[Vito Schnabel, Terence Koh, Richard Geoffroy. All photos by BILLY FARRELL for PMc] Six degrees of separation between artist Terence Koh and French President Nicolas Sarkozy: Koh, a painter, had his first NYC show curated by Vito Schnabel,  who presented the exhibit on East 75th Street in a space owned by Olivier Sarkozy, whose half brother happens to be Mr.Carla Bruni.  Ok, so that was three degrees, but still interesting, no? Schnabel and Sarkozy were joined by Marc Jacobs (with Lorenzo Martone, naturally), polo star Nacho Figueras (who seems to have taken being beat by Prince Harry in stride), and President of Moet Hennessy USA Mark Cornell, in a dinner in celebration of Koh's new book, "Flowers For Baudelaire".
