Anna Sui knows how to make her fans feel welcome. The designer was at Bar Six in New York’s Greenwich Village the other night having dinner with Kal Ruttenstein and Marc Jacobs, when she heard that Courtney Love, with her baby, Frances Bean Cobain, was shopping in her SoHo boutique. Sui had someone from the boutique bring Love and child up to Bar Six, where Frances Bean ended up happily bouncing on Ruttenstein’s lap.
It might not be the Oscars, but the Cannes Film Festival gets designers pretty worked up over who’s dressing whom. Yves Saint Laurent has provided outfits for two legends of the French cinema, Catherine Deneuve, who is vice president of the Cannes jury, and Jeanne Moreau, who is the host for the opening and closing ceremonies. Christian Dior is dressing Isabelle Adjani, the star of the new French mega-production “La Reine Margot,” as well as Romane Bohringer, Sylvie Vartan, Irene Jacob and culture minister Jacques Toubon and his wife, Lise.
