CAUSE CELEB: Courteney Cox hosted a party at the Kitson Men store in West Hollywood on Thursday to help launch a line of T-shirts designed by Signorelli for Omnipeace, the product arm of Millennium Promise. All profits from the sale of the T-shirts, priced at $65 retail, are donated to Millennium Promise, which aims to eliminate hunger in Africa by 2025. Cox gave bear hugs to friends and family who popped by, including Casey Affleck, David Spade and Alexis Arquette. Cox's husband, David Arquette, hung out with a small group of friends away from the cameras. Signorelli and Omnipeace partnered with specialty store Scoop in New York the previous week for an East Coast launch of the T-shirts that was hosted by Naomi Campbell. Fred Segal and Tracey Ross, along with Kitson and Scoop, will carry the T-shirts.

MARGIELA HITS MILAN: Maison Martin Margiela, which will open a Beverly Hills boutique this summer, is already plotting its next move. The house will open its first store in Italy, on Milan's Via Della Spiga, come September. Margiela has 12 stores.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Mikhail Baryshnikov can still draw quite a crowd. In his first summer gala for his Baryshnikov Dance Foundation, chairs included Anna Wintour, Graydon Carter and Annette and Oscar de la Renta. Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang and Joan Didion also attended the Hell's Kitchen Dance performance (aptly named for the 37th Street and 10th Avenue studio), in which Baryshnikov made a rare performance with a troop of young dancers to raise funds for his arts foundation that supports the next generation of art.

SINGING STARS: Just before she skipped off to Glastonbury with her paramour Pete Doherty, Kate Moss found time to tip up for an evening of karaoke at London jazz club Ronnie Scott's on Thursday. The model joined musicians including Elton John, Bryan Adams, Mick Jones and Chrissie Hynde, who all auctioned off performances of an eclectic selection of hits to benefit the Hoping Foundation, which helps Palestinian refugee children. John's rendition of "Are You Lonesome Tonight" was the top draw, raising $220,000, while Nick Cave, better known for his gloomy ballads, performed Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" with a winning bidder, who paid almost $150,000 for the privilege. And while Doherty wasn't on hand to perform at the event, which was organized by Bella Freud and raised almost $800,000 for the charity, Shane McGowan's performance of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" gave a jolt of rock 'n' roll excess.
