She’s due back in court February 23. Meanwhile savvy designers should reach out to the star”the Ovitz dress is sold out everywhere.
The patented Clinton spin cycle is out in full force this week, with newlyweds Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky stepping out for a ritzy New York gala after speculation their marriage was on the rocks.

Some juicy gossip for the front-row set at New York Fashion Week. Former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld and her successor Emmanuelle Alt are no longer speaking, according to both editors. Carine offered her resignation and some say she was surprised it was accepted, perhaps leading to the bad blood between her and her longtime colleague. Emmanuelle said: “I don’t look back and see clouds anywhere. Carine is someone who needs to be free.” Hmm, “free”? What a kind word for “unemployed.”
