LUCKY LADIES: Eva Longoria was clad in custom-made Chanel and Vera Wang and Boucheron jewelry when she wed basketball player Tony Parker this past weekend in Paris, but she didn't leave her girlfriends empty-handed. Her stylist Robert Verdi asked designer Rafe Totengco to create one-of-a-kind minaudières for each of Longoria's 10 bridesmaids to carry during the wedding reception. Crafted in anthracite water snake and adorned with smoky rhinestones, the clutches came personalized with each bridesmaid's initials. Totengco also made one as a gift for the bride, natch.

Her hunky B-baller didn't do so poorly either. Cole Haan outfitted Parker and his party, which consisted of nine groomsmen and the fathers of both Parker and Longoria. The men donned Cole Haan's custom-made black patent leather Air Lucarno Formal shoes and black calf-leather belts. The Air Lucarno Formal is a new style within Cole Haan's Men's State of the Art Collection. It's handcrafted in Italy, designed with hidden Nike Air technology — just in case there's a pickup game on the dance floor.

UPTOWN BOYS: Giancarlo Giammetti has bought himself quite the anniversary present: Pierre Bergé's sumptuous New York apartment on the 38th floor of the Pierre Hotel. "I'm going next week to meet with the [co-op] board," Giammetti, Valentino's longtime business partner, said before Saturday night's ball to fete the Roman house's 45th anniversary. "I've never had a New York apartment." Bergé put the two-bedroom corner suite on the block in 2004 after owning it for more than 30 years and has already sold the contents. In any case, Giammetti said he's "going to change everything." But he couldn't be happier about the Central Park location. "[Valentino] is just 10 blocks away," he said.

TEEING UP: Hussein Chalayan expects his exclusive line of T-shirts will attract shoppers, but not of the bricks-and-mortar ilk. The designer's new limited edition T-shirts are exclusively available at, the brand's Web site, which went live last February. The collection for men and women exists in four prints — called Nature Worship, The Blind, In Shadows and Ataturk — taken from past Hussein Chalayan collections. The Ts retail for around $90.
