TOGETHER AGAIN: For the past few weeks, designers had been in hiding to finish their spring collections. Now that fashion week is over, though, quite a few seemed more than happy to break out of their shells. On Thursday, Chris Benz, Doo-Ri Chung, Phillip Lim, Jessie Randall and Justin Giunta came to Il Cantinori, where Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive and executive fashion director Xanthipi Joannides hosted a dinner. “Now it’s off to Paris,” said Benz, who brought along budding actress (and Sting’s daughter) Mickey Sumner.
Lindsay Price of “Lipstick Jungle,” meanwhile, was encouraging Chung to run a marathon. “I will only do a half marathon, though,” Chung said.
