Diamond and Dollars... Winging to Rio... Armani in Moscow...

Christie’s New York jewelry sales held on Wednesday brought in more than $46.5 million.

THE SOUTH AMERICAN WAY: The fashion flock is migrating south for the weekend. Donatella Versace, Francisco Costa, Riccardo Tisci and Marc Jacobs, along with a slew of models and musical performers, are touching down in Rio de Janeiro for Oi Fashion Rocks to be held Saturday night at Rio’s Jockey Club, though the party starts tonight with a charity dinner hosted by Versace at the Copacabana Palace to benefit Rio Solidário. If focusing international attention on Rio is the idea, Oi, the largest Brazilian telecommunications conglomerate, is ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games — Fashion Rocks promises to be a star-studded fashion and music affair, featuring Versace, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein’s fall 2009 runway collections paired with performances by Diddy, Ciara, Grace Jones and Mariah Carey, respectively. Of course, the idea is to spotlight Brazil, so there will be plenty of local flavor courtesy of designers Alexandre Herchcovitch and Lenny, as well as musical acts Stop Play Moon and Daniela Mercury.
