Memo Pad: Paris Review Hosts Party... Madonna Up Again for Vuitton...

Whether a good toast is anything like a good poem is something that could possibly be decided in the pages of the Paris Review.

ONE OF HER OWN: Kelly Cutrone has become a household name, thanks to numerous appearances on MTV shows such as “The Hills,” and now she’s scored a reality show of her own. Bravo will begin shooting “Kell on Earth” in August; the show will follow Cutrone and her colleagues at People’s Revolution. “This will be about our lives and our clients,” said Cutrone, who said shooting should wrap up around the end of November. “It’s a way to bypass editors and buyers and go directly to the viewers at home.” The show could air as early as January 2010, although a Bravo spokeswoman said a premiere date has not been decided.

The Wednesday edition of “The Martha Stewart Show” was taken over by brides-to-be from all over the country, with all 160 audience members donning bridal veils. Vera Wang stopped by to show her new collection, inspired by ball gowns, while Frédéric Fekkai talked trends in hair styling and David Monn provided ideas for decorating on a budget. Wang advised brides-to-be to select a gown a mere two to three months before the big day — a short time frame that surprised Darcy Miller, editorial director of weddings at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, whom Stewart then jokingly referred to as “Bridezilla.”

And Stewart and Miller didn’t miss any opportunity during the show to flex their muscles in cross-promotion, repeatedly telling viewers to visit the company’s Web site and also pick up a copy of the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.
