TIME TRAVELERS: Without his pointy ears, Leonard Nimoy, aka “Mr. Spock,” was just another guy at Yeohlee’s fashion show Monday. But 42 years after the sci-fi pilot first aired, he is still at it, playing his adult self in J.J. Abrams’ forthcoming feature, which is “a prequel to the entire franchise,” he said. Zachary Quinot shaved his eyebrows and spent some three hours each day to get the ear thing just right to act as the younger Spock. Watching the actor as his younger self was “wonderful,” said Nimoy, adding, “I handed off the torch,” extending his arm for effect. And dogged as those Trekkies may be, Nimoy isn’t giving any clues about what lies ahead for the USS Enterprise crew. Monday’s reason for being there was much more tangible anyway. “We’re the Yoehlettes,” he said of himself; his wife, Susan, and seatmate Calvin Tsao.
For Isaac Mizrahi’s spring relaunch of Liz Claiborne that Macy’s Terry Lundgren and Nicole Fischelis were seated next to Liz Claiborne Inc. chief executive officer William L. McComb at Mizrahi’s show for his designer collection Monday. It was Lundgren’s first show of the week, and he said that, later this week, Mizrahi was going to personally walk him through the new Liz Claiborne line. “But all of my team has seen it and came back with positive reviews,” Lundgren said. “I’m hearing good things, and I am excited to see it.”
