Front Row at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac: Family Ties

The front row at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac's show in Paris was a family affair.

The front row at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac was a family affair: The designer's girlfriend Mareva Galanter sat near his son, Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, who was accompanied by current squeeze Dita Von Teese.

 

French singer Izïa Higelin has been trying to keep a low profile since winning two awards ­ rock album of the year and best new live artist ­ on Saturday at the Victoires de la Musique, France's equivalent of the Grammys. "Winning is exhausting ­ there's a lot of pressure. You just want to go home and celebrate with your loved ones," she said.

 

But the 19-year-old singer is about to receive even greater exposure—she stars in a new print and TV advertising campaign for clothing brand Petit Bateau. Philippe Manoeuvre, the veteran music journalist who sits on the jury of France's version of "Pop Idol," gave a mixed review to Brooklyn-based duo French Horn Rebellion, who played a live set at the show. Would they cut it on the show? "Clearly not,­ they don't sing, and I am only interested in singers. They are more of a techno band," Manoeuvre sniffed.
