A FAMILY AFFAIR: "Teenagers can be very hard to reach," said Neil Cole, chairman and chief executive officer of Iconix Brand Group. "I know: I have two." Cole made the quip to a crowd of hundreds at Thursday night's The Event to Prevent, which was indeed a family affair, designed to advocate waiting to start a family. The benefit, complete with performances from Jennifer Hudson and Jackson Browne, was held at Cipriani's 42nd Street locale — "where money and cathedral meet," in the words of "Good Morning America" anchor Chris Cuomo, who hosted the event and who happens to be the brother-in-law of Neil Cole's brother, Kenneth Cole, also in attendance. "Neil is a smart guy. He's not just a successful guy; he's not just a handsome guy," Cuomo joked. "He is certainly the best-looking guy in that family….My brother-in-law, Kenneth, is like, 'What?'" Cuomo applauded the work Cole has done through the Candie's Foundation to help prevent teen pregnancy. Ciara, who has appeared in the ads, made a $20,000 bid on an auction package donated by Mark Badgley and James Mischka — an offer so generous that the design duo doubled the donation for a second bidder who matched the bid.

DESIGNER KICK: This year's Upstairs at the Library event at the 2007 CFDA Fashion Awards comes with some one-of-a-kind gadgets, courtesy of the night's sponsor, T-Mobile Sidekick. To mark the new partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, T-Mobile Sidekick asked several designers to customize Sidekicks, which will be displayed at the Upstairs event on June 4 and auctioned this fall to benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. Those who created special Sidekicks include CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Coach's Reed Krakoff, Cynthia Rowley, Betsey Johnson, Robert Lee Morris, Phillip Lim, Bing Bang's Anna Sheffield, Duckie Brown's Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, Subversive's Justin Giunta and Rag & Bone's David Neville and Marcus Wainwright.
