Front Row at Alexis Mabille

CALIFORNIA DREAMING: In his straw panama hat, a tanned Louis-Marie de Castelbajac blended right in at Alexis Mabille’s nautical-themed men’s wear show in Paris. The artist was fresh off the opening night of his exhibition “The Blood Bow & the Arrows of Desire,” consisting of works on tracing paper and aluminum, at the M.H. Karst gallery in Paris. “I love the duality of these two surfaces, which are total opposites,” he said. Up next is another show at the Roberts & Tilton gallery in Los Angeles.

Andy Gillet has just returned from Hollywood, where he hung out with fellow French thespian Roxane Mesquida and snagged himself a U.S. agent. “I would really, really, really enjoy doing a big action movie,” he said. Failing that, he hopes to work with an independent director like Gus Van Sant, Gregg Araki or Jim Jarmusch. Casting directors, take note.
