THE PRINCE IN PICTURES: Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe calls himself his “own paparazzo.” At “Fashion Victims,” an exhibition that recently opened in Bologna, Italy, von Hohenlohe proudly stood in front of his work — photographs of him behind the camera, passing by à la Hitchcock or posing with, say, his mother, Ira von Furstenberg, sister of the late Egon and former sister-in-law of Diane von Furstenberg. Naturally, fashion takes center stage as a theme. Von Hohenlohe appears in the pictures backstage with Marc Jacobs or Jean Paul Gaultier, in front of Moschino’s New York boutique and between Rasta models at John Galliano‘s men’s show last year. To fete the exhibition, La Mer held a preview luncheon at the trendy cafe at L’Inde Le Palais in Bologna, where the photos will hang until the end of November. Tutta Bologna flocked to the affair, including Alessandra Gaggia, Alessandra Zucchini Solimei, Roberta Rossi of LVMH-owned Rossimoda, Lalle Gazzoni and Januaria Piromallo.
WINTER WARM-UP: Steve and Christine Schwarzman opened their magnificent Manhattan apartment at 740 Park Avenue Wednesday night to kick off the Winter Antiques Show. As guests milled about the grand rooms with champagne tightly in hand, Arie Kopelman spoke about the importance of the East Side House Settlement, the organization benefited by proceeds from the show. Steve Schwarzman, meanwhile, was enjoying the company of his teenage daughter, Megan, who came down from upstairs to peruse the scene. “She works at the show,” he joked, engaging in the time-old tradition of parents embarrassing their kids. “I’ve never seen her before in my life.”
