Edward Albee's "Seascape," which won the Pulitzer in 1985, opens for a new run on Broadway Nov. 21, the Booth Theatre. George Grizzard heads the cast.
Elettra Wiedemann is the new "face" of Bill Blass' fall '05 ad campaign. She's a stunner-they showed her off last week at L'Olivier in N.Y.

Dryansky of Conde Nast Traveler, Emanuel Ungaro, Chuck Mitchelmore from the International Herald Trib, Jean-Pierre de Lucovich and others from the days when we were all young and brave (and half of us were in the CIA with Clair George and Bill Koplowitz) and were going places.
