FashionWeek Roundup, Part the Third

As the swishy set slips into their mint hot chocolates -- via York Peppermint Patty -- in the chillier weather at Fashionweek, some serious scoop has been dropped. According to Fashionweekdaily, JLo will attend the informal presentation of Sweetface:

"With last year�s splashy debut under her belt, J.Lo�s Sweetface line is poised to get even sweeter. Nixing the runway in favor of an informal presentation on Friday afternoon, The Daily has learned that Lopez will not only be in attendance, but she�ll be integrated into the main act. Details remain mum, but show producer Alex de Betak revealed coyly, 'It�s very exclusive; she�ll be more than just there. She rarely makes herself available in this manner, and I wouldn�t miss it."

More Fashionweekdaily gossip here (i.e. Vera Wang to creative director at St. Johns?!). Also, according to Marilyn Kirschner's excellent -- and overlooked -- LookOnline:

"Diane Von Furstenberg left her West Village lair (the scene of last season�s fiasco which left several front row editors injured) and showed for the first time at the Bryant Park Tents to a packed and very social crowd including such guests as Diane Sawyer and hubby Mike Nichols. She called the collection �Working Girl� because, as she put it, 'I always wanted to be a working girl and live a man�s life�.I became one and hope to be one for a long time'. To �work� the theme, the models sauntered down the runway to the beat of Dolly Parton�s famous hit, '9 to 5' as well as Donna Summer�s 'She works hard for the money.'" More here.

From Entertainment Weekly's Popwatch:

"There are two reasons why Baby Phat mogul Kimora Lee Simmons' runway shows are always a hot ticket: outrageous clothes and countless celebrities. Her latest collection is a tastefully restrained interpretation of the intersection where street meets chic, but the tent at Bryant Park remained packed with her famous friends and family. Spotted among the multitude of bold-faced names: American Idol winner Carrie Underwood, R&B kewpie dolls Mya and Christina Milian, rapper Fat Joe, and, of course, Simmons' hubby Russell. Later, police arrived to maintain crowd control as throngs of invited guests were turned away from the unbearably congested afterparty at New York�s Boudoir, where KLS and Co. feted in a curtained-off VIP area, guarded by beefy men in black suits."
