(Hey, Mara Hoffman's not the only one...)

"I've been traveling in my head, imagining all kinds of escapist fantasies. I have major trips and hope one will be a reality. I want to go to Kenya for Thanksgiving. Somewhere extreme and adventurous. All summer long I get away to Montauk; that's the best place in the world. We have a store and I sneak in and borrow stuff and bring it back the next day!" ---Cynthia Rowley, backstage at her Spring 2011 show.

Chic caught up with Carmen Electra in the front row of Zac Posen's Z Spoke show, and we had to know...

Do you remember the first word you ever spoke?
I wish I could phone a friend! I’d call my dad, because I know he knows!

Knowing yourself now, what do you think you would have said first?
Oh, I know this actually. I learned how to count to three in Japanese before I learned in English.

Do you speak Japanese now?
No! I know nothing. Sadly. My mom has a third degree in jujitsu, so that’s how I learned to count. From the time I was a little girl, she’d take me to the dojo and I’d just sit on the side and watch her. She’d break boards all over the place. She was a very strong and tough woman.

Do you have a belt in anything?
I don’t. I actually wanted to study so bad, but she didn’t want me to get hurt. She thought it was better, and safer, if I got into dancing, instead.

After an almost entirely black Fall 2010 showing, Alexander Wang eschewed the hue altogether for his Spring 2011 collection. What gives, Alex? "I guess it was a departure for me not using any black," Wang told Chic backstage at his show. "I was doing something very optimistic and pure, and in that sense, that was the starting point. It was a reaction to myself and everything I've encountered."

You've been bamboozled, darlings! Yesterday at the Spring showing of Prabal Gurung (quite a prolific tweeter himself), Delevigne divulged, "I do have a fake Poppy Delevigne who Twitters for me! All this person talks about is, 'what will I wear today, pants, a skirt, or a dress?' And I'm like, why would I ever write something as boring as that?!"

After mastering pole dancing with The Daily last season, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs have a new challenge in mind. "I'm trying to get Carly to do the High Heel-A-Thon," announced Michelle at the Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2011 show. "It's that crazy heel race in Central Park!" "Michelle is always amazed that I could furiously run after taxis in my heels," responded Carly. " Maybe I could take it one step further!"

One would-be guest was so unhappy with his futile attempts to get into Balenciaga's at-capacity event last night (which boasted Nicholas Ghesquiere himself as well as a performance by Karen Elson) that he caused quite a scene at the door—which ended with him in handcuffs. The man—who clearly had had a few cocktails—was standing right on the edge of the rope and yelling (er, slurring) obscenities at anyone that did get let in. When security tried to get him to move, he stood his ground and yelled at them, “Touch me. I dare you to touch me. You’re not f**king cops.” Finally, security did grab him and pull him away from the door, whereupon our dear sloshed crasher fought them, yelled, and screamed---and it wasn’t long before the sirens showed up on West 22nd Street. Maybe FNO should be a little less generous with the gratis drinks next year?
