CUT IT SHORT, REBECCA: Two nights ago, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos went to bed an actress and on Monday woke up a model. "I got a phone call this morning asking me whether I would accompany [Giorgio] Armani on the runway today. I was just supposed to be a guest at the shows, but it was like ‘Welcome to Milano’ — here I am on the runway. Glad I could be of service. I’d done some modeling before, but never for Armani," she said with a laugh backstage after the show. The dresses she wore during the show’s finale — black on the runway and red on the video backdrop that had been taped earlier — were originally floor-length, until Armani got a glimpse of Romijn-Stamos’ legs. "So he chopped the dresses. Just like that. And then he put the fabric around my shoulders like a shawl." Romijn-Stamos, who will star in the upcoming "X-Men 2", is headed for Paris after Milan. "Who knows, maybe I’ll get an invitation from (French president Jacques) Chirac."
Also attending his first Armani show, Kevin Kline was slated to meet the designer today, since Armani is costuming him for his next film, "De-Lovely", in which he plays Cole Porter. "Unfortunately, I didn’t see anything in the show I would wear," Kline deadpanned. "I tend towards the conservative. I think Cole Porter was a little flashier than I am."
