FRONT-ROW COUPLE: The couple that plays together stays together. New Bebe spokesmodel Rebecca Romijn was front and center at the Collection Bebe show Sunday night at Smashbox Studios, with fiancé, actor Jerry O'Connell by her side. "Neither of us go to very many fashion shows," Romijn said. "But now I have a different perspective watching all the clothes come out. I am thinking about the things I would most like to wear, like that long red dress with a little bit of leather. You gotta love a little leather." The model-actress, who just shot the fall campaign in Los Angeles, added that O'Connell also gave her a few nudges when his favorite looks came down the runway. "But really, my favorite thing about fashion shows is the pictures they take of us in the front row," the actor said. Joining the couple in the front row were Eva Longoria, Devon Aoki, Lydia Hearst and Virginia Madsen, whose personal picks were a printed peace sign top and a green duster coat.

BACK IN THE SADDLE: Eisbar co-founder Bobby Benveniste didn't rest much after last spring's final shipment of his Los Angeles-based graphics-inspired line. Kritik, his latest apparel creation formed with a team including Lizzie Grubman's former partner, Jonathan Cheban, hits Lisa Kline in Los Angeles, Sharon Segal in Santa Monica and Intermix in New York in less than two weeks. "It's all about California casual-meets-East Coast prep," Benveniste said in between fashion shows at The Standard Downtown during Kitten Fashion Week. "This time our inspiration is more Ralph Lauren than rock 'n' roll." That means a knitwear collection of dresses, shorts, tops and hoodies in bright solid colors. Could a fashion show follow for Kritik? "In L.A., I think the money for a fashion show could be better spent on a party to promote the line," he said, no doubt betting on Cheban's insights learned from Grubman.
