GREEK TO ME: Amy Sacco, Andrew Saffir and New York Ranger-cum-Vogue intern Sean Avery trekked to the IAC Building on the West Side to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bulgari's Diagono watch collection. The company bowed new styles for the collection — which is based on the Greek word agon, which means competition — in Switzerland in April but the party was the first time the watches were shown to clients. "The watches were very well received at Basel," enthused François Kress, President of Bulgari USA.

A PERFECT TEN: Didier Grumbach had double reason to celebrate being reelected as president of the French Fashion Federation at its recent general assembly, marking a decade in the post. Also at the event, Grumbach was awarded the National Order of Merit by France's Minister of Economy, Christine Lagarde. The award was created in the Sixties by then President Charles de Gaulle to honor distinguished civil and military achievements.

CARTOON NETWORK: Sin City celebrated fashion, art and film on Monday night as Louis Vuitton hosted a champagne-fueled cocktail party at the Wynn Las Vegas in honor of Takashi Murakami's first film "Kaikai & Kiki, Episode I: Planting the Seeds." The animated short was premiering as part of the CineVegas film festival, and follows the outer space adventures of Kaikai and Kiki, two recurrent characters in Murakami's two-dimensional work. "Some people like baseball or football; I'm a big fan of animation," explained the pony-tailed artist, as he was greeted by well-wishers including mega-art collectors Elaine and Steve Wynn, Dennis Hopper and CineVegas president Robin Greenspun before the screening at the Wynn's Lake of Dreams, where the film was projected directly onto a waterfall. But there was another reason for Louis Vuitton to celebrate: the unveiling of the latest Murakami-created collection, Monogramouflage. Inspired by the artist's work, Magic Ball, as well as his own penchant for wearing camouflage-patterned clothing, the complete collection will be on sale to big winners at the Wynn starting July 1.
