SPACE RACE: Zoe Saldana, who along with Mary-Kate Olsen slipped into the Giambattista Valli show Monday as the lights went down, finally is coming down to earth. The “Star Trek” beauty, who next appears in the James Cameron outer-space Imax epic “Avatar,” said she just wrapped “Death at a Funeral,” a remake of the British comedy. “I play a crazy girl who brings her crazy boyfriend to a funeral,” she said.
Margherita Missoni, who caught up with her buddies Tatiana Santo Domingo and Eugenie Niarchos, said she's has started working on a pre-collection at Missoni. Elettra Wiedemann said she just wrapped an advertising campaign for Lancome and would soon be returning to her student life at the London School of Economics. "I like going back to it after events like these,” she said.
Lapo Elkann, who had parked his matte black Maserati just outside the backstage area, has teamed up with Valli for a limited-edition collection of sunglasses that were previewed on the runway. Valli has added his own personal twist to Elkann’s Italia Independent sunglasses, revisiting a women’s style with ebony arms, hand-painted ends and mirror lenses.
