Milan doesn't always bring out the big names to the front row the way Paris does, but Hilary Swank found her way to the Ferragamo show at Palazzo Mezzanotte over the weekend to add a dose of movie star magic. Besides being perched front row, Swank also visited the handsome Massimiliano Giornetti backstage. The duo was spotted later at the special view of Salvatore Ferragamo's atelier hosted by Vogue Italia at Accademia Di Brera.

Tonight, Seth Meyers will make his big debut taking over the Late Night slot from Jimmy Fallon. The current issue of Vogue has a profile of Meyer, where his friend and former SNL cast member Amy Poehler tells the glossy that Meyer will probably be sticking with that 12:30 a.m. timeslot for some time. "The man has had the same phone number for, like, thirteen years," Poehler said. "He's been at SNL for how long? He is not afraid to settle in." Sounds good to us. Now, let's get Anna and Marc on that couch...

She's baaaaack! America's sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence, returns for her third Dior campaign in this just-released image. Patrick Demarchelier shot the American Hustle star holding a Miss Dior bag in the shot. Not so sure how we feel about the hair here, but we still love that JLaw. It doesn't take a psychic to tell us that it's 99.9 percent guaranteed that she'll be wearing Dior on the red carpet this Sunday at the Oscars, where she's up for best supporting actress.

A chic crowd gathered last eve at Prada's Milan store for the brand's latest installment of The Iconoclasts project. The project allows top stylists to merchandise and present the collection in store according to each stylist's unique vision. This season, W's Edward Enninful jazzed up the store by bringing a distinctly American sensibility to Milan. Enninful's vision included black and white mannequins dressed in Prada's Spring 2014 collection, plus archival looks in a space that felt like a '20s club in Harlem, complete with an Art Deco bar and jazz band as well as a pool table and cards table. More than 200 guests like Stefano Tonchi, Mariacarla Boscono, Linda Fargo, Joan Smalls, Natasha Poly, Carla Sozzani, Italo Zucchelli, Eva Chen, Giovanna Battaglia, and Anna Dello Russo showed up to see what Enninful's eye would bring to the party. Prior to Enninful, stylists like Alex White, Katie Grand, Olivier Rizzo, and Carine Roitfeld have contributed to The Iconoclasts project. Nothing but the best for Prada, darlings!

Stephen Budd, president of leather jacket and outerwear purveyor Andrew Marc, has enlisted designer Richard Chai for an ongoing collaboration. Last night at Scoop in Soho, the store played host to the collection launch with industry insiders like Nicola Formichetti of Diesel and Eugene Tong of Details showing up to support Chai. We caught up with Chai to get the scoop on the collab and to find out how he shops when he's not designing his own duds.
How did this collab come about?
I knew Stephen Budd when he was at BCBG. There was a time when Max [Azria] was speaking to me about launching a Men’s BCBG. That’s how Stephen and I met, so we just stayed in touch over the years. He came to Andrew Marc and said, “Look, I have this interesting project.” We started initially with a capsule for Spring, which is what we’re selling now, and then it just became an ongoing thing. I’ve known Stephen for about three years now. He’s always been really honest and fun, and he has incredible energy. As a creative person you always want to find that person who gets the business side of you, but equally as crazy and energetic. He’s literally that, so it’s quite nice.
Do you pop by Scoop often?
Of course, I’ve been to this shop a million times! It’s nice to see this [Richard Chai x Andrew Marc] product in here; it’s the first time this product’s been at the store.
What do you buy when you’re not wearing your own label?
Gosh that’s really hard. I do have a bit of a shopping problem and the sad part is I don’t wear a lot of it. I’m a bit of a collector. It’s really weird. People go through my closet and say, "Why do you have Comme de Garçons still in the plastic you bought it in?" I’ll go through my closet and be like, "I remember that coat! I bought it like four years ago." Then I’ll start wearing it and everyone will be like, "What a fantastic new coat!" And actually, it’s like four years old.

What's new for Sergio Kletnoy, assistant to Cosmo's EIC, Joanna Coles and the coolest homme at Hearst? Tons! As if his two-part Boy George sit-down wasn't enough, his last two weeks have been filled with so many starry encounters and glorious moments. You might wanna down a doppio before reading...
The past two weeks have been completely bonkers in Kletnoy land. As soon as I landed back on U.S. soil from Iceland, I had to organize THE BOSS’s fashion week schedule, consisting of 1,000,021 fashion shows. In the middle of that, there was one major appearance at the White House State dinner for François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande aka the current President of France and Co-Prince of Andorra. Fancy! In-between the fashion week hoopla and my usual workload I had plenty of fun. First up, Fern Mallis’ fascinating talk with Isaac Mizrahi at 92Y, where The Miz dished about his childhood, fashion career, acting, QVC and Marc Jacobs. Next up an office visit from supermodel Karlie Kloss for an impromptu appearance on CosmoLive for our website. I then spotted Jennifer Beals eating lunch at the Hearst cafeteria, and it took everything in me not to pull down my T and expose my shoulder to her a-la Flashdance. There was also a glorious evening of drinking tea at the Soho Grand hotel with one of the biggest icons and one of my fave musicians, Boy George, where we talked about his new album and all things pop culture.
A few days later, I bumped into the 12-time Olympic medalist and world record holder for swimming, Dara Torres, at the Cosmo office and made her pose for “Air Swimming” photos with me. Although Dara holds the record for number of medals she won, I totally beat her at smizing. On the weekend I saw Latino heartthrob Enrique Iglesias at his sold-out concert at MSG, where I danced and sang along to all of his English and Spanish songs, which I know by heart. Don’t judge! I also caught the newest U.K. boy-band sensation, The Vamps, at their first sold out U.S. concert at the Gramercy Theatre. The screaming from the teenage girls was so loud that I could barely hear myself think, and all of this without even a single in America. One Direction better watch their back, because these guys are super talented, write their own songs, and play instruments. I haven’t been able to get their U.K. single “Can We Dance” out of my head. Yes, it’s that good! Oh, and after their show I went out for drinks at the Gramercy Hotel and spotted Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Régine Chassagne at the table behind me. Well, I didn’t really spot them, my friend Julie did…but this is my story and I’m sticking to it.
Finally, I was reunited with Mariah Carey at MTV, where MC premiered her newest music video for the super sexy “You’re Mine (Eternal)”. Of course, in my head, the song is totally about moi. A boy can dream, right? All in all, I had about 20 hours of sleep in the last two weeks, but I’m not complaining. Next week, I’ll do it all over again and live to write about it. Have an excellent weekend and be sure to check out my fave new tunes…
