DUTCH MUCH: Viktor & Rolf's new managing director, Joost van Vollenhoven, made his debut at the Dutch duo's fashion show Tuesday. He said he's still getting his feet wet in the fashion business after 12 years at consumer products giant Unilever. Van Vollenhoven started his career in Unilever's detergent division and moved to the savory foods business in 2004, for which he was marketing director in Holland. "I'm still learning," he demurred.

Actress Aïssa Maïga said she's turning down film roles to write her first screenplay. "It's to be filmed in Mali," said the striking French actress of Malian and Senegalese descent. Maïga, who made her name in "The Russian Dolls" and has two films out next year, is lending support to budding designers, too. She will be the guest of honor at Ethical Fashion Show in Paris next week. And lensman Mario Sorrenti disclosed he's working on a travel book of sorts to be released next year. "It will feature photos of road journeys across the States that I've made over the last five years," he said.
