BOOGIE NIGHTS: While there is no one handbag dominating the scene at the moment, Madonna has at least one she seems to favor--the star has been seen toting a new Celine chocolate brown "Boogie Bag," to and from her current acting gig at London's Wyndham Theater, where she is appearing in the play "Up For Grabs."The soft leather style, which retails for $1,050 and was designed by Michael Kors, was introduced this spring in three colors, and is being offered in various other materials and colors this fall. And Madonna's not the only celeb favoring the bag: Angie Harmon, Rene Russo and Gwyneth Paltrow also have been seen around town lately with Boogie on their arms.WHEN IN ROME: Escada will be showing as the Romans do. The German fashion house, which decided to discontinue its large-scale in-house fashion shows this season, will nonetheless be strutting the runway with 60 to 80 outfits for next spring. Escada has been invited by the Camera dell' Alta Moda in Rome to stage a solo show on July 16 to an audience of about 500 people at the Auditorio.And the catch? The Camera wants to boost German exposure of the Alta Moda events, and Escada is "obligated" to bring a number of German journalists and a non-Italian celebrity to Rome, which is hardly a problem, Escada chief executive officer Wolfgang Ley said. "The committee is being fantastically supportive and our own costs are minimal. So as a tribute to Rome, we will design six to eight evening dresses especially for the occasion," such as one, currently in the works, featuring three coins--and a fountain.CANDIE'S THIRD CELEB: Kelly Osbourne wouldn't let a broken arm get in her way at the Candie's shoot. Osbourne, who broke her arm after taking a spill on a rainy day, is the third celebrity that Candie's will feature in its fall ad campaign. She chose three outfits at the shoot that seemed to represent her style--including a bright pink blazer that perfectly matches the color of her hair, with a gold necklace that falls to her navel. Osbourne joins rising stars Ashanti and Vanessa Carlton for the print campaign.SEXY LEGS: Word is that Interview stylist Victoria Bartlett is about to launch a line of lingerie with designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra. Bartlett has translated her irreverent sexy attitude into work for companies such as Versace, Miu Miu and DKNY as well as numerous magazines. Costello has been designing since 1982 and, four seasons ago, teamed up with Tagliapietra to design a collection for private clients. The new lingerie venture is said to be dubbed "VPL," short, yes, for Visible Panty Line. But then, if the undies are pretty enough, why shouldn't they show?PARTY CENTRAL: Competition among Paris' department stores has reached such a zenith that they're even going head-to-head with special events--and the same one. On Wednesday, LVMH-owned Samaritaine and its Right Bank rival, Galeries Lafayette, will both host parties for artist Daniel Buren, whose exhibition opens the same day at the Pompidou Center of Modern and Contemporary Art. "We only learned Galeries Lafayette had something planned after we'd sent out invitations," lamented a Samaritaine spokeswoman. Both are hosting receptions on their respective rooftop terraces, albeit at different times of the day. Meanwhile, don't count Printemps out of the festivities. Although the store does not expect Buren to attend, it has planned a cocktail party the same evening to celebrate an electronic music compilation album."

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory.
