Prada's public relations office and is close friends of the First Couple. While the group sat at a discreet table tucked beside the lobby bar, the fashionable lunch crowd stayed glued to their seats until Sarkozy got up to leave, security squad in tow. Who said fashion and politics don't mix?
