Isaac Mizrahi was thrilled to have The Artist Formerly Known as Prince in the front row of his show last Thursday evening. "When I met him I told him how much of a fan I was," said Mizrahi, at a small dinner party afterward at the new restaurant Three Degrees North in SoHo. "He had the word 'slave' written on his cheek," said Mizrahi with a laugh. "I don't know, but maybe it meant he's my slave." Maybe not. The Purple One is said to be dating model Veronica Webb, who was in Mizrahi's show.

Actress Elizabeth Hurley, the new face of EstAe Lauder, has been approached by the U.K. branch of the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees to help it raise its profile. Her first shot would come at the UNHCR's charity ball in London in May and its U.K. adviser, Daniel Shier, has no doubts what she could do to help. "I'm sure she'll wear a dress of great importance," he said. After all, it was Hurley's appearance in a low-cut Versace gown last year at a movie premiere in London that put her on the road to stardom.

According to model Ingrid Seynhaeve, Helmut Newton recently asked her to do a nude photo shoot. Although Seynhaeve has never posed in the buff, she said she's considering his offer. She recently posed for photographer Timothy White wearing just body paint and violets. That image will be published in the June issue of Esquire. A fully clothed Seynhaeve wore a black satin Dolce & Gabanna pantsuit to last week's opening of "Portraits," White's exhibit at the Duggal Downtown Gallery in New York.
