Fashion Scoops: More Stars... British Invasion... Reading Material...

The guest list for tonight's Fashion Group International Night of Stars gala has been finalized, and there have been a few notable additions.

OUT TO DRIES: After 14 years as head of communications at Maison Martin Margiela, Patrick Scallon is moving on and joining Dries Van Noten in a strategic communications post. Scallon will be based between Paris and Antwerp, Belgium, where Van Noten's business is headquartered. Scallon's first mission will be Nov. 5, when he flies with Van Noten to Singapore for a fashion show sponsored by Club 21.

ROCK STAR STYLE: With the proliferation of party invites, dress codes have become increasingly creative, and increasingly vague. "Festive" has always been confusing enough, but guests attending the fourth annual Black Ball at the Hammerstein Ballroom tonight have been asked to "dress for Bono," in homage to the rock star who will be honored there. What exactly does that mean? Wraparound shades? Red for his [Red] campaign? Organic cotton? It'll be up to guests to figure it out, but we assume Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani already have their costumes ready for their live performances at the fete.
