MUM’S THE WORD: Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, who gained notoriety after appearing in Lady Gaga’s video for “Born This Way,” lets his tattoos speak for himself. Spotted at the DSquared show — and he’s hard to miss with his skeletal body decorations — Genest kept his words to a minimum, hardly looking up from his handheld. This much was to be gathered, though: he’s working on “a music project” and “a contract with Universal.”

Neil Barrett sat a few seats away to lend his support to DSquared designers Dean and Dan Caten. “I already finished the collection, so I’m free to do this now,” said the personable designer, who shows his women’s wear line in Paris.
