We love Court, we really, really do. Especially now that we've learned she's a fan of Daily-et Christopher Tennant's tome, The Filthy Rich Handbook, which she studies "like the Talmud." Yes, really—in a dishy interview with TheFix.com: "Actually, these days I’m only interested in plutocrats. Like really, really rich guys. I’m determined to land one sooner or later. My favorite book these days is something called The Filthy Rich Handbook, which I study like the Talmud. The thing is, I think I can be a real asset to a wealthy man. I’ve always been a great girlfriend, but until recently I’ve struggled to stay single, because I had never been without a boyfriend before. It’s just my nature to couple up."

Mandy Coon attended Francois Nars' book party last night and we grabbed a moment with the lovely designer to confront her about her musical past. Are we the last to know?! 

 

We understand you used to be a back up singer. Is that public knowledge?

Yes! 

 

Tell us more! 

It was during the Electroclash years. I can't believe I'm even saying that word now. Ten years later...I'm showing my age. It was more performance art than a band. We toured everywhere.

 

Is this out in the press?

It's been mentioned! But it's old news.

 

What's new news then? 

I'm writing an opera! (laughs) Nah. That would be big news.

 

What are your plans for the summer?

I'm working on next season. I need to go away some weekends. The summer is actually a really busy time. 

 

Where would you be most likely to go?

I might go to the Hamptons to DJ a couple of times. It's an excuse to go out there. And I'm hoping to go to Tulum. 

 

What kind of music do you DJ?

Some new wave, some post-punk, some disco. A little new stuff.

 

Were you a raver when you were younger?

I went through that phase, yes.

This is what we'd call the money shot! NARS celebrated Francois Nars' new beauty book Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself last night, and a slew of fashion legends came out to celebrate him. The maestro is surrounded by Marina Schiano, Grace Coddington, Anna Sui and Calvin Klein. Impressive!

Thanks to JetBlue Airways' Celebrity Baggage charity auction, 50 famous musicians, actors and athletes have donated signed carry-ons, party purses, briefcases, guitar cases and other (not emotional) baggage too! Among a few of Chic's faves? Diane von Furstenberg's leather Harper daybag--little, black, chic!--and Chelsea Handler's red Tumi tote what comes full of pics and tickets to her show. Some other amusing choices: La Lohan's pony covered LeSportsac complete with a Lindsay My Scene doll, DJ Pauly D's rolling luggage filled with hair gel (natch) and even Cindy Adams' Sherpa Pet carrier, which comes with a signed photo. And that's just to name a few (think The Donald, Molly Ringwald, Melissa Rivers) for this first batch of baggage being auctioned off on eBay with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting JetBlue's charitable partner DoSomething.org. A second wave of celeb collectibles will be released May 31 with everyone from blonde songstresses Taylor Swift and Jessica Simpson to vampy hunks like True Blood's Ryan Kwanten and Twilight's Kellan Lutz offering up their goods. Bidding is open today through June 6 at jetblue.com/celebbaggage.
