CHECK YOUR SEAT, AND YOUR E-MAIL: Those attending Kenneth Cole’s men’s and women’s fashion show Feb. 7 better check their seat assignments — or risk ending up at the wrong show, literally.

BRUNO MAGLI BREAKS A LEG: Just kidding. But the shoe designer is getting into the Broadway spirit of things. To celebrate the opening of his newly designed penthouse showroom, he designed a limited-edition "La Boheme" shoe inspired by the character Musetta in Baz Luhrmann’s "La Boheme." At the kickoff party Monday night, Musetta will be on hand to perform in her signature shoes, and a percentage of proceeds from the sales will be donated to Broadway Cares.
THE UMA EFFECT: Uma Thurman helped put Prada on the map when she wore that filmy lavender gown to the Academy Awards in 1994, and she’s currently lending a little of her celebrity magic to another emerging Italian fashion house, Ermanno Scervino. While leafing through an issue of W, Thurman spotted the company’s ad, called them up and ordered two of their embroidered coats with fur trim. She even asked if they had any gowns she could wear to the Golden Globes. They didn’t, as it turned out, but they will if she needs one for the Oscars. "We’re hoping lightning will strike twice," said a spokesman for the company.

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory.
