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 grew up in New York but I hadn’t really experienced the city in any type of touristy way…This was probably the first museum I really explored and took the time to see,” said @haileybaldwin of the @whitneymuseum.

“I learned then and there that I had to figure out a way in life to maintain and preserve my sense of pride when I felt good about what I did or what I represented or created,” said @saintrecords on how being bullied for wearing capri pants inspired her to be the artist she is today.

“There’s this amazing braintrust of people who know the whole universe so well.

“I’ve struggled my whole life to find a bathing suit that fits me that doesn’t look like a maternity bra. I’m proud of the line because it’s an accurate representation of me rather than me putting on someone else’s clothes,” says @atlantabean of her swimwear collaboration with @piaarrobio, LPA X ATL. The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces.
