FIERY NIGHT: A handful of actors were forced to evacuate their homes in Los Feliz Tuesday night as wildfires damaged over 800 acres in Los Angeles' historic Griffith Park. Actress Rachel Bilson was among those forced to flee, as well as other celebrity homeowners in the area including: Christina Ricci, Kiefer Sutherland, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Meanwhile, in West Hollywood, guests at Brit designer Paula Thomas' dinner in the Chateau Marmont's penthouse took in the dramatic view. About 50 diners, including Diane Kruger, Marley Shelton, Courteney Cox, Minnie Driver and Michelle Hicks, were riveted by the flames, clearly visible against the black sky from the wraparound terrace. "I'm so sorry about the heat," Thomas kept telling her guests. Kelly Lynch and Mitch Glazer only managed to say hello before running out to tend their historic Richard Neutra home. Geena Davis and her husband, Reza Jarrahy, didn't even make it; they turned around en route to the party.

AIR FRANCE: If Ralph Rucci is planning to fly the coop from this fall's New York Fashion Week in favor of Paris' — that's the word on the street — he's not saying. The designer behind the Chado Ralph Rucci label is said to be planning to show in the City of Light in October, but company executives declined comment Wednesday. Paris is old hat for Rucci, who has been showing his couture collection there since Paris' Chambre Syndicale invited him to do so in 2002.

LILY OF LONDON: The launch of Lily Allen's collection of dresses for New Look Tuesday didn't attract quite the throng of fans who turned out to see Kate Moss flog her line at Topshop last week. However, guests at the party for the debut of the Lily Loves collection did get a performance of Allen's reggae-infused hits thrown in with their mojitos. The singer — who wore a variety of flouncy dresses throughout the evening — performed songs from her album "Alright, Still" on a temporary stage set up at New Look's Oxford Street flagship. In between sets, guests eagerly scooped up the dresses, which included a frilled, tiered strapless ballgown and printed smock dresses, all at a 10 percent discount. "My favorite is the black floral one I just wore on stage," said the pint-size Allen later in the evening. She also cooly dismissed comparisons with Moss' collection, saying, "We're two completely different people."
