Bao Bao and Billionaire Boys... At Dior Homme.... More From Paris...

Bao Bao Wan wore a different hat at Kenzo’s show on Saturday: guest editor for Chinese Esquire.

FULL HOUSE: It was a family reunion of sorts Wednesday night when Eric Villency hosted a dinner in honor of Elise Overland and Threeasfour, recipients of his Villency Emerging Fashion Program’s support. The designers packed the top floor of Bobo with members of their respective clans, including Hope Atherton, Ann Dexter-Jones, Justin Giunta, Aimee Mullins, Arden Wohl, Zani Gugelmann and Sarah Wynter. “I don’t think I’m thin enough for this party,” quipped one guest as he tried to squeeze his way past Threeasfour’s Adi (sporting an Icelandic sweater that was a gift from Björk). “I can’t find my date,” said Chiara Clemente, scanning the crowd for Poppy de Villeneuve. After a lengthy cocktail hour, guests sat down to a candle-lit meal of beet salad and short ribs. Tom Sachs toasted Overland (“She’s a master of her own universe”) in the back room, while revelers table-hopped in the front.

TOM FORD SINGS THE BLUES: Tom Ford is taking designer denim to a whole new stratosphere with men’s jeans that retail for $990. The jeans, hitting stores now, are made from Japanese selvedge denim that feels and looks raw, but has been pre-washed and pre-shrunken so the indigo doesn’t rub off. They also come in black or white. The seat is distinguished merely by a straight line, stitched across the pockets, and a small black tab reading TF001 or TF002. The first number designates the boot cut that Ford wears himself, and the second is a straight-leg cut. In the front, the button is plated with 18-karat gold, and the pockets are lined with the same silk as Tom Ford suits. But is the price justified for classic, unembellished jeans? If you have to ask, you can’t afford them.
