MINKOFF’S NEW ROLE: Rebecca Minkoff celebrated the opening of her first shop-in-shop at Los Feliz boutique Confederacy on Tuesday night with help from good friend and model Agyness Deyn. Minkoff, a friend of the owner of Confederacy, said the venture was a good way for her to “get my toes into retail without the huge risk that some people take.” Next up is finding a location for a New York flagship and the arrival of her son in the next two months.

Deyn said designing is “not something that I’m getting into immediately,” although she admitted that “it depends on the phase of life I’m in and what I’m into.” The model, who just finished shooting a movie in London called “Pusher,” said she plans to pursue more acting. Minkoff, who is adding a fragrance to her three-year plan, also said some other brand extensions are ahead. Celebrity friends Danny Masterson, Lauren Conrad, Ashton Kutcher and Busy Phillips also came out to support Minkoff on her big night.
