PALM BEACH -- Not to be too refined about it, it's the tail end of the season in Palm Beach. But like the tail end of a comet, the resort is still managing to shoot off sparks. Their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess...

The models Maria has lined up include such covergirl sisters as Niki and Krissy Taylor, Sylvester Stallone's ex-girlfriend Jennifer Flavin, Cosmo covergirl Frederique, Sports Illustrated swimsuit beauties Roshumba and Vendela and Helena Christiansen. The fashion cognoscenti keeps hearing that Maria herself has been asked to model for some top designers around town, but the dear girl has said she is not going to do it, but thanks anyhow. At Thursday's Christian Francis Roth show -- again at the Josephine Pavilion at Bryant Park -- Karen Duffy of MTV will be dragging along her beau Dwight Yoakam to watch the girls go by. Duff, so cute herself, has nothing to fear. And Dwight's promised to take his hat off. Also in attendance will be Lee Radziwill, Nina Griscom, Patty Raynes, Carol Mack and the Miller girls again.

To get back to Princess Michael of Kent for a minute, she'll be lecturing at the Metropolitan Museum Thursday and going to a dinner afterwards that Lee Thaw is giving at home for her and Prince Michael. Barbara Tapert is giving a lunch for the Princess at Mortimers on Friday. And that, dear readers, will just have to hold you until Mercedes Bass gives a party for 40 at Carnegie Hall Saturday night to celebrate husband Sid's birthday, and Sid gives a party for 100 on stage at the Metropolitan Opera on Sunday night to celebrate Mercedes' birthday. It's a double your pleasure, double your fun, tit-for-tat and all that thing.
