FROM LEGEND TO LEGEND: Ralph Lauren, who's receiving an American Fashion Legend Award at this year's Council of Fashion Designers of America's 2007 Fashion Awards, will have the honor bestowed upon him by a legend in her own right. Oprah Winfrey will present the special award to the designer, who is celebrating his 40th anniversary in business this year. It will be Winfrey's first time at the event, which takes place June 4 at the New York Public Library. Winfrey, who has her own Legends Ball to honor African-American women, has featured designers on her show in recent seasons. Could an Oprah special on Ralph be far behind?

COCO JOVO: Karl Lagerfeld continues to populate Chanel campaigns with famous women. The designer has selected model-actress-designer Milla Jovovich to pose for the brand's fall-winter handbag and accessories campaign. Diane Kruger is featured in Chanel's current campaign.

PUCCI'S RECRUIT?: Could colorful swirls be in Delphine Arnault's future? Speculation is mounting that Bernard Arnault's daughter could join the LVMH-owned Pucci brand in a top position. A spokesman for LVMH declined to comment. This year marks Pucci's 60th anniversary and the company will celebrate on May 19 and 20 in Florence with a retrospective installation at Palazzo Pucci and a party. Last month, Didier Drouet was appointed chief executive at the fashion house, replacing Catherine Vautrin, who is expected to be back on the scene in September.

AZZARO'S NEW BAG: Azzaro designer Vanessa Seward, who arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday for her annual spring sojourn to the West Coast and a dinner party hosted by Cameron Silver at Sunset Tower Thursday, revealed that the French house, now owned by the Spanish private equity firm Reig Capital, has inked a deal to produce handbags with Judith Lieber for spring 2008. "They won't be your typical jeweled minaudière, though both Azzaro and Lieber are known for their sparkle," said Seward, decked out in a new copper silk jersey cocktail dress with twisted gold lamé straps. "I think I have found a way to do a bag that is uniquely Azzaro." Though she remained coy, Seward dropped some clues about her next clothing collection: "I will be using some chiffon, and doing some minidresses and bohemian shapes. One of my inspirations is ‘Sweet Charity,' with a bit of danger, of course." The evening was a typical Continental-meets-Hollywood affair: actresses Julie Delpy, Radha Mitchell and Angie Harmon and stylists Tanya Gill and Tara Swennen sipped aperitifs and lounged on the terrace sofas overlooking the Los Angeles lights. "There is nothing subtle about me right now," joked Harmon, who wore a floor-length navy jeweled gown. "I am even wearing blue eye shadow to match my dress!"
