A Baby for Tina, Will & Kate’s Threesome & Sarko’s Flying Fists

April 08, 2011

Look, even government leaders can get pissy sometimes. According to a dishy new biography of Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president was so enraged by an article calling his wife Carla Bruni a “maneater” that he threatened to smash in the editor’s face. Sarkozy also supposedly said “I’m sure you’d blow your top if I wrote that your wife was a whore that everyone had slept with and even wanted to have sex with your children.” Apparently Carla herself smoothed over the conversation, saying “Forgive him. But Nicolas is so in love, you understand. He cannot bear that people write this kind of thing about me.” Beauty trumps all. Of course.

How much is that Daphne in the window? Fashion’s quirkiest muse, Daphne Guinness, will take up a post in the windows of Barneys for an art installation honoring the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. The windows will also showcase her wardrobe in the six-week exhibition “Fashion as Art” tied to the Costume Institute Gala’s May exhibit “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.”

We have a fun little fashion catfight on our hands. Christian Louboutin is suing Yves Saint Laurent for mimicking his copyrighted red-soled shoes. In a 27-page lawsuit, Louboutin alleges that reproducing his shoes—trademarked since 1992—will cause “confusion, mistake, and deception among the relevant purchasing public.” He also namedropped a few of his famous fans—Sarah Jessica Parker, and the Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl crew among them.

After Prince William and Kate Middleton finally—finally—wed in front of the entire world on April 29, one might imagine they’ll want to relax in privacy. Instead, they’re moving in with his younger brother. The royal couple has a handful of homes to choose from, yet for a while will hang out at a suite at Clarence House in London, where Harry lives part-time when not away with the Air Corps. Nothing more romantic than newlyweds shacking up with the bachelor brother.
