Scoops: Cinema Verite … City Business … Tommy and the Tents

CINEMA VERITE: A film crew with cameras rolling. It's the hippest accessory to have at the shows -- and if you can't get the crew, at least get a famous director. Isaac Mizrahi, for one, is making sure he's covered on all angles of the film thing. He was making his way around the CFDA party Wednesday night with camera-toting Douglas Keeve, who's been working on a documentary about the designer for several months. Hollywood hasn't ignored Mizrahi either -- he's received requests for seats at his show from Oliver Stone and two associates of Robert Altman.
CITY BUSINESS: Nicole Miller had her share of the kitsch crowd Wednesday night, but she also flexed some political muscle. Mayor Giuliani's wife, Donna Hanover Giuliani, sporting one of Miller's printed silk baseball jackets, was sitting in the front row, along with Deputy Mayor Peter Powers, the number two guy at City Hall.
TOMMY AND THE TENTS: "I'll definitely do the tents," said red hot men's designer Tommy Hilfiger, who's hitting the shows this week. Hilfiger said he's attending a few shows to support designer friends and "to check out the whole tent scene. After all, now that I'm going into the women's business, I'll be doing one of these."
Hilfiger plans to launch his women's line with his first runway show for the spring '95 season.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
