DEACON AND DIEGO?: It's no secret that Gilles Deacon has been on Diego Della Valle's radar for months now. First, industry sources said the Italian owner of the Tod's, Hogan and Fay labels wanted the British designer for his Schiaparelli Collection. Now, it seems, Della Valle has other designs on Deacon. According to an industry source, Della Valle is talking with Deacon about designing Fay, his clothing label famous for its snazzy weatherproof overcoats, jackets and blazers. Although Deacon's collections, which show in London, usually have a couture bent, the designer is also known for turning his hand to tailored clothing. He is a consultant for the British tailored clothing label Daks. A Della Valle spokeswoman declined comment and Deacon was traveling and could not be reached.

MOVING PICTURES: Fashion snapper Peter Lindbergh is preparing for the screening of his first film, "Everywhere at Once," at the Tribeca Film Festival in February. The flick features 3,000 stills from Lindbergh's photo archive spliced with excerpts from Tony Richardson's "Mademoiselle," starring Jeanne Moreau. The Grande Dame also provides the voice-over narrative. Lindbergh spoke about the project in Paris Monday night at a party to unveil a Miss France photo calendar he lensed in aid of French charity ELA, for sufferers of the brain disorder leukodystrophy. The event, held at the Fnac music store on Rue de Rennes, was sponsored by PPR and attended by group honcho François-Henri Pinault and YSL boss Valerie Hermann. "I'd never seen a Miss France before, but I was positively surprised," said Lindbergh, surrounded by a gaggle of the former beauty queens. Meanwhile, Mario Sorrenti has done his own calendar for French Vogue, in partnership with Chanel fine jewelry.

A STICKY WEB: Designers may be all for expanding their presence on the Internet, but the Web can be a double-edged sword. On Tuesday, several London newspapers ran an image taken from Facebook of Giorgio Armani posing with Guede Rudy Hermann, a 20-year-old student from the Ivory Coast. Hermann was arrested in Germany this week after the murder this month of British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. He is the fourth suspect to be arrested. Hermann had posted the shot of himself with Armani, taken outside the Armani/Nobu Bar in Milan, on his Facebook page. In response, the Giorgio Armani press office issued a statement saying: "The photo from Facebook.com depicting Mr. Giorgio Armani with Mr. Guede Rudy Hermann was taken as a tourist photo at Mr. Hermann's request. Obviously, Mr. Armani has never known Mr. Hermann."
