ON THE MARC: FIT Museum deputy director/self-dubbed fashion historian Patricia Mears sits down with one of the style world's boy wonders, the inimitable Marc Jacobs, at FIAF's Florence Gould Hall. So many questions! Where does he get his inspiration from? What's it like balancing his personal lines with those he created for Vuitton? And how long does it take to get that kind of five o'clock shadow -- a day? Two days? Does he use special scissors? What? Fashion Talks: Marc Jacobs is at 7PM.
POINTE TAKEN: Our main complaint about ballet? Not enough duckfat. As the American Ballet Theatre presents its 13th annual gastro-benefit, expect this wrong to be righted: At Culinary Pas de Deux, sample fare from chefs from the likes of Gramercy Tavern, Kampuchea, and Tocqueville, washed down with libations from Apotheke's and Elizabeth's mixologists, as you take in original performances from the ABT's talented dancers. Pier 60, 7PM.
DEBUT: The first lady of France isn't the only supermodel with a guitar, you know. Karen Elson -- catwalker, Englishwoman, Citizens Band regular, Mrs. Jack White -- brings her gee-tar to (Le) Poisson Rouge tonight for her first! ever! solo show. The singer-songwriter will perform material from her folky just-out album "The Ghost Who Walks" (produced by hubs). 7:30PM.
