Memo Pad: Donatella Versace's Feedback... Fashion TV...

Donatella Versace will begin taking questions today from fans of her Facebook page.

Need a haircut? A pair of shoes? A fine Bordeaux? Just ask Ines de la Fressange. The Roger Vivier brand ambassador, recently voted the quintessential Parisienne by readers of Le Figaro, is so used to doling out tips she has decided to gather them in a book. “I spend my life handing out addresses to friends and journalists,” she said. Though the guide is not yet written, French publisher Flammarion is already fielding enquiries from Japan, China and South America for the foreign rights, she noted. The multitasking former Chanel muse is also working on the interior design of an as-yet-unnamed 50-room hotel located not far from the Vivier flagship on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Due to open in roughly a year, the hotel will house a restaurant and spa. And de la Fressange has designed a carpet for French furniture company Artelano. With all that, she will barely have time to catch her breath before dashing off to Hong Kong for the opening of a Vivier store in the spring. — Miles Socha
