LULU HAS LEFT THE BUILDING: Despite telling WWD last August that she was ready to take the reins over from Mom, Lulu Johnson, 27, is said to have "retired" from her position at Betsey Johnson. A source close to the family says that Lulu is looking into getting her MBA and possibly opening her own store. No word, so far, on what caused her departure.
CELEBS COME HOME: Still wondering where all the A-listers went? Cosmopolitan, of all magazines, managed to corral a few yesterday at a luncheon just blocks from tents for its Fun, Fearless Female awards. Sandra Bullock was suddenly in town to receive her reward, as were Laura Linney, Eve, Mandy Moore and Jon Bon Jovi (the token male). Asked where she was when we needed her, a Prada-clad Linney stuck up for herself with her appearance at Anne Klein Tuesday and murmured something about trying to catch Calvin Klein. Eve said, "I actually just got back. We’re going to [Carlos] Miele tonight," and Balenciaga and Baby Phat on Thursday. OK, great, but where’s the rest of them? Is New York over? "I don’t think it’s over," Eve said. "Maybe all the celebrities are just away?"
