Front Row at Giambattista Valli

“Meet my brother, don’t we look alike?” said actress Tallulah Ormsby-Gore.

“Meet my brother, don’t we look alike?” said actress Tallulah Ormsby-Gore as she and her big brother Jasset, the offspring of Karl Lagerfeld’s muse Lady Amanda Harlech, sat in Giambattista Valli’s front row Monday. After graduating from Central Saint Martins last year, Jasset is working in film production. Along the row sat fellow siblings Coco and Bianca Brandolini. Bianca, the aspiring actress and girlfriend to Fiat heir Lapo Elkann, said she’s waiting to hear back about some roles. Chinese artist Yi Zhou, meanwhile, said she’s producing a short video featuring Pharrell Williams. “It’s a very surreal film, based on a sculpture made of half marble, half black wood,” she said, adding Williams will be acting, not rapping. Zhou also has a trio of exhibitions this year, starting with a manga-themed show in Paris in May, followed by solo exhibitions in Portugal and Shanghai. Also from the art world, Harumi Klossowska de Rola, daughter of the French painter Balthus, is planning an exhibition of her ethnic-inspired jewelry in Tokyo next year.
