Fashion Scoops: Wedding Bells At Lauder... Blonde Ambition... Baby Talk...

John Demsey, a group president at the Estee Lauder Cos. Inc., has decided to take a break from plotting brand strategy and pursue some development of his own by tying the knot.

TV TIME: The finale of "America's Next Top Model" airs Wednesday on the CW Network, but one winner is already clear: Sass & Bide will be worn by models and hosts alike, as the final competitors walk in a staged fashion show featuring all Sass & Bide, with the Sydney harbor as the backdrop. Sass & Bide designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton are guest judges, and both Tyra Banks and guest judge CariDee English, who won last season, also sport the contemporary brand on the show.

TRIPLE PLAY: Subversive Jewelry designer Justin Giunta has lots going on. Not only is he within the three-week mark of finding out whether he won the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Accessory Design, but he'll be feted tonight at House & Garden's party for its "Tastemakers" issue, in which he was declared one. "It's a really great honor," said Giunta. "We're also on the cover of this week's New York magazine, so it's been a good week….As far as being a tastemaker, it shows that my aesthetic transcends across many media. I feel very validated as a tastemaker." The fun doesn't end there. On Wednesday night, Guinta will be showcasing his new couture collection at Phillips de Pury & Company in honor of his nomination. There, the clusters of chains and charms that make up some of Subversive's most spectacular pieces will shine against the most famous modern art masterpieces. "It's going to be a poignant retrospective of contemporary art as it exists today — big names, big pieces, big price tags," joked Giunta. "But visually it will be really stunning. Accessories designers don't get much of an opportunity to show everything at one time — you never see an accessories designer walking down the runway, so this is a nice compromise to that."
