Vivienne Westwood at the Races... Ringmasters... Save the Garment Center...

Is Dame Vivienne Westwood embracing the establishment?... Nanette Lepore’s efforts to save the Garment Center are in full force...


LEAP OF FAITH: Miss USA Crystle Stewart was standing tall at Cho Cheng’s show Tuesday but not nearly as high as she has been recently. The Texas beauty queen went skydiving for the first time a few days ago in Yuma, Ariz., but she was in good hands at 13,500 feet — taking a tandem leap with the Golden Knights — and taking them up on a dare. “One thing I must say I am not is chicken. There was no way I was going to chicken out. I even went twice,” she said. “It was just a fear I wanted to conquer. It should help with my fear of flying.”

LuAnn de Lesseps flew into the show after the lights went down to join her cohorts from “The Real Housewives of New York City.”

FRENCH ALLIANCE: After Diane von Fursternberg’s show on Sunday, Loulou de la Falaise made her second fashion week appearance at Sophie Theallet early on Tuesday. “I am here because of friends, because of Rupert and Azzedine,” she said, referring to Rupert Everett, who was also at the show, and Azzedine Alaïa, where Theallet once cut her teeth. Expect more sightings from the designer and Yves Saint Laurent icon. “I am also going to Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein,” she said.
