By Adam Tschorn Ashley Dupres Yigal maneuver Dupre, the aspiring singer who was at the center of the Eliot Spitzer call-girl scandal, turned up unexpectedly in the front row of designer Yigal Azrouëls runway show, which set flashbulbs popping, tongues wagging and, ultimately, heads rolling. Azrouël, who had not invited Dupre, promptly canned PR firm Peoples Revolution, which had given her the spot. Tabloids rumbled that Peoples owner Kelly Cutrone, fresh off a stint on The Hills, with a recently inked deal to develop her own reality show, had somehow orchestrated it all for the sake of publicity. (Cutrone, in the colorful language of sailors and longshoremen, denied the charge.) The funny thing is, the brouhaha has given the designer more name recognition than an uneventful runway show ever could have.
