Fashion Scoops: Blonde Ambition...

As if the New York party schedule weren't packed enough next week, Donatella Versace is jetting into town to bring a little of la dolce vita to fashion week.

KNOCK OUT: Cynthia Rowley was just hoping for a little downtime last weekend. The designer was spending her pre-fashion week free time at her home in Montauk on New York's Long Island and set out on Sunday to do a little wakeboarding with hotelier Sean MacPherson. Before she knew it, she was in a dentist's chair having her three front teeth replaced after MacPherson accidentally knocked them out. "It was a total accident and not his fault, but I think he might be just a little jealous that I get more air than him," Rowley said.

VEERING LEFT: Paris' Left Bank is about to welcome a major Costes restaurant, and it's bound to be a magnet for fashion folk. The 200-seat eatery is already under construction on Place Saint Germain des Près and slated to open early next year with a Christian Liaigre interior and live jazz and blues in the evening. Still unnamed, the restaurant will be operated by Jean-Louis Costes, and Alex Denis, the affable, strapping front man of one of the Right Bank's favorite fashion canteens, L'Avenue, which last Friday had Yves Saint Laurent designer Stefano Pilati lunching within earshot of the likes of Christian Dior honcho Sidney Toledano and luxury consultant Concetta Lanciaux.
