The September issue of Teen Vogue, featuring teeny-bopper star Victoria Justice (qui?), includes an article about the oh-so-scandalous teens who have been "crossing the line of good taste" to gain access to fashion week tickets and clothes. Prep-school duo Remy Renzullo and Becca Shumlin are glamorized as being blacklisted from fashion week after they snuck their way into hot shows, sometimes getting chummy with front-row eds. The juiciest dish? A certain publicist quotes: "...when you total up the cost of the show, each seat can be worth more than $500. So stealing someone's seat is like taking $500 of a company's money." $500, vraiment? Now we know why these flacks are so touchy about crashers...

Happy Birthday, Michael Kors! The eternally bronzed designer turns 51 today, and in the latest issue of Vanity Fair he happily discusses his fantasies…which involve plenty of Leos. “My dream dinner party is a fabulous birthday party for my fellow Leos,” he says. “Guests would include Andy Warhol, Jackie Onnasis, Alfred Hitchcock, Lucille Ball, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Madonna, President Obama, Bill Clinton, Julia Child, Mick Jagger, and Whitney Houston.” Also celebrating her brithday today? Linda Wells---who Kors somehow left off his list.

You want your little bundle of joy to grow up properly educated, don't you? While Hop On Pop is perfectly acceptable reading for les petits, allow Chic to suggest something a bit more appropriate for the crayon-wielding set: an Hermès coloring book. Whether they stay inside the lines or not, these are drawings that you won't mind sticking on the fridge. (Childless? Torn out and framed, these pictures might be a witty---and cheaper!---reprisal of framed Hermès scarves, non?) THE DETAILS: Hermès coloring book, $130, www.usa.hermes.com

Maybe it's the fact that we finally saw Inception this weekend, but Chic has been having some seriously strange dreams lately. The most recent? We were backstage at Marc's Spring 2011 show, which was themed (wait for it) John Cougar Mellencamp and "blacklights." We can't explain why---can someone call DiCaprio?---but we can tell you that it was lovely, with full skirts in bright prints topped with fitted little jackets. The makeup (attention, Francois Nars!) was equally impressive: a brick red lip and bright orange blush, which was sheer enough to be absolutely wearable. Are we losing it? Are we psychic? Watch this space, darlings...

If your mind is still reeling over that $1,600 shredded olive Balmain tee from the brand's Spring collection---which sold out, by the way---we're happy to present you with something much more reasonable: this tee's only $533! Christophe Decarnin's 100% cotton flower-print tee shirt (and look: no holes!) is a veritable steal compared with the former, so we suggest snapping yours up pronto. THE DETAILS: Balmain floral tee, $533, www.colette.com

And you thought everyone was in the Hamptons! Sure enough, the crowd did indeed show for Intermix's TURN IT UP! event at Skylight West. Haro and Khajak Keledjian welcomed everyone from Hilary Rhoda to Yigal Azrouel and Adam Lippes to the affair, which featured a live performance by Locksley (and scores of Crumbs cupcakes, which, for once, did not remain completely untouched by the calorie-conscious crowd).
