Yves Saint Laurent's Online Casting Call...W Magazine vs. W Hotel in Miami...

Yves Saint Laurent sent a shout-out through cyberspace Tuesday for 130 extras — tall, elegant “beautiful people” — aged 25 to 50 to be in an advertisement.

DUELING PARTIES: It was W the magazine vs. W the hotel on Thursday. While Aby Rosen and Samantha Boardman held a dinner at the hotel’s Solea that rolled over to the Wall late night, Stefano Tonchi, De Beers and Daphne Guinness were glamming it up for a cherry-picked crowd of 100 at Soho House. Susan Sarandon, Stefano Pilati, Francisco Costa, Silvia Fendi, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Goga Ashkenazi, Kim Heirston, Ambra Medda and Mera Rubell, sporting a lavender wig, were among the guests, but all eyes were on Guinness for good reason. Decked out in De Beers diamonds and a slim, cream Givenchy getup with HotPants and a sheer overlay, she couldn’t have sparkled more. Even her hair part was meticulously flecked with silver glitter.

“I was upstairs with all my makeup and duct tape, because I don’t use anyone to help me dress and do it all myself. And I thought, How can I make this part look better?” she said.

Meanwhile, La Mer took the Art Basel plunge with a private pop-up spa at a secret South Beach location. Local tastemakers such as Jennifer Rubell and celebrities (they were trying to squeeze in Michael Stipe the last day, which was fully booked) were treated to one-hour facials by the most requested pros from the company’s Urban Retreat Spa in Harrods.
