Who doesn’t love Clemence Poesy? The chicette graces Gotham’s Fashion Week issue, which hits the Tents demain. With turns in 127 Hours and this summer’s Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows 2, the Chloe queen has been busy, but she looks fresher than ever, don't you think?

Robbie Myers: My Uncle Robert. My parents desperately wanted a boy. 
Thakoon Panichgul: Nobody. Thakoon is a very rare name in Thai, actually.
Rose McGowan: An Italian duchess whose property I was born on. She hated my parents, so to return the favor, they named me after her.
Lubov Azria: My Aunt Lubov.
Marisa Berenson: Quite a few people come up to me and say, “I named my daughter after you.” 
Graydon Carter: It sounds like a street name, but a relative.
Eric West, musician: I named myself! I changed my last name. It’s originally Rosa. My dad’s Spanish.
Custo Barcelona: I don’t understand the question. 
Italo Zucchelli: My grandfather.
Simon Doonan: Simone de Beauvoir, and when I came out, my mother had to drop the E because I wasn’t a girl. But I am a deeply philosophical thinker myself.
Petra Nemcova: My mom was working in a store while she was pregnant with me, and a little seven-year-old girl named Petra would come shop alone, and my mom thought she was independent and strong.
Nary Manivong, NAHM: My family’s minister named my twin brother and me. My name means “the only one,” and my brother’s name, Pila, means “battery.” I definitely lucked out.
Ally Hilfiger: I don’t think I’m named after anyone, but my mom probably thought I was going to be a ballerina and thought Alexandria would be a good stage name.
Rosario Dawson: My great aunt from Puerto Rico.
Rose Byrne: It’s really boring; I think my parents had a neighbor named Rose.
Tommy Hilfiger: My grandfather, Thomas Garrety.
Zang Toi: There is only one Zang Toi in the world!

How’s your week?
Fluey. It’s really boring. And I was going to try to go out and whip my hair this season!
How did you get sick?
I think it’s just consumption. I was really smug that I wasn’t sick all winter, but it’s my karma.
What do you take to get better?
Theraflu. Whatever can be dissolved in water, I’m taking it. 
What would never come between you and your Calvin?
The flu! Malcolm Carfrae is like my brother, and Joe Jonas....
Ahhh!
I’m sure he wants somebody that resembles his mother, so, I’m here for him.
Will the Fashion Show on Bravo be coming back?
We don’t know yet! They decide things late. We did well against the State of the Union address. Who knew?

A Moment with...Fran Lebowitz

We loved your documentary! Do people recognize you now?
Certainly more! I’m not surprised that more people watch movies than read books. I always knew this. It’s incredibly hard for me to watch it. As a movie, I think Marty did a great job, and I’m glad I could help him out in his career, but to watch yourself on a movie screen… It’s disconcerting.
What else is new?
Compared to?
What are you doing these days to keep yourself busy?
I’m trying to write. This is a lifetime effort!
How’s that going?
Not that well. For instance, I’m here. I’m not home writing.

The Daily just heard that two major designers have recently fallen in love. Guess who!

Agyness Deyn: Henry Holland and Alexander Wang would be lovely. 
Lorenzo Martone: Maybe Jason and Prabal?
J. Alexander: Let’s talk about this more later.
Amanda Setton: Michael Kors and Isaac Mizrahi?
Rebecca Minkoff: Mr. Wang and Mr. Altuzarra?
Glenda Bailey: If I knew, I wouldn’t tell you!
Michelle Trachtenberg: Oscar de la Renta and Charlotte Ronson.
Lynn Yaeger: Marc Jacobs and Thom Browne! Except he’s not Marc’s type.…
Kim Hastreiter: To me, there’s a Marc Jacobs and Nate Berkus thing going on, but he’s not a designer. How about the Rodarte girls? Is there someone they could fall in love with? 
Hilary Alexander: Alexander Wang and Karl Lagerfeld, together at last!
Jason Wu: Aren’t the Vena Cava girls dating the guys from Shipley and Halmos?

Tommy Hilfiger: Calvin Klein and Donna Karan. Who are they? Can you tell me?
Peter Som: My God! That’s a big question mark. All designers love everybody.
Alexa Chung: Dolce and Gabbana.
Jay McCarroll: Dennis Basso and Alexander Wang.
Brad Goreski: Prabal And Chris Benz? Kidding!  
Anne Slowey: I don’t want to out anyone. Love is so dangerous.
Eugenia Gonzalez: Did the Proenza boys fall back in love?
Michael Bastian: It can’t be one of the men’s. We’re all tapped in and know what’s going on.
