A SLEEPY AFFAIR: Designers can get away with wearing anything — almost. Case in point: Christian Louboutin arrived at Barneys for his appearance Friday dressed in his pajamas. However, before tending to top clients with lunch at Fred’s and helping other shoppers pick out custom Louboutin shoes, the designer had his trousers hemmed in-house and changed into a dapper ensemble.
STEALING SOZZANI: Burglars broke into Carla Sozzani’s Milan home late Saturday night and stole her prized earring collection, according to a Sozzani spokeswoman. Valued at more than $250,000, the one-of-a-kind earrings had been collected for 37 years and consisted of several antique pieces dating back to the Victorian era. Sozzani, owner of the tony Milan boutique/gallery Corso Como 10 and sister of Italian Vogue editor in chief Franca Sozzani, was returning from a weekend in London when the thieves hit and was not at home during the burglary. Sozzani, in an interview with the Italian paper La Repubblica, said that many of the earrings were made of black pearls and went on to warn those who committed the robbery: "To steal jewelry with pearls brings misfortune."
SOME GIRLS: In Los Angeles for three Rolling Stones shows this last week, Sir Mick found time was on his side when it came to the local ladies. Long-legged, thirtysomething stylist L'Wren Scott draped the relatively diminutive 59-year-old rocker at Sunday’s afterparty for the Rolling Stones Rockware fashion show, featuring barely clad models in Agent Provocateur knickers and Chrome Hearts leather. Though Jagger and Scott have been linked for months, he arrived at the tail end of Jacqui Getty’s Halloween party only four nights before with another overly friendly Angeleno, actress Gina Gershon.
