Speedo Dives In... Simon Doonan Back for Night of the Stars...

Speedo is taking issue with FINA's decision to ban its LZR Racer suit.

THE OSCAR GOES TO…: In October, Oscar de la Renta can add another prize to his list of accomplishments — the Superstar Award at The Fashion Group International’s 26th annual Night of Stars. “Oscar personifies the word ‘superstar,’” Margaret Hayes, president of The Fashion Group International, said. This year’s gala, which will take place at Cipriani 55 Wall Street in New York on Oct. 22, will be themed “The Storytellers,” and de la Renta seemed to fit the bill. “While this award honors his lifetime achievements, it is also in recognition of the vitality and creativity clearly apparent in his current collections,” Hayes said. “Oscar is truly a most accomplished and inspirational figure in our industry.” Barneys New York creative director Simon Doonan will once again emcee the gala. Lord & Taylor will be the night’s lead sponsor, with participating sponsors including Bebe, Arcade Marketing, Cotton Inc., Givaudan, The Taubman Co. and InStyle.
