Phillip Lim in the Far East... Gucci Gucci Goo... Nicole Miller's Dark View...

On Saturday, Phillip Lim held his first fashion show in Asia.

BACK IN BLACK: Designer Nicole Miller, flying into Chicago one week after presenting her collection at New Zealand Fashion Week, knows one thing about her Windy City clientele. “They like a lot of black,” said Miller, who hosted cocktails for customers at her North Wells Street store last Wednesday, donating a portion of sales to the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. When it comes to gala dressing, Chicagoans “wear a lot less color than in New York, but it’s more avant-garde,” she said, noting that Comme des Garcons sells well in the city. “They’re not wearing a little black dress. They’re wearing something black and cool.”

Miller should know. In a tally of popular partygoers, New York magazine recently named her one of the most photographed faces of 2010. Miller, who was listed at number 13, was amused that Fern Mallis edged out Anna Wintour for the number-one slot. Still, Miller admits there may be parties she has yet to attend. “There were some people [on the list] I didn’t know.”
