Front Row at Saint Laurent

By

Salma Hayek, Juliette Gréco and Miles Kane were among the guests.

MUSICIANS’ UNION: Hedi Slimane drew a crowd of musicians spanning several generations to his Saint Laurent show in Paris on Sunday night. “He really understands musicians,” explained Johnny Hostile, seated front row at the rock-studded event.

The musician and producer is working on an album with French singer Izia Higelin. “I built a studio at her house. Seriously, I’m a geek and I’m a nerd,” he quipped, adding that he also wrote the soundtrack for this year’s César Awards, the French equivalent of the Academy Awards.

Nicolas Godin has been branching out. “I just finished my first solo album, called ‘Contrepoint.’ It’s crazy, different from what I do with Air,” said Godin, adding he hopes to release the album before summer.

Miles Kane, seated next to him, was enthralled by the show’s soundtrack. “Great song – who’s that by?” the British rocker wondered, bopping to the sound of “General Education” by Froth.

Juliette Gréco, meanwhile, was reminiscing about the last time she saw Yves Saint Laurent. “He came twice to the Théâtre du Châtelet to hear me sing. Those were the last two times he ever left the house. It was so moving,” said Greco, sporting a lean black wool YSL coat from the Eighties.

Salma Hayek’s choice for the night was a navy tux by Saint Laurent. “It’s new, from the men’s collection,” she explained. The Mexican actress said she was ready to shoot again. “I’m very excited about a movie I’m going to do with an Italian director that I love. It hasn’t been announced yet, so I can’t talk, but I will play an Italian queen from the 1700s,” she divulged.
