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."
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday.

@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

For pre-fall 2018, @etro created richly-colored wonderland, using tapestries, textiles and wallpapers from the Eastern world at large. The line featured floral and graphic prints and jacquard motifs, like this two-piece look featured here. #wwdfashion (📷: Giovanna Pavesi)
@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
