Milan Front-Row Report: McDreamy Who? It’s Roberto Bolle!Until the end of the week, the front rows of the Milan shows were a lovely reminder celebrities exist in nationalities other than American.

Video: Padma and Alberta Go Way BackIntrepid socialite-cum-reporter Fabiola Beracasa hit the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti presentation, where she found Elle’s Nina Garcia, Vanity Fair’s Alexis Bryan, and reality-television hostess Padma Lakshmi (who, long before she was intimidating the hell out of Top Chefs, was modeling for Alberta Ferretti in Milan).

With the collections hitting Bryant Park for the last time (please, Mayor Bloomberg, don’t make us hoof it to the Javits Center), we’re armed and ready for the season’s big changes.
London calling: One of Fashion Week’s hottest invites will be missing this season. Marc by Marc Jacobs is now showing across the pond, coinciding with the opening of the designer’s new flagship store.
Model down! Runway favorite Gemma Ward is skipping the season to shoot The Black Balloon with Toni Collette. We’re not saying Ward was typecast or anything, but she is playing a pretty young thing. Couldn’t she work in a coal mine?
Target hawker Isaac Mizrahi makes his grand comeback with a new collection and show on Monday, February 5, at 475 Tenth Avenue, near 36th Street.
Jeremy Scott is moving his often ridiculous, always outrageous show back to Paris, where he debuted in ‘97. We’ll miss the strip-club after-party.
After first canceling his show (his “goods” didn’t arrive on time), Stephen Burrows is now hosting a fall press preview. Tara Subkoff and Trovata shows, however, aren’t rising from the dead. Trovata split earlier this year citing “creative differences.”
