KELLY BENSIMON’S NEXT CAREER MOVE: Kelly Bensimon, wearing Céline, was at Luis Antonio’s show Saturday with daughters Teddy and Sea. “I loved the show. I’m a big fan of beautiful, feminine silhouettes,” she said, noting she is covering the shows for her weekly amNewYork column. “I’m looking for designers with a strong voice, as well as for style inspiration for me,” she said.
A graduate of Columbia University, Bensimon is working on her M.B.A. She’s also looking for designers with a strong voice for another reason: “I want to help people, but not to help with incubating firms. I want to launch companies instead.”
