OUT AND ABOUT, FOR NOW: As might befit a mother-to-be of twins, Lulu de Kwiatkowski and her first book, "Lulu," were feted with two parties last Tuesday and Wednesday in her new hometown of Los Angeles. On Tuesday, interior designer Miles Redd and Lisa Love hosted a dinner in Oscar de la Renta's Melrose Place boutique, which had been transformed by candlelight from retail to romantic. "It actually feels like a wedding," said de Kwiatkowski. "In fact, there were more speeches tonight than at my wedding." It's true that the group, including Bridget and Mark Romanek, Emily Deschanel, Jamie Tisch, Gwen McCaw (who is leaving Los Angeles for Seattle), Jacqui Getty and Crystal Lourd, raised many a glass to the artist-slash-author, who spent three years creating the collages for her tome.

The next night, it was cocktails in the parlor of Chateau Marmont, where multisyllabic guests like Countess Franziska Fugger von Babenhausen and Mandolyna Theodoracopulos made it feel like a Euro-social reunion, alongside a more Hollywood crowd of actors such as Mariel Hemingway, Jordanna Brewster and Terrence Stamp. The guest of honor, meanwhile, was making the most of it. "Thankfully I've had my fill of parties, as I won't be going out again for some time," said de Kwiatkowski, who is due next month.

MODEL ACT: Advertisingwise, Victoria Beckham plopped in a giant shopping bag, legs akimbo, is a tough act to follow. To wit: Marc Jacobs has opted to take the model route for his forthcoming fall-winter campaign, casting two house favorites: Kirsten Owen and Stella Tennant.

LINDSAY'S GOT LEGS: If Lindsay Lohan's efforts to resuscitate her once-hot movie career don't pan out, she always has fashion. The rehabilitated wild child has teamed up with fashion and beauty pros Kristi Kaylor and Sarah Haynes Heath to start a Beverly Hills brand development company called Stay Gold LLC. The third partner in the four-femme company is Lohan's friend Jenni Muro. Kaylor, a principal in singer Mandy Moore's clothing brand Mblem, and Heath, who was a founding member of Hard Candy and currently works with Smashbox Cosmetics, are putting their experience behind Lohan's new leggings line, 6126, which was unveiled to retailers on Thursday at Los Angeles' contemporary fashion market. Named after Marilyn Monroe's birth date, 6126 includes footless tights cut out of Supima cotton and Modal ribbed knits and other fabrics spruced up with foil prints, yarn dyes and screen prints. Also bound to appeal to Eighties-obsessed club kids are 6126's legwarmers and a foot accessory dubbed the ankle glove. (Michael Jackson, are you listening?) Wholesaling from $20 to $75, the line has already been picked up by retailers such as Hillary Rush, Fred Segal and revolveclothing.com.
