Dior Buys Dovima, Britt Maren’s New York Nosh, Save The (Royal) Date, And More…

-------

Dovima has a new home: Chez Christian Dior. The iconic Avedon portrait of legendary model Dovima in a Dior gown, surrounded by elephants (pictured), was snapped up by the house of Dior when it went on the block at Christie’s much-anticipated auction in Paris. It went for $1.1 million (at current exchange rates), the highest price, according to a Christie’s expert, recorded for such a photo in France. [WWD]

Looking for runway newcomer Britt Maren? Try New York’s Fat Radish restaurant on the Lower East Side. As she tells W, her boyfriend works there as a cook and she’s a regular—as, apparently, is Marc Jacobs. [W]

More details are emerging on Prince William’s royal wedding: Wills and Kate Middleton will be married on April 29 at Westminster Abbey. Dress details, alas, remain a mystery. [Vogue U.K.]

Good day for J.Crew: The do-no-wrong retailer has announced that it’s been acquired by Leonard Green & Partners and TPG Capital, to the tune of almost $3 billion (!). CEO Mickey Drexler will stay on, and remain one of the company’s largest stakeholders. [Fashionologie]
