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.
