Sitting pretty in a black Michael Kors shift dress, Maria Sharapova graced the designer's front row on Sunday afternoon. "I wanted to support him because he has always supported me in tennis," she said after setting off a blast of flashbulbs, as did...

AN ANGELIC MUSE: Angel Sanchez's client of 15 years and fellow Venezuelan, Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, provided the inspiration for the designer's first show since 2001. She gave him a book of her private art collection, "The Geometry of Hope: Latin American Abstract Art from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection," and the works from artists like Gego, Alejandro Otero, and Jesus Rafael Soto reminded Sanchez of his favorite art from his youth. He incorporated the geometrical looks and rich textures with bits of primary color into his collection, which shows Monday. Phelp de Cisneros' art will be on exhibit as "The Geometry of Hope" from Wednesday to Dec. 8 at the New York University Grey Art Gallery.

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS: They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and at the Ferragamo store Friday morning it was at least the most fun. To celebrate the new children's book, "Fiera," the Italian brand threw a party for yummy mummies and their kids, chockablock with balloons, face painting, coloring and bite-size goodies. Of course, most of the tykes who could take the morning off were still crawling, as the older ones were all in school. Which is too bad, because who wants to miss out on french fries and grilled cheese for breakfast?

MENA AND MOTLEY: Mena Suvari was front row at the Rosa Cha show Saturday afternoon, having recently returned from a film shoot in Spain. "I Ioved everything about the country," she said. "The people, the weather, the food — everyone is so passionate." Suvari sported a spiky new hairdo that she cut specifically for her role. "It's very easy now but I am trying to let it grow," she said of her short, flaxen tresses. "Or else I'm kind of limited in my roles."

Not too far away sat Nikki Sixx, best known as the bassist of glam rock band Mötley Crüe. The rocker was looking forward to checking out Amir Slama's glamorous selection of swimwear. "I like both one and two pieces," said Sixx. "Whatever you're comfortable in." Sixx is soon launching his own fashion company called Royal Underground. "It's clothing and jewelry," he said. "It's mixing the cheap with the high-end — like cut-off shorts with a beautiful leather jacket. That's how I dress."
