QUIKSILVER ON MOVE: Quiksilver Inc. is expected to announce its acquisition of Ski Rossignol today. The surfwear giant kicked off talks with Rossignol last summer to buy the 45 percent stake held by the founding Boix-Vives family. The Boix-Vives family also controls 63 percent of Rossignol’s voting rights. A Rossignol spokeswoman would not comment on the speculation. Quiksilver executives could not be reached for comment.
KYRA AND KEVIN: Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon were the hosts at a kickoff party Wednesday night at the Madison Avenue Emporio Armani store for Gen Art’s 10th annual film festival. Hand-in-hand, they showed no signs of wear and tear after months of shooting “Loverboy” — the festival’s opening flick, which he directed and she stars in. The husband-and-wife team appeared in “The Woodsman” last year.
“For the past year and a half, it’s been difficult for us to separate work from our private life,’’ Sedgwick said. “It seeps in a lot more when you work on something together. It’s time to have some professional distance, after we give birth to this one.”
The latest project evolved in a roundabout way. Sedgwick said Linda Wolff, the owner of CPW, “one of the only good clothing stores on the Upper West Side,” recommended reading Victoria Redel’s book “Loverboy.” She obliged and was haunted by the dark story about a dangerously protective mother, as was Bacon once he flipped through its pages. Referring to the dark focus of “The Woodsman,” a film about a child molester, Sedgwick said, “We’re trying to lighten up after this one.”
TIARA TIME: Miss USA contestants best be certain their grooming is up to snuff, since Pamela Dennis, Frédéric Fekkai and Molly Sims will be among the eight judges picking this year’s winner. Viewers from more than 100 countries are expected to tune in to the Donald Trump-backed showdown on April 11. Olympic gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps and former boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard will also offer their two cents.

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory. She quickly refocused her energy to more personal projects, which led to the completion of “Mr. Roosevelt.” Read the rest of WWD’s interview with the “Master of None” actress on WWD.com #wwdeye (📷: @jilliansollazzo)
