Denise Richards arrived with two princesses of her own, her daughters, Lola and Sam. "I couldn't turn down this party. It's princess-themed, at Quincy [Jones'] home, and benefits the Boys & Girls Club."
Jones said her next projects were likely to be Bambi and another Tinkerbell collection, with colors and images inspired by Marie Antoinette.
PURSUING PARKER: Sarah Jessica Parker is no diva. After her car was rear-ended by overeager London paparazzi en route to present Covet, her latest fragrance, to the press, her sense of humor remained intact. "It's very exciting and very flattering," she said of the skirmish. It's clear the diminutive actress is made of stern stuff, as evidenced in Covet's advertising, which was shot by Jean-Paul Goude and shows Parker high-kicking a window in order to get to a bottle of the scent while wearing a Christian Lacroix couture gown and a pair of Christian Louboutins. "I wasn't even worried about the shoes," she recalled with a smile. "I was worried about my hip flexors."
MALO BARGES IN: The fashion crowd always makes the scene at the Venice Biennale, but this year Malo plans to be seen and heard — as far as New York. The Italian label has partnered with the Long Island City, N.Y., art center MoMA/PS1 to sponsor the barge that will house the Malo/WPS1 radio station, which will air Biennale-related info as well as interviews with artists and curators. The Biennale gets under way today in Venice. With the alliance, Malo aims to reinforce its commitment to art while sharing art with the greater public, according to chief executive officer Vittorio Notarpietro. "For years, Malo has been a quiet patron of contemporary art. We understand that it is important to give these artists a forum as well as share this incredible contemporary work with our customers," he said. The company also is updating its stores to give them more of a boutique-gallery feel that showcases the work of artists such as Giacomo Balla, Julian Schnabel, Louise Nevelson and Allen Jones beside Malo's collections.
