RITES OF PASSAGE: “Hello, Karl!” Fendi’s new chief executive officer Pietro Beccari said backstage as he embraced Karl Lagerfeld at the Roman house’s fall show. Michael Burke, Fendi’s ceo for the past eight years, was there, too, for a final passing of the baton, as he takes up the management helm of Roman jeweler Bulgari. “This is it,” declared Burke, who will make his first big outing for Bulgari at the Baselworld watch fair in March. The two LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton executives headed out into the runway theater to greet editors and retailers together.

Elsewhere at the show, the talk was all about marriage and babies. In between DJ-ing and interning with swimwear designer Deborah Fleming of Pistol Panties, Mary Charteris is gearing up for her September wedding to rocker Robbie Furze at Stanway House, the family pile in Gloucestershire. She’s already picked the designer of her dress. “I’m getting Pam Hogg to do it. It’s going to be crazy. We’ll see — fingers crossed,” said Charteris, who modeled in Hogg’s show at London Fashion Week. But don’t expect her to follow the designer’s penchant for eccentric hair color. “I’m keeping my natural hair color, definitely, but I haven’t thought about hair and makeup yet,” she mused. “Cornrows?” offered her front-row neighbor, Portia Freeman. “Cornrows, yes, exactly,” Charteris giggled.

Freeman, fresh from swapping baby stories backstage with stylist Charlotte Stockdale, admitted she missed her son, Dylan, who turns two next month. “I can’t wait to get home to him tonight now,” said the model, who is to appear in the next Charlotte Olympia shoe campaign. “I’m kind of living the dream. I get to work and come into this very glamorous lifestyle and then also be a mother.”
