FLIGHT PLANS: The haute fashion flock, who take the Concorde to Paris for the collections, got quite an eyeful on the plane Wednesday. There, amidst Steven, Anna and Kal, was Michael — as in Jackson. The King of Pop wore sunglasses, a hat and a Tonto-like mask throughout the flight. He was friendly, however, and struck up a conversation with both Wintour and Ruttenstein, who showed Jackson an advance copy of Vogue’s April issue. On the cover: Lisa Marie Presley, apparently looking just like her father.
“I want to be on the cover of four magazines simultaneously, including Vogue and Vogue Bambini,” Jackson told Ruttenstein. When Kal pointed out that Vogue was actually a women’s magazine, Jackson replied, “I know. That’s the edge!”
SOUNDSTAGES: British music has invaded the French runways, with the soundtrack from “Trainspotting,” the gritty new movie about Glasgow heroin addicts, showing up at several major shows, including Chloe. A pumping dance beat — straight from the hippest London gay clubs — is also very popular. Rifat Ozbek had some of the most throbbing, while John Galliano had a dreamy kind of disco. Helmut Lang, meanwhile, went for a more cerebral kind of English club music: Jungle.
