CHANGE OF PACE: Maybe it was the unbearable heat or perhaps the hustle and bustle of fashion week wore them down — whatever the reason, guests at Saturday afternoon's Rodarte show let their guards down. A notoriously tight-lipped Vincent Gallo sang the praises of the sibling design duo, "I definitely think these girls are the most talented in the business," the indie actor gushed. On the opposite side of the runway, Vogue creative director Grace Coddington ditched her signature basic black for a diaphanous peach frock. "I tried it out in my house this summer in East Hampton," the editrix revealed. "It takes a lot of courage to wear color when you've been wearing black for 20 years!"

SALE OF THE CENTURY: Those who admire the style of the late Nan Kempner can get their hands on some of her clothes next month — when Christie's is offering pieces from her wardrobe at its October House Sale. Christie's, of which Kempner was once a representative, will feature 60 lots assembled in a complete look mixing designers, ready-to-wear with couture and a variety of accessories. Among the design houses represented in the sale are Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Fendi, and the looks range from the Sixties to the time of her death in 2005. Highlights include a black chiffon and velvet gown by Saint Laurent, from about 2000, and a Christian Dior apricot gazar dress from 1968. Proceeds from the Oct. 2 will benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. There is just one caveat: Those who plan to wear the pieces should come with a whippet-thin frame comparable to Kempner's, or, at least, start dieting straight away.

SHOCK WATCH: If you're in the East Village over fashion week, staying at the Bowery Hotel perhaps, check out an exhibit at Dave's Quality Meat, the funky sneaker retailer, for the new Casio G-Shock Concre, an exclusive watch line designed in collaboration with artists and brands from the world of street culture.

The first G-Shock Concre series, featuring models created in partnership with New York artists Eric Elms, Madsaki and Rostarr, and Dave's Quality Meat, will be viewable to the public at an exclusive model launch exhibition during New York Fashion Week until Sept. 12.
