A glowing Julia Restoin-Roitfeld showed off her baby bump (fully clothed!) last night at The Cinema Society screening of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen at the Crosby Street Hotel. Lovely! You'll recall that Julia's mom Carine Roitfeld revealed last year that her future grandkids would be calling her "madame" and not Granny.

Who wore it better? Pete and Penny Penguin hit the premiere of Discovery's Frozen Planet last night at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, and stole the show on the lavender carpet in their penguin suits. (We're assuming it's Armani, but the penguins declined comment.) Such individuality with these two. Well done, guys!

Party at Bloomies! Last night, the retailer debuted its new "Loyallist" reward card program with spinning deejays, feather boa photo opps, and most importantly, sale racks. Meanwhile, Derek Lam and a chic coterie of mods descended on the second floor for the in-store launch of 10 Crosby. Before indulging in lavender-colored cupcakes and matching manis, Chic chatted with the street-wise designer.

What's the story behind 10 Crosby?
It's the street address for our office!

What's your favorite haute spot on Crosby Street?
There's an amazing tea shop a block from me called In Pursuit of Tea, or Cha. I try everything there.

Speaking of streets, let's free associate!

Wall Street: [laughs] One percent.

Sunset Boulevard: Old movies.

Hollywood Boulevard: I don't know that street.

Bleecker Street: What a great street!

Castro Street in San Francisco: There's an amazing old-time theater there called The Castro Theatre.

Pacific Coast Highway: A perfect afternoon.

Broadway: The heartbeat of America.

Do you have a favorite Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young song?
I'm more into The Mamas and the Papas. It's all about "California Dreaming." 

What are you up to next?
I'm going on vacation next week to Burma, Phuket, and Seoul!

At last night's Mackage show in Toronto, Chic chatted up Kreesha Turner, a Canuck singer perched front and center, about her NYFW seating assignment and performing for a Spice Girl's foray into fashion (nope, it's not the Posh one...). 

Do you usually sit front row?
I've been blessed! I went to one of their shows a couple years ago, and I've been lucky to sit in the front every single time. I'm a big lover of fashion, especially when it's Canadian designers. There's no better place to take it in than front and center, obviously. 

Where do they seat you at NYFW?
Definitely not in the front row; it wasn't that far back, though. Probably the third or fourth row. 

What lured you to the Mackage show? 
I've had a relationship with the brand for a few years now; I was sent a gorgeous leather coat for an event in 2008 and I've been a supporter ever since. I recently wore a bunch of their stuff in a music video I shot two weeks ago in Montreal.

When does the video drop?
The beginning of April. The song is called "Love Again," and it's filled with a bunch of Mackage. 

Where do you hail from the in the fair country of Canada?
I'm living in Montreal but am in the process of relocating back to Toronto right now. I'm originally from a place called Edminton. 

Have you ever been on the runway? 
My most memorable moment was when I opened for a DSquared show. Dean and Dan are amazing; when I had a fitting with them, I tried on a good 10 dresses and they said, "oh my God, that looks amazing!" For every dress. They're some of the biggest Canadian designers out there. Also, I walked in Toronto's version of the Red Dress Heart Truth show in 2009.

Any other Fashion Week highlights? 
I once performed at New York Fashion Week, at the opening of the Kardashian's DASH store. I also performed at a show for Mel B, aka Scary Spice, when she launched her lingerie line.

Tommy to the rescue! The Hollywood Reporter reports that starting next week Tommy Hilfiger will be giving style tips to contestants on American Idol. "My own experiences at the beginning of my career inspired my commitment to mentor young people who are dedicated to pursuing their dreams," Hilfiger said in a statement. "Musicians can bring such a unique vision and personality to the stage. I admire risk takers who share my belief in the power of fashion to transform and influence, and I look forward to working with the artists to guide them in defining their performance style and identity.” Chic watched Idol last night and can attest that most of the contestants on the show this season are in desperate need of a little style advice from Tommy. Now who can do something about the voices?
