SHOE IN: Moody fashion fixture Kanye West and shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti were among VIPS in Anthony Vaccarello’s front row on Tuesday night. Zanotti said he just signed a footwear license with Vaccarello. The collection will be distributed through the Giuseppe Zanotti Design showrooms in Milan and New York and will hit selected boutiques and department stores in August. “They’re very naked in design,” said Zanotti. Four shoe models stalked the runway, including a black patent heel with multi straps. A prototype mishap, which left one model hobbling off of the runway, put a damper on the occasion.

 

Audrey Marnay said she loaned her pipes to a soon-to-be-released album by French musician Alain Chamfort, who recently released a concept album about Yves Saint Laurent. “It was fun, I sang on an electro pop track, but it’s not the start of a new singing career. I’m just having fun with pals and enjoying many disciplines,” said Marnay, who has also designed a dark silver bangle with garnets and black spinels for Eternamé in aid of the charity Enfants de Bam, for which she is an ambassador.
