Daphne Guinness appeared to have difficulty breathing in her corseted dress at the Armani Privé show on Tuesday. The heiress said she had just completed a glove sculpture made from gold and several thousand diamonds, which she expects to present in a gallery soon. Socialite Olivia Palermo, who recently launched a necklace collection for Roberta Freymann, said she’s mulling a switch to designing full-time after completing the next season of the MTV-scripted reality show “The City,” which will likely be her last. “I’m just kind of playing with the idea, seeing what I like and what I don’t like,” said Palermo, attending the show with her boyfriend, model Johannes Huebl. Bond girl Gemma Arterton is taking time off in order to “have a little bit of a life” before what promises to be a busy 12 months: After starring in the Henrik Ibsen play “The Master Builder” at the end of the year, she is due to film three movies. Claudia Cardinale recently wrapped two movies with first-time directors in Tunisia and Turkey, and is off to shoot in New York in September on another debut feature. Amber Le Bon, back from a two-month modeling stint in Hong Kong, said her schedule left little room for extra-curricular projects. “Literally, I can’t plan tomorrow, let alone next month or next week,” said the daughter of Duran Duran front man Simon Le Bon and model Yasmin Le Bon. “I do what I’m told.” Honestly, the rock progeny of today.
