New Dali’s On Display, Thandie New To Louis Vuitton, The [David] Lauren and Lauren [Bush] Wedding Details, And More…

-------

Unseen “intimate snaps” of Salvador Dalí and his wife, Gala, will be on display at a Dalí exhibit, set to open at Galeries Lafayette in Paris this Thursday. The Lancel-organized exhibit accompanies Lancel’s new Daligramme Collection bags, based on a Dalí-inspired bag the brand made in the seventies. [WWD]

British actress Thandie Newton is the latest star of Louis Vuitton’s Double Exposure film series. The project “creates two ‘portraits’ of the sitter”—one of them is a literal portrait and the other is a “portrait of the subject’s inner self.” [Vogue U.K.]

Berlin will host World Models Market, the first trade show for models, agencies, stylists and makeup artists, photographers, and bookers, in early November. Director Anna Sokolova says they expect up to 2,500 international models to flock to the city for the four-day event. [WWD]

David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren, and Lauren Bush, granddaughter of former president George H.W. Bush, are getting married this weekend at the iconic designer’s 17,000-acre Colorado ranch. The Rocky Mountain ranch, called Double RL, also served as the backdrop for parts of John Wayne’s True Grit. [Page Six]

Lauren Bush And Judith Leiber Debut FEED For Evening

-------

Philanthropically-minded designer and high-profile bride-to-be Lauren Bush is famous for carrying her burlap FEED totes to even the biggest-deal social events. But, she concedes, “I know not all women are inclined to do that.” So Bush has teamed up with Judith Leiber—”the industry standard” for evening clutches, she points out—to launch the line’s first-ever nighttime option.

The clutch retails for $495, far less than many of Leiber’s more elaborately bejeweled minaudières, and $250 from every bag sold will go to supporting global food-supply programs. In fact, each sale will provide 1,000 school meals for children in need, the largest amount yet associated with one of FEED’s products.

Available in gold or silver metallic linen, the bag goes on sale at Judith Leiber stores, on its Web site, and at Bergdorf Goodman’s Leiber boutique May 5. Bush has already carried it once—to the Accessories Council’s ACE Awards last fall, where she picked up the humanitarian prize—but she’ll give it the official launch on May 6, when she and her mother, Sharon, will visit Bergdorf Goodman for a Mother’s Day event. And now guests presumably also know what to carry when Bush ties the knot with fiancé David Lauren.

Family Ties

-------


It’s been a busy decade for Michael J. Fox and wife Tracy Pollan. Since the actor was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991, the two have raised $230 million for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, whose mission is to fund scientific research on the disease. “He knows them all,” Pollan said of the scientific terms Fox has picked up along the way. “I’m smart enough to surround myself with people that are smarter than me,” her husband explained.

To celebrate Parkinson’s Awareness Month, Pollan and Fox hosted a charity shopping fête at Ralph Lauren’s Madison Avenue men’s store last night. On the fashion connection, Pollan called it “unbelievable timing.” “We were shopping at the Ralph Lauren store in the Hamptons, because our son Sam is a big fan, and we were talking about an idea that Tracy’s had for years,” Fox explained. “It was to do this dog tag necklace for Parkinson’s—they connote service, we have total respect for the military, and in a way it’s honoring them. It just so happened that Jerry Lauren was there and overheard.”

Ralph’s brother eventually brought the fashion company and the foundation together, and the silver dog tags finally made their debut. Priced at $98, all proceeds from each tag went to the foundation. Ralph and Ricky Lauren and Tom Selleck stopped in early before guests such as Barbara Walters, Christine Baranski, and Matt Bomer packed the quarters. Partway through, David Lauren hopped on the mic to say a few words. “I grew up watching your shows,” he said to Fox. “I thought, ‘Oh God, he is the coolest guy.’ ” Nearby, Dylan Lauren told Style.com, “Family Ties was my favorite. I still watch the reruns. The funny thing is that I recently befriended Justine Bateman. It’s like completing the circle.”

Home Is Where The Runway Is

It only seems appropriate that Daphne Guinness’ New York apartment sports a 80-foot-long hallway. “It’s like her second runway,” Architectural Digest contributing editor Bronson Van Wyck said with a laugh. The daring, silver-streaked style icon missed the Ralph Lauren-hosted cocktails for the magazine’s March issue and its new editor in chief, Margaret Russell, last night, but the multi-page spread of her art-bedecked apartment was the talk of the night. “You know she’s really quite surprising,” Russell said of her subject. “Before the shoot, I’ve met Daphne before at events around town. You see her for her style and then you discover she has these very strong opinions that she’s not afraid to voice. That’s a quality I’ve always admired in people.”

The Guinness touch aside, there were, aptly, plenty of New Yorkers on hand to celebrate with to-die-for apartments of their own. David Lauren (left, with Russell) and Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer both stopped by, while Dr. Lisa Airan mused on wallpaper versus grass cloth and that perennial NYC favorite, closet space. Reed Krakoff and his interior designer wife, Delphine, made the rounds, too. “Of course, for the business side of things, I make the decisions,” Delphine said. “But when it comes to the house, we share the design duties 50/50.” To which Krakoff quipped, “That’s the secret to a happy marriage, you know. It’s all about sharing.”

Step right up, dedicated shoppers: Chloe Sevigny’s Resort ’11 collection for Opening Ceremony goes on pre-sale today. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like one of Sevigny’s Robert Mapplethorpe-print T-shirts. (But probably not for grandma’s stocking, as most of them are NSFW.) [Fashionologie]

In London, Mulberry’s on top. The resurgent brand tripled its profits in the last sixth months, was named Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and is now opening a new Bond Street flagship that’s a giant 5,400 square feet. In other words: A whole lotta Alexas. [WWD]

And speaking of London fashion, Nicole Farhi’s named a new men’s designer: Massimo Nicosia, a veteran of Pringle of Scotland and Alessandro Dell’Acqua. [Vogue U.K.]
