Karl Lagerfeld, Hogan to Draw VIPs...

Expect a flash flood of VIPs tonight when Karl Lagerfeld unveils his second collaboration with Italy’s Hogan brand, part of Tod’s Group.

FAMOUS FRIENDS: A little seating glitch at the Zac Posen show Thursday helped Elle honchos Robbie Myers and Joe Zee better define the nature of their relationship. When there was no apparent seat for Zee, the magazine’s creative director, a public relations rep for Posen suspiciously studied both his and Myers’ invitations. Things weren’t looking too promising for Zee. Myers politely expressed a desire not only for Zee to be seated, but for the two well-known colleagues to sit together, as they always do. The p.r. searched for some kind of rationale: “Are you friends?” she asked.

Befuddled and amused, both Myers and Zee answered in the boldest affirmative: “Yes…we’re friends!” It didn’t work though. After a fretful scramble by Posen reps, Zee was plunked down with his competitors at the end of the row, about 10 seats away from his friend (and editor in chief).
