BYE BYE BROOKE: Brooke de Ocampo is swapping the gray skies of London for the heat waves of Buenos Aires. Today, de Ocampo, her husband, Emilio, and their four children will leave the British capital, where they've lived for the past five years, and start afresh in Argentina. Officially, they're moving for the Argentinean-born Emilio's property and agriculture business, but de Ocampo says there's more to the move. "We wanted to add a whole other dimension to the kids' lives," she says. "Now they can be with Emilio's family — and their 29 cousins — in Buenos Aires, and we can take them to see things like the whale migrations in Patagonia." For her part, de Ocampo will be working on projects for the London-based Albion Gallery of contemporary art, where she currently consults, and soaking up the Buenos Aires vibes. "It's a hip city, with a bohemian, sexy pulse — and a real soul," she says. "We're all really psyched for it. I'm ready to jump right in."

BEACH RETREAT: Stefani Greenfield is going for a triple play in the Hamptons with Scoop. Greenfield will open a 1,100-square-foot Scoop store today at 51 Newtown Lane, in the same building as her existing men's shop. The concept is a "wear now" store that's the quintessential beach boutique — from your djellaba kurta for day to a breezy strapless dress for evening — not to mention swimwear, beach bags and wedge espadrilles. "You come in at 4 and wear it at 6," Greenfield said. Not to mention not having to pack for the weekend.

DRAMA QUEEN: Miuccia Prada swept into London Thursday night to host an intimate evening with friends including Rem Koolhaas, Anish and Suzanne Kapoor, Maurice and Josephine Saatchi and Marc Quinn. The group saw Gael Garcia Bernal perform in "Blood Wedding" at the Almeida Theatre. Afterwards, Bernal, Kevin Spacey and Brooke Shields (who are performing in "The Philadelphia Story" and "Chicago", respectively) joined in the dinner for 40 in the back room at Cipriani.
