HAVE GOWN, WILL TRAVEL: It looks like the July couture shows will be a movable fashion feast. Not only is Valentino inviting the high-fashion flock to Rome for his 45th anniversary blowout on July 7, word has it John Galliano will show at Versailles for Christian Dior’s 60th anniversary festivities on July 2 — the Orangerie, to be exact. Models have already been instructed to arrive as much as eight hours in advance of the spectacle. Dior is no stranger to Versailles, having staged its landmark “Matrix” couture show at the Orangerie in 1999.

CAMERA READY: For the 2007 CFDA Fashion Awards coming Monday, several of the films prefacing the awards were made by such high-profile names they could give this year’s Cannes entries a run for their money. Photographer Nick Knight created the short for the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, re-creating a fashion shoot with model Agyness Deyn wearing one look each from nominees Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. He filmed the sequence on a Webcam to live feed it to his Web site Showstudio.com. Art photographer Ryan McGinley, meanwhile, shot the movie for this year’s Swarovski nominees, combining photographs and an on-location shoot in Woodstock, N.Y., with a cast of people. But the pièce de résistance could well be Mike Figgis’ film introducing Patrick Demarchelier, this year’s Eleanor Lambert Award recipient. Figgis, who directed movies like “Leaving Las Vegas” and “Timecode,” filmed the photographer on a shoot with Uma Thurman. Figgis captured their banter, as well as Thurman’s anecdotes of working with Demarchelier, who shot her for the first time when she was 15.

GOT YOUR BACK: The pre-crowning ousting of Miss Mexico in Sunday’s Miss Universe pageant caused the Mexico City crowd to get so riled up that bodyguards were said to have been brought in for Michelle Kwan, Marc Bouwer, Nina Garcia and the other judges. The fact that Miss USA Rachel Smith took a tumble helped ease the tension, but the home crowd still booed her. Bouwer suited up mistress of ceremonies Vanessa Minnillo, but the event’s winner, Miss Japan Riyo Mori, went home with a Tadashi wardrobe. Before the show, several contestants were said to have thrown caution to the wind, drinking the water for diuretic purposes to assure they fit into their evening gowns.
