PAS DES DEUX: If Olivier Theyskens hadn't been the only boy in his ballet class growing up, he might have danced down that career path rather than becoming one of fashion's hottest young designers. But he quit and now indulges his passion by attending ballet performances. Fittingly, his Nina Ricci brand, owned by Puig, will be the sponsor for American Ballet Theatre's Spring Season Gala taking place at the Metropolitan Opera House on May 19. If Theyskens makes it to New York for the event, it won't be his first time at Lincoln Center. The designer came from Paris for ABT's new "Sleeping Beauty" during the 2007 spring season and has attended the company's rehearsals.

ON THE DOT: Movado is a champion of the arts and the stars of its ad campaign — such as dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and actress Mia Maestro — represent that. But at least one of its brand ambassadors is tapping an art outside her field. "I just finished directing my first music video," actress Kerry Washington said at the brand's fete celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Museum Dial watch at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. While a fan of hip-hop — the video Washington directed was by Common — she, and other guests including Maestro, Baryshnikov, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos and Movado chairman and chief executive Efraim Grinberg all jammed to the tunes of jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. "I've known him forever," said Baryshnikov of Marsalis. The honorees for the second annual Movado Future Legends: Honoring Emerging Artists of Exceptional Talent were also revealed. The recipients included design team Doshi Levien, and dancers Kirk Henning and Doug Letheren.

CFDA'S L.A. BASH: Diane von Furstenberg, along with CFDA executive director Steven Kolb, welcomed Los Angeles CFDA members to her Coldwater Canyon mansion Thursday night for an evening of cocktails and conversation. "We wanted to let you know that we haven't forgotten you," von Furstenberg told the group, including Koi Suwannagate, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, James Perse, Magda Berliner, Louis Verdad, Kevan Hall and Bradley Bayou. "In fact, we are often jealous because everyone in Los Angeles is so cool and stylish." Then she made a beeline for actress Perrey Reeves, who was wearing a vintage DVF print from 1976, and even snapped a photo. After the designer addressed issues ranging from copyright protection to CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund eligibility, one guest said, "I have another question: Can I stay here when you're not home?"
