Memo Pad: Vogue on Film... Fade to Black... Revolving Door at OK...

R.J. Cutler may not have intended his film about Vogue to chronicle the last hurrah of the luxury boom but, as it turns out, it did.

WHAT’S HIS NAME, AGAIN?: When Salma Hayek stopped by “The Late Show with David Letterman,” she was in for some good-natured ribbing about her relationship with her fiancé, François-Henri Pinault. “Who is this guy?” demanded Letterman, apparently no student of luxury goods or fashion brands such as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent or Boucheron. When told his name, Letterman said, “Did you just make that up?” Asked if there was a wedding in the works, Hayek replied hesitantly, “I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe. But then again, maybe not.” For his part, Letterman offered the counsel of an in-law who chided him for not marrying the mother of his child: “Your child will hate you for the rest of your life.” Hayek also admitted she doesn’t speak much French, despite residing part time in Paris, having skipped out on a summer in the Sorbonne as a teenager.
