Fashion Scoops: Gucci Gone Wild... Crystals On The Runway...

Gucci will launch its new men's fragrance Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme on June 23 with one of the biggest bashes during Milan's Men's Fashion Week.

B ROYAL: France's Agnes Trouble — better known as agnès b. — is going royal. The designer, known for her hip sportswear, won a contest to dress the personnel at the Château de Versailles. A spokeswoman called the collection inspired by the Sun King's style, but with a modern twist. Trouble will present the uniforms to the press next week. On that occasion, the designer will be decorated Officer of Arts and Letters in a ceremony at the Grand Trianon.

ROOM WITH A VIEW: For a city full of both nightlife and glittering vistas, Los Angeles has precious few nightspots with views. At Jason Pomeranc's Thompson Beverly Hills, the debut of ABH (short for Above Beverly Hills) should fill that gap nicely. A teak bi-level deck surrounded by infinity glass offers a 360-degree view of the city, but the stargazing should also be ample. On Saturday, Gucci will host the first fete, honoring Rihanna and Joe Zee. Rashida Jones, Mika Kelly, Becki Newton, Camilla Belle and others will be on hand for a sit-down dinner on the upper cabana-lined pool deck, while a few more will join in for after-dinner festivities at the bar below, which features a 20-foot palm tree (which had to hoisted up the outside by crane) and a private dining room and living room.

WITH HONORS: Stan Herman designed quite a few uniforms in his career, but he never actually made a graduation outfit. It would have come in handy this weekend. Herman is receiving an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Cincinnati, his alma mater. Herman will be accompanied to the ceremony by Jeffrey Banks, and will address the crowd at the university's graduate fashion show. "I will put on the cap and gown, and it will be very nostalgic," Herman said. "It's been a long time since I put on a cap and gown. It rained on my graduation, and the wet blue gown came off on my white shirt. I kept the shirt for years. It was the first tie-dye shirt I ever owned." Herman isn't the only one excited about the honor. "It makes my father extremely happy," he said. "He had to wait to 104 to have a son who is a doctor."
