A game of musical chairs is about to begin in New York’s glamour salons. While no one will officially confirm it, Frederic Fekkai is said to be leaving Bergdorf Goodman for Chanel’s new 57th Street flagship. Not only will Fekkai have several floors in the renovated townhouse, which is set to open in June, but Chanel, as has been reported in WWD, is also investing in the development of his beauty line. Bergdorf’s is reportedly looking for a high-profile replacement.
Most people think of St. Bart’s as a rather peaceful place, but that didn’t stop Marvin Davis from bringing bodyguards with him on a recent trip. Davis showed up one night at Maya’s — a funky seaside eatery — with a couple of his guards and a throne — his own chair, reinforced to hold his sturdy figure. Causing even more of a commotion, however, were Davis’s two glamorous yacht guests: Sean Connery and Sidney Poitier. Droves of vacationers walked by the boat — docked in the port of Gustavia — with hopes of spotting them. The award for the most beautiful yacht, however, goes to Giorgio Armani. The 210-foot wooden vessel was originally built for the Krupp family in 1929 and has been owned by both Loel Guinness and Robert Stigwood. The only problem was that the boat’s chef was French, so when Armani wanted pasta, he, or one of his Italian guests, had to make it.
