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.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion
@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. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

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.
