HIP OR HIP REPLACEMENT?: Christopher Kane may have wanted to wind down after his show Monday, but turning up the lights at his after party might have been a smart idea. His relatives — perhaps more Berkeley Hotel than BoomBox — had a tough time negotiating trendy club Bungalow 8's atmospheric stairwell, requiring assistance just to reach the basement bar. Bright young things attending the Dazed & Confused-hosted fete, including Kelly Osbourne and Kimberly Stewart, politely stepped aside to make way for the convoy. Meanwhile, despite their fashion sway, Henry Holland and Agyness Deyn queued outside.
OFFICE PARTY: Assistant to the regional manager Dwight Schrute, aka actor Rainn Wilson, got to be head honcho for a brunch Saturday hosted by Coach at the Raffles L'Ermitage Beverly Hills honoring his work for the Mona Foundation. Wilson, mingling with "The Office" co-stars Jenna Fischer, Rashida Jones and Angela Kinsey, didn't let the promotion go to his head — he was too busy figuring out how to remove chocolate from the Hugo Boss pants he planned to wear again to parties later that night. Jones was not as sartorially challenged: Her white Alberta Ferretti number was stain-free.
DYLAN STYLE: Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Bob Dylan in the upcoming film "I'm Not There" will come with its share of fashion. Blanchett will wear a Belstaff jacket throughout, which the Italian label has designed for the movie.
"The costume designer [John Dunn] wanted to re-create the authentic jacket that Bob Dylan wore in so many iconic images — the original fabric, color and style," said Belstaff creative director Manuele Malenotti of Dylan's signature suede jacket with flap pockets, which the company re-created for Blanchett.
