Fashion Scoops: Land of Misfits... Hot Shot... Alphabet Soup...

LAND OF MISFITS: U.S. Open top-seed Justine Henin tends to play it safe with her tennis whites, but count on Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters to spin some heads with their center court attire come next week. And many stadium goers will be keeping their eyes on Jelena Jankovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Ana Ivanovic. Interestingly enough, organizers have turned to Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and perhaps the least expected guest, Tony Hawk, to headline Saturday's Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y. There will also be a few less athletically inclined guests, including Sean Kingston, Keke Palmer and former "Saturday Night Live" star Chris Kattan.

HOT SHOT: Seems Marc Jacobs isn't the only designer with a thing for fallen angels. Hedi Slimane, who dedicated a photo book to train-wreck rocker Pete Doherty, just posted two portraits of singer Amy Winehouse on his Web site — part of his online visual diary. Courtney Love is another favorite subject for Slimane, who seems to be concentrating on photography and art exhibitions in his post-Dior Homme career.

ALPHABET SOUP: As the inevitable stream of fashion week invites trickles in, here's another one to add to the heap. On Sept. 6, Margherita Missoni will help Rachel Zoe celebrate the publication of her new book "Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty & Everything Glamour." The evening will begin with a private-seated dinner followed by a cocktail party at, appropriately, Socialista. Will any of Zoe's loyal acolytes like Demi Moore, Liv Tyler and Jennifer Garner make an appearance?

START YOUR ENGINES: Yeohlee Teng was the only fashion designer whose work was featured in last weekend's Infiniti Gallery of Design at the 57th annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, Calif. Five of her fall looks were in the "Form Follows Emotion" exhibition, which was pulled together by Michael Gabellini and featured creations from Kohler, Bambu, Shu Uemura and others. Stretched fabric walls wrapped around the space like a sculptural ribbon, but the gallery's centerpiece, of course, was Infiniti's new G37 coupe.
