KOKOSALAKI TO FENDI?: Sources in London say Sophia Kokosalaki might be headed for Fendi. A spokeswoman for the designer denied the rumor Thursday, and Fendi’s offices in Milan were closed for a national holiday.

IN-DENTURED SERVITUDE: Could footwear magnate Steve Madden’s substance abuse issues be haunting him? Or is he avoiding the John Gotti family complaint that prison dental treatment is subpar? Manhattan federal district court Judge Kimba Wood has approved Sept. 18 as the new surrender date for Madden at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. As reported, Madden was seeking a delay for medical treatment. According to court papers, Madden is getting caps and crowns, as well as fillings for cavities. He also will be getting root canal, plus implants after two teeth are extracted. That’s not all: Madden will be receiving surgery to correct a deviated septum. Also on the agenda is treatment to "calm the visible effects" of rosacea.
