BUNGALOW BUNCH: The more stalwart members of the fashion flock ducked the torrential downpour and made their way to Bungalow 8 after the CFDA Fashion Awards Monday night. Kate Moss and Daria Werbowy emerged from the 'loo together in a fit of giggles and spent the rest of the night dancing and getting cozy with a Ralph Lauren-clad Johnny Knoxville. Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were huddled on a banquette, while Esteban Cortazar spent the night forlornly dancing by himself. Margherita Missoni smooched her tall, dark-haired beau with gusto; Roopal Patel, Rafe Totengco and Peter Som boogied by the bar, and more sedate revelers like Doug Lloyd and Aerin Lauder made an early night of it — by Bungalow standards anyway. P. Diddy sauntered in toward the end of the night, sans entourage, and passed out large black invitations to a select few, including Stella Schnabel and Eva Mendes. Once a promoter, always a promoter, we guess -— although goodness knows what the invitations were for. Mandy Moore, meanwhile, opted instead for the quiet emptiness of Soho House.
FROM STAN TO DIANE?: Who could possibly replace Stan Herman as the CFDA's president? The question is on everyone's lips these days as Herman, who has served in this post since 1991, is expected to step down in October 2006. Joseph Abboud is said to have expressed interest in the position, but the latest speculation is that Diane von Furstenberg, this year's CFDA Lifetime Achievement award recipient, is a front-runner. Von Furstenberg, a CFDA board member and part of the committee that is to elect a new president, was full of praises for Herman when reached on Tuesday. While she wouldn't confirm or deny the speculation, she said her fashion business keeps her fully engaged these days.
"There is no sense of anybody being a front-runner," said Peter Arnold, CFDA's executive director. "I am sure there are a number of people who have expressed an interest. Nothing will happen until October 2006."TOD'S WINNING PICK: Diego Della Valle should be particularly pleased about Derek Lam taking home Swarovski's Perry Ellis award for women's wear. The Tod's Group chairman and chief executive officer tapped Lam to design apparel pieces such as a leather jacket, a trench, a blazer and trousers under the Tod's moniker for the spring-summer 2006 season.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
