(NEW YORK) "Can you believe that body?" said Linda Wells last night at the Tod's boutique, where she hosted a shopping event to benefit the R.E.S.T Initiative. Wells wasn't referring to fellow co-host Derek Lam but in fact Fergie, who shows off her awe-inspiring figure on the July cover of Allure. The crowd of chicsters and beauty experts (Michael Carl, Paul Cavaco, et al) was just as fit, despite the ever-tempting, free-flowing champagne and lobster skewers passed about the Madison Avenue flagship.

Lam greeted the coterie of Helen Schifter, Julia Moore, and Kelly Bensimon before being shown a rather unusual product--some sort of appliance cleansing kit--from a developer of femme-friendly tool kits and equally tecchy fare. "I am so into this!" he exclaimed, visibly enthused, before indulging a reporter inquiring about his collection of driving loafers. "I can't even count how many I have," he confesssed. "Every time I go into the studio, they send me another pair because I fall in love with a new color." While the Tod's creative director remains equally focused on his eponymous brand, which recently opened its first freestanding store on Howard Street, he does intend to use the summer for one of its original purposes. "Vacation is critical," he said. "Hello, Fire Island!"
