Meanwhile, word has it the boys have another high-wattage pop star lined up for their show on Thursday: Rihanna.
ALL IN THE FAMILY: Gucci Group chief executive officer Robert Polet finagled a last-minute invitation to Tuesday's Bottega Veneta show for his 22-year-old daughter, Anne-Christine. She said it was her first big show, despite a keen interest in fashion that may turn into a career. While getting her masters in international management at Bocconi University in Milan, the young Polet is enjoying fashion's highs and lows. Propped on her shoulder was a Bottega bag in caramel leather, but what about her taupe-colored knit dress? "It's Topshop, actually," she said.
ITALIAN JOB: Mischa Barton made a two-day stop in Milan mid-fashion week, accompanied by designer Giambattista Valli. "I only visit Italy when I'm with an Italian — they take you to all the best spots," she said Monday night at the T Magazine party, attended by the likes of Donatella Versace, Ennio Capasa and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. "I thought we were going to dinner, but we made a small detour." Barton, who just finished shooting "Assassination of a High School President" in New York, also caught Iceberg's show on Tuesday. The actress will start work on a new film next month, a psychological thriller called "Walled In." Capasa, on the other hand, has more civic priorities: He's working with the city of Otranto, on the coast of Puglia, to revitalize some areas of the city. "I'd like to do all of the city, but for now the project just covers one third of it," he said.
