FIESTA FENDI: Hitting Milan for the first time, the Fendi O’ club night got the men’s fashion week crowd on their feet Tuesday night. Canadian electro-pop group Dragonette hit the stage together with Parisian DJ Martin Solveig at the brand’s industrial showroom space to celebrate the release of the debut Fendi O’ compilation CD and its spring advertising campaign. “I’m off to start fittings for couture week in a few days,” said the bubbly Italian model Bianca Balti, who revealed she’s set to walk the forthcoming Chanel and Dior shows in Paris. Also in work mode was Francesca Versace, who let slip she’s planning to launch her own accessories line this spring. Bianca Brandolini d’Adda also has a new project up her sleeve, revealing she’s set to star in a film by French-Algerian director Yamina Benguigui. D’Adda said she’ll play the role of a Catholic girl who converts to Islam. “I love fashion but acting is where my heart is,” she said. Other partygoers included Canadian singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara, model Noémie Lenoir, and stylist Giovanna Battalion.
