PRESENT TENSE: "I'm pretending I'm a supermodel," Patrick Dempsey said before the Versace show Thursday night. The TV hunk said he's enjoying his role as the star of Versace's men's wear campaign, but confessed to feeling "more nervous" about fielding questions from the fashion pack and posing for the paparazzi than being a presenter at the Academy Awards on Sunday. Dempsey's next flick, "Made of Honor" with Michelle Monaghan, is due in theaters in March. In the meantime, Dempsey and Donatella Versace will be on Italian television on Sunday, guests of a popular (taped) talk show usually tilted to soccer. Megan Fox also took in the Versace show just before setting off to film "Jennifer's Body" in Vancouver, written by Diablo Cody, Oscar nominee this year for "Juno." The young actress has her idol tattooed on her right arm: Marilyn Monroe. "I'm not obsessed by her, but I really admire how she represents Hollywood," said Fox.
MUSICAL CHAIRS: "I put my foot down," Fergie said backstage at Dsquared on Thursday morning. "I wanted some time off to enjoy fashion week. It's a fun, creative outlet for me." Might she consider launching her own fashion line? "Possibly, but later. I'm absorbing it all for the time being," said the singer, who plans to attend the Oscars and then head to Tokyo for a performance on Feb. 27.
Later in the day at Dolce & Gabbana, American politics was Fergie's preferred topic, but she was split on whether to back Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. "Both. I would go for the tag team, the double card," she said.
Joining her in the front row were Lindsay Lohan, Sheryl Crow, Monica Bellucci, Fanny Ardant and Naomi Campbell. Crow was taking a break from promoting her new album "Detours," and said she hoped the designers might help with her next look on stage. "It would be fantastic if they did more of these patterned trousers with a slimmer cut and the cool feminine rock tops that they've done in the past."
Lohan — whose nude "Marilyn" pics for New York magazine have been burning up the Internet all week — is busy recording her latest album, which should come out "in less than a year," and is due to start working on "new films in April," though she wasn't offering specifics. She added she'd like to design handbags or shoes for a fashion brand — or even her own collection, "maybe down the line."
