After Jenni Kayne’s runway show on Friday, her boyfriend, L.A. realtor Richard Ehrlich, threw a late-late-night supper at his Coldwater Canyon home for her and 30 of their pals, including Peter Berg, Guy Oseary, Michelle Hicks, Lake Bell and Jason Bateman. Over mini Kobe-beef burgers and lamb chops cooked up by Food Network star (and the new executive chef for Song Airlines) Dave Lieberman, conversation revolved around the rumble that broke out after Kayne’s show. When Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis tried to make a backstage visit to his girlfriend, model Nika, a small legion of security guards — watching over the $10 million worth of Martin Katz jewels used in the show — blocked his way. Suddenly, the scene turned into a mosh pit full of bodies, leaving onlookers frozen in shock. Luckily, the only things bruised were a few male egos.

Earlier that day, and in a more civilized fashion, Adam+Eve designer Adam Lippes hosted a store event at the J. Ransom boutique on La Brea Avenue, where pal Brittany Snow dropped by to peruse the merchandise. Later that evening, Lippes, who’s the former creative director for Oscar de la Renta, invited 15 friends to a cozy dinner at the Chateau Marmont, where he chatted with Kiera Chaplin, China Chow, Paul Wilmot and Claudia Cohen about his plans to open his first store in New York’s West Village this fall. (Cohen’s fashion-savvy daughter, Samantha Pearlman, has just landed a new gig as a reporter for “Teen Kids News.”)

Rock & Republic kicked it into high gear on Saturday night with a runway show and party for 2,000 at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. Sean Stewart, Rod’s son, was one of the models who strutted down the catwalk, while the deafening Camp Freddy, fronted by Donovan Leitch and joined by the Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones and singer (and “Extra” co-host) Mark McGrath, jammed live. Rock & Republic’s new ska-inspired collection breaks the denim mold with plaid blazers, zip-up fur hoodies and leather skirts with cutaway fronts. Still, it kept to tradition by showing those denim micro-minis — so micro that bare bums were revealed.Sunday, it was back to the Chateau Marmont, where Aussie designer Melanie Greensmith showed her Wheels and Doll Baby lingerie collection in the penthouse. Nearly 100 guests showed up for the affair, where Nancy Sinatra and actress Marsha Thomason were spotted exclaiming over the tulle petticoat skirts and floral-print bustiers. Other guests included Blu Cantrell, Bai Ling, Bijou Phillips and Danny Masterson.
