YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE:Riley Keough may have been a fashion spectator in Milan, taking in the Dolce & Gabbana show and party, but she’ll be a working girl in Paris. Keough, the granddaughter of Elvis Presley, is expected to walk Christian Dior’s runway today — wearing a jacket especially designed for her by John Galliano. As reported, Keough is the face of Dior’s new push into tailoring and will appear in the ad campaign later this year.
RIGHT AWAY: Loulou de la Falaise, who usually shows her signature ready-to-wear collection on the sidelines of couture, is poised to be a newsmaker during Paris Fashion Week, too. The designer, who launched her fashion house a year and a half ago with a boutique on Rue de Bourgogne, is said to be zeroing in on a second Paris location — this time on the Right Bank. She’ll also be showing her spring wares by appointment all week.
COAST TO COAST: Saks Fifth Avenue is planning a bicoastal celebration of its Key to the Cure campaign this month, organizing a party in New York next Tuesday and another in Beverly Hills on Oct. 14. The New York event will be staged at Gotham Hall, hosted by nightlife maven Amy Sacco and actress Claire Danes, while the Beverly Hills event will take place at the home of Jaime and Steve Tisch for about 250 guests, including expected appearances by Courteney Cox Arquette, David Arquette, Mischa Barton and Reese Witherspoon. Rita Wilson and Kate Capshaw, chairmen of the Women’s Cancer Research Fund, are planning to attend both events by flying with the Tisches on their private jet from New York to L.A., as it’s all for a good cause — a percentage of sales through all Saks channels from Oct. 14-17 will be earmarked for women’s cancer-related charities.
