Sean “Diddy” Combs is taking the name of his most recent album, “Last Train to Paris,” to heart. The hip-hop impresario-turned-designer slipped into his front seat at Gareth Pugh minutes before the show started. “I’m here presenting my album,” said Combs. “I’m just here observing, trying to figure it all out,” he added when asked about upcoming fashion projects. Standing out in the crowd at Gareth Pugh is no mean feat. “There’s a man in here wearing a top hat,” whispered Rick Owens. The designer noted he was gearing up to present his furniture at the furniture fair in New York in May. R&B singer Cassie squeezed into her seat wearing a white Pugh number ahead of a performance at the V.I.P. Room nightclub. The singer is working on her next album, which will be “more pop than R&B.” Meanwhile, Leigh Lezark said she was working on the soundtrack for the Sophia Kokosalaki show on Saturday. “It’s going to be very moody and Gothic,” she offered.
