We love how all the editors inevitably attach themselves to a reality vehicle at some point. Joanna Coles, Nina Garcia, and Ariel Foxman are obviously part of the Project Runway fam, André Leon Talley dipped his toes into Tyra territory, the Bazaar gang appeared on Bravo's The Fashion Show, and now Cindi Leive seems to be snuggling up to NBC's new show Fashion Star, which begins airing tonight. (The NY Post gave it a surprisingly good review yesterday! Who knew?) Last night Cindi and Ben Silverman hosted a party for the show at Miss Lily's that brought out Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, Anne Christensen, Carly Cushnie, Michelle Ochs, and for pure randomness...Hoda Kotb. Will you be watching, dear reader?

The Truth Hurts

Say it ain't so! Squash those Sun rumors about the hilarious idea of Kate Moss and Kristen Stewart working together. The trusty British tab reports that Kate "wants to collaborate on a track with Kristen that was written by her husband Jamie Hince." Alas...it's all too good to be true! A source close to Stewart told Gossip Cop (the site that busts up internet rumors—the internet's Debbie Downer!) that the story sounds "untrue" and "off." Whomp, whomp!

The Coveteur goes into the home of this classic American designer who tells them that "disorganization is not an option" for him. Who could it be? Hint: He'll make an appearance on American Idol this week shelling out (much needed!) fashion advice to contestants. OK, OK...We'll just give you this one. It's Tommy Hilfiger's closet, featuring a collection of (mostly) brown shoes. #jealous

As the crowd at the DvF Awards hit the buffet and picked up a flute or two of bubbly before the bevy of gamechanging women took the stage on Friday night, Chic chatted up Fran Leibowitz about knowing Diane (four decades and counting!), without ever wearing Diane...

What brings you to the UN this evening, Fran?

Diane.

How long have you known Diane?

Ha! Well, I’ve known her since she was married to [Prince] Egon, so since the early seventies.

Do you have any vintage memories of Diane?
All memories are vintage. But there are none that I’m going to be sharing with you.

What is Diane’s biggest contribution for womankind?
She pays attention to them! Diane has done a lot for girls in general.

And for their closets. Is there any DvF in your wardrobe?
I don’t wear her clothes. No, no, no! Never have.

Has she ever tried to get you in her designs?
Nope.

What would it take for Diane to get you walking her runway?
That is not going to come up.

How would you describe your personal style?

Excellent!

Over the weekend, we received the final short film from Diet Coke's new creative director Jean Paul Gaultier co-starring Eleanor, the puppet. JPG's bottle designs and an ad campaign shot by Stéphane Sednaoui (Madonna, Garbage, Red Hot Chili Peppers) will be released next month. In the meantime, you have some time to try to figure out what these wacky little movies have to do with Diet Coke.

Step Into Madonna's Shoes

Shoe me? Shoe me?

Chic knows a few drag queens who are going to be doing backflips at Barracuda when they hear the news that Madonna and Guy Oseary have entered a license agreement with Aldo to create a footwear collection. Madonna shoes, people! The second venture for MG Icon (the joint venture with Iconix Brand), her Madgesty's footwear collection will be called "Truth or Dare by Madonna" ranges from flats, heels and boots, and styles that Madge is known for such as the over-the-knee boot. Other ways to play truth or dare with the icon: handbags, a scent, and skivvies! The collection will be available in August at the likes of Macy's and Nordstrom, and will range from a very reasonable $89 to $349. Arianne Phillips (recently Oscar-nominated for her W.E. costumes) serves as creative consultant for the line. It's like a prayer.
