PICK AND MIX: American designer Earl Pickens’ first Paris show scored with one local political star. The onetime — and potentially future — Socialist presidential candidate Ségolène Royal praised the designer’s smocked blue shirt and fluid beige jersey dress. Turns out that the Bocage Avenir Couture factory, which makes Pickens wares, is located in Royal’s native Deux Sevres region, and her first order (two jackets, trousers and a woven denim pencil skirt) was hanging backstage, ready for delivery. Also on hand was J. Alexander, who, having wrapped the finale for “America’s Next Top Model,” was returning to New York to finalize proofs for his upcoming autobiography/self-help tome, “Follow the Model,” due from Simon & Schuster in November.
