RIVIERA REVELS: Fashion Rocks, the televised, music-meets-fashion event that raised more than $1.8 million for The Prince's Trust, will take place once again — this time in Monaco. Two years ago, artists including Beyonce, Sheryl Crow, Robbie Williams and Grace Jones joined forces with designers including Giorgio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Stella McCartney for the first show at London's Royal Albert Hall. This time around, the event will be held at the Grimaldi Forum on Oct. 17, but will once again feature a series of simultaneous music performances and fashion shows. Dylan Jones, editor of British GQ and chairman of Fashion Rocks, said he was looking forward to the international take on this year's show. "We're going to be drawing on Paris, Milan and London this time around, and we're hoping to make it a weekend event, with parties at places like Jimmyz and on the boats docked there," he said. Swarovski is the official sponsor, and the company also plans to introduce a special Swarovski Fashion Rocks jewelry line. "It's going to be very fashion-driven and very rock 'n' roll — with a huge emphasis on rocks," said Nadja Swarovski, vice president for international communications.
VALLEY GIRL: All eyes were pointed downward Wednesday night at Amanda Scheer Demme's new Tropicana Bar at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel — and not because of the David Hockney mural painted at the bottom of the pool. The party was to celebrate the second-season premiere of the HBO comedy "Entourage," and most guests played it Hollywood cool; Nikki Hilton, girlfriend of "Entourage" actor Kevin Connolly, slinked around in a sparkly black Calvin Klein dress, while buddies Constance Zimmer and Tiffani Thiessen went with muted ebony ensembles by Juicy. But not so Serena Williams, whose uber-short, light-bright Dolce & Gabbana featured a loose neckline that plunged dangerously close to the equator. "You can't miss her," one guest hissed, "Dolce & Gabbana. WAY too small." Williams herself seemed to embrace the fuss, mingling and chatting easily about her love for the HBO show. "It's really hilarious," she said. At least, that's what we think she said. We were a little distracted.
