Fashion Scoops: Fergie Gets Glam... Hunk Alarm... Party Hearty...

MAC Cosmetics has tapped Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson, the Grammy Award-winning singer, as the next Viva Glam spokeswoman.

The invite had asked for "Grub, Dancing, and Shenanigans," but sadly, only a few dared to be naughty. "My dancing days are over and I am wearing these," joked Iman, pointing to her towering Lanvin platforms.

Simon Doonan, meanwhile, claimed the most fun. "I got to go and pick up Ms. Iman," he said. "She's a laugh, so dry and hilarious. She should have her own television show. If they're all like her in Somalia, I am going there on my next vacation."

SEEING RED: Designers don't usually take kindly to being in the red. But in the name of charity, the likes of Stefano Pilati, Valentino, Marc Jacobs and Giorgio Armani were all game. These are just a few of the personalities, including Catherine Deneuve and Philippe Starck, who agreed to be snapped by Julio Piatti and Tom de Ruiter to raise money for the AIDS charity Sidaction. Each black-and-white portrait features a hand-painted red element — in Pilati's case, his pooch, and for Valentino, the column in Place Vendôme. The prints will be sold via a silent auction held at the HSBC bank on the Champs-Elysées from Nov. 13 to 15. The prints have also been assembled in a coffee-table book, "Le Fil Rouge," or The Red Thread, available from Nov. 8.

ART OF THE PRINT: Pucci is continuing its worldwide 60th anniversary celebrations with a dinner during Art Basel Miami on Dec. 5. Laudomia Pucci, Delphine Arnault and Matthew Williamson are jetting into town to host the affair at a private estate. The Italian brand will be bringing its own art to Florida: the house will be decked out with a specially commissioned installation by artist Gérard Cholot, which made its first appearance at the Palazzo Pucci in Florence earlier this year. "It makes so much sense for us to come to Miami," said Pucci, who is making her first expedition to the art fair. "Art Basel Miami is international but it's in America, and Pucci has that mention of something that is artistic and special.

"Personally, I love contemporary art," she continued, adding she hoped to have the time to visit the fair itself. Indeed, her schedule is packed — she'll be hosting a ladies luncheon the next day.
