Memo Pad: Paris Sans Wintour... Print to Web... Martha Space...

There will be an extra front-row seat at the Paris collections in October: Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour plans to skip the City of Light.

Stewart also finds time to post regular entries to her MySpace blog, which she has updated from her vacation in France with Kevin Sharkey, decorating editorial director of Martha Stewart Living. According to the posts, she still finds time for offline reading in between online networking. "Kevin and I left NYC via Kennedy for Nice," Stewart wrote in a blog post from Aug. 15. "Between us, Kevin and I had about 15 different magazines and several newspapers, and I vowed I would get through all of them before lapsing off into a fitful three-hour nap before reaching our destination." Her stack included House & Garden, Vanity Fair — for its "profile of Ralph Lauren and a great story about the Hermès family," Elle Decor — "delicious pâte recipe by Daniel Boulud," and W — "some fall clothing and accessory inspiration from Michael Kors and Calvin Klein." — S.D.S.

WHAT A GEM: Interview magazine sure is a big supporter of Van Cleef & Arpels these days. Not only are editor in chief Ingrid Sischy, publisher Sandra Brant and fashion director Annabel Tollman on the host committee for the Parisian jeweler's upcoming "Une journée à Paris" party at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York Sept. 4, but Tollman will style a runway show during the event. Tollman stresses it is strictly a freelance gig, but added helpfully that she often uses pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels for editorial in the magazine. It is expected to be the jeweler's largest event ever in the U.S. Prosper Assouline, Alber Elbaz, Lee Radziwill, Anne McNally, Irina Lazareanu, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Muffie Potter Aston, who formerly served as head of p.r. for the jewelry company, are also on the party's host committee. — Amy Wicks
