Front Row at Y-3

As always, there was a serious standing-room-only crowd at Yohji Yamamoto’s show, but the front row was noteworthy, too.

BEAM ME UP, YOHJI: As always, there was a serious standing-room-only crowd at Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 show Sunday, but the front row was noteworthy, too. Actors Idris Elba, Anton Yelchin, Isabel Lucas, Clemens Schick and Martina Codecasa were on hand. The actress and TV personality known in Japan as Marie was in from Asia, as was Mandopop singer He Jie. And Dasha Zhukova and Collier Schorr represented the art world.

Lucas, who divides her time between Los Angeles and Australia, brought her “auntie’ with her to Gotham. The actress is about to start shooting Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” with Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Rooney Mara and Ryan Gosling, but said she is sworn to secrecy about her role.

Yelchin, who will appear in J.J. Abrams’ next take on “Star Trek,” said he and his fellow cast members are under strict orders not to reveal anything about the plot. “That way people will actually want to go see the movie without feeling as though they have already seen it from the 50 trailers and 35 ads. That will come later but for now we’ll keep quiet,” Yelchin said. As for what the 31-year-old actor had done for fun in New York, he said, “I had a cheeseburger last night that was quite good, and I took a bath in the tub in my luxurious hotel room.”
