RED, THEY SAID: "I've got to go and see all the sexy boys," chirped actress Jaime Winstone as she navigated a throng of revelers and went in search of scantily clad male models at the Emporio Armani store on London's Bond Street Thursday. The mannequins had stripped down to their briefs (Armani, of course) to fete the launch of an Emporio Armani (Product) Red fragrance duo, part of the Red initiative founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to fight AIDS in Africa. Rena Sindi, Margo Stilley, Kalita Al Swaidi, Astrid Muñoz, Dan Macmillan and Noelle Reno also turned out to support the cause, and enjoyed a tropical beach scene created in the boutique's basement. "I'm going nowhere near that thing," said Al Swaidi, eyeing a mechanical surfboard. "I'd make a total fool of myself."
CELEBRATING NAN: "It's funny to think how many of these dresses I've zipped up," joked the Countess Sheila de Rochambeau, looking over the 75 outfits belonging to the late Nan Kempner at the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition that opened in Paris Tuesday night. A host of Kempner's friends reminisced about the New York socialite's fashion talent and outrageous sense of humor during the cocktail hosted by Saint Laurent at the YSL foundation here. Ines de la Fressange recalled bumping into Kempner wearing a YSL shirt. "I touched it, and I asked what it was made of, and she said 'It's chatouche,' and that she'd taken the material to Saint Laurent. It wasn't something to shout about, of course, it wasn't very politically correct."
