Yazbukey’s Cult Dance At Le Baron


Sometimes all a party needs is a girl in a corset who can dance. That was the case last night when, around midnight, jewelry designer Yaz Kurhan of Yazbukey christened her Fall collection, Cult, with a sexy dance atop a shrouded piano at Le Baron. The soundtrack was French heartthrob du jour Sébastien Tellier’s hit “Roche.” After her sultry gymnastics, we grilled Yaz about this season’s goods (Spring’s line includes mice coin purses, vintage plastic telephone bags, and a hotdog necklace with all the fixin’s). “It’s all about Sébastien Tellier,” she cooed, holding up the giant mirror-and-Plexi pendant bust of the long-haired, bearded crooner she was wearing. Besides a black lace push-up bra, nude bustier (a forties relic she discovered in an Istanbul souk for €20), and silver spike pumps, the oversize accessory for Fall was about all Yaz had on. “I love how he looks, I love how he sings, and I love all that hair,” she gushed. “Even if you don’t know Sébastien, my pendant also looks a lot like Jesus, don’t you think?” Around 2 a.m., Malcolm McLaren—an intime of Yaz’s—showed up, along with art director Marc Ascoli and his wife, Rue du Mail designer Martine Sitbon. “Yaz was my design intern when she was about 20,” Sitbon said. “She had short, spiky, tomboy hair, and she looked like an Egyptian punk back then. She has the same wicked energy now, only it’s so much more feminine.”

Vive La Couture! (For Now)


Luxury execs are cautious yet confident about their haute couture business. Those lucky remaining clients can expect even more white-glove service. Givenchy will even toss in a wedding planner.

Attention, thespians: The Life and Times of Christian Dior will be cast soon by former Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren. Prepare for less punk and more “authentic music of the period.”

What do women want? For one sexologist, the answer is in the apes.

Facebook and the Daily Mail don’t lie: Prince Harry is single. Chelsy Davy, the pouty-mouthed blonde who never met a bikini she didn’t like, reportedly broke off their five-year relationship in exchange for a less paparazzi-saturated life, and the Prince is devastated. Ladies, comfort accordingly.
