The beautiful swimsuit designer found dead in a bathtub at the swanky Soho House was strangled and drowned, the Medical Examiner's Office ruled yesterday. Sylvie Cachay, 33, was found partially clothed in the overflowing bathtub in her room at the ritzy hotel early on Dec. 9. She was killed by a combination of strangulation and drowning, said an ME spokeswoman. Cachay -- who had attended the Paris School of Art and Design and started the swimsuit line Syla -- had wounds on her neck, bleeding in her eyes and a bite mark on her hand. Her boyfriend, Nick Brooks, whose dad is Oscar-winning songwriter -- and accused rapist -- Joseph Brooks, will likely face upgraded charges of murder. - NY Post

A mannequin dressed as party boy Richie Rich was stolen from the Dropout bash at Don Hill's Sunday night. The "deejay" is usually a mannequin dressed up as a celebrity seated behind a laptop computer with a programmed playlist. One partygoer told us, "The crowd" -- including Rich himself -- "was wild and dancing late when two guys apparently rolled the mannequin out the back exit like a drunk date." Organizers were reviewing security tapes to see if they could nab the thieves, but so far, "Richie" hasn't been recovered. A rep for the bar didn't get back to us. - NY Post

A mannequin dressed as club kid/designer Richie Rich that disappeared from Don Hill's two weeks ago has been found -- with its blond wig missing. We reported that the life-size plastic doll that sits behind the DJ booth was rolled out of the club by two unidentified men during Don Hill's Sunday-night Dropout party, but a source reports that it mysteriously reappeared intact and fully clothed at Don Hill's days later -- except for the wig. The mannequin will be in the DJ booth for the next Dropout party tonight.

PARIS - Paris Vogue says its editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfeld, has decided to leave after a 10-year tenure in which the French fashion monthly became "a worldwide reference and indispensable magazine." Under Roitfeld, French Vogue has lived up to its reputation for pushing the envelope and has continued to be much edgier than its more commercial U.S. counterpart, with lots of nudes and sometimes overtly sex-seeped or disturbing spreads. Roitfeld made waves with a recent shoot that featured supermodel Lara Stone in blackface, for example.
