EYE ON THE PRIZE: Red carpet, or runway? Alas, Nicole Farhi has had to opt for the latter this weekend. The designer, who is married to the Oscar-nominated playwright Sir David Hare, shows her fall/winter collection Sunday morning in London. That left her little time to hop a plane to Los Angeles and watch her husband quite possibly pick up the best adapted screenplay Oscar for “The Reader.” “We tried to change the slot so I could run from backstage with my suitcase!” said Farhi. But the flight times meant she would not have arrived in time for the Oscars. “In the end, I decided to stay,” she said. “I am very sad. David told me not to stay up, but to sleep - and he will call if he wins.”
