Was Rusty B finally checking herself in, her reps claiming “exhaustion” and “dehydration?” So it would have seemed on Monday afternoon as paparazzi swarmed beneath the windows of Friends of the High Line. In fact the paps were there for Isla Fisher, shooting “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” outside Scoop and across the street from Diane von Furstenberg.

Canadian boutique retailer Ports 1961 is opening their US flagship store in the Meatpacking District (here.) If Racked is correct, Ports’ February opening may be delayed. There is a lot more high-end retail on its way to the neighborhood. From The New York Post :
The final piece of the retail puzzle has been filled at Taconic Investment Partners’ 401 W. 14th St. in the Meatpacking District. Italian fashion designer Moschino has signed a lease for its first freestanding Manhattan boutique there, with 2,700 square feet tucked between the new, tri-level Apple store at the Ninth Avenue corner and Hugo Boss’s store to the west…The store will open this spring.
