Front Row at Kris Van Assche

By

Ayo and Jared Leto were among guests.

CHANGING HATS: Having conquered the music world, singer-songwriter Ayo is ready for a new challenge, and confessed at the Kris Van Assche show today that she is considering several movie offers. “I am almost certainly going to play Josephine Baker in an international film project,” she said. After a series of collaborations with reputed musicians, including Gail Ann Dorsey, on her third album last year, Ayo, whose habitual repertoire is a mix of soul, funk and reggae, said she was looking to perhaps team up with hip-hop artists in the near future. As for her dream of the ultimate musical partnership, that would be to work with Stevie Wonder, “but I guess so is everyone’s,” she said demurely.

VIP guest of honor Jared Leto, meanwhile, arrived as the fashion show came to a close and was swiftly whipped backstage.
