WORD ON THE STREET
Rock star romances, model citizens...

Sienna Miller hardly needs fellow Brit heartthrob Rhys Ifans to keep her warm while she shoots Hippy Hippy Shake in Ibiza, but London’s looking hotter still: Pete Doherty swapped one pretty mini for another (the lovely Irina Lazareanu) but Kate Moss doesn’t care… She’s bartering herself with rocker boys, and is supposedly already engaged to the Kill’s Jamie Hince.
GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS
With the Spice Girls reunion concert selling out in 38 seconds and Sex and the City: The Movie filming on our doorstep, the Jane Austin Book Club members better show some skin or throw back a couple of cosmos if they want to sell any tickets.
Chanel and Louis have unveiled their new cover girls: Keira Knightly—looking more Pride and Prejudice than Pirates—introduces classic Coco Mademoiselle to the new millennium, and Mikhail Gorbachev travels with Louis Vuitton luggage (shot beautifully by Annie Liebowitz in front of the Berlin Wall). Speaking of beauties, Christina Ricci was a host at the launch of ck Calvin Klein beauty in Milan, of which Mark Carrasquillo has just been appointed the company's global makeup artist.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW
At 100, Neiman Marcus will prove it’s not how old you are at a black-tie birthday soiree next Friday night, with Louis Vuitton’s Yves Carcelle, Manolo Blahnik, Vittorio Missoni, and more fashion big wigs jet-setting to Texas to honor Zac Posen. Further West, Elizabeth Taylor is getting a humanitarian award at Macy’s Passport’s 25th in Santa Monica, a fashion show and fundraiser to benefit HIV/AIDS research, where Brittany Daniel, Ali Landry, and more will see Dita Von Teese do her thing.
Chanel is typically too cool for Fashion Week fiestas, but it will make an obvious exception for Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola, who are hosting a little shindig after the French fashion house’s spring show this season. On the other side of town, supermodels Jessica Stam and Carmen Kass showed us there’s more to them than being really, really good looking: Last week, the two threw a party at Paris’ Le Baron to celebrate The Greenhouse, the world’s first environmentally-friendly nightclub. Opening soon in Chelsea, the space will boast recycled furniture and energy-saving disco bulbs.
