Bits And Bobs

SHE'S A ONE

Naomi's been playing up again. According to Frank magazine, she's "rumoured to have hit an employee over the head with a mobile phone". Still, we all love her. Apparently "she's so popular with young men that her dress is getting ruined," said a spokesman at Madame Tussaud's of her waxwork doppelganger.

GUILTY GUCCI

Patrizia Reggiani, the wife of Maurizio Gucci, the last family member to head the fashion label, was found guilty of organising his murder. She was given a 29-year jail sentence.

GOING, GOING, GONE

Sotheby's are planning bi-annual fashion sales at the auction house, starting this month. As well as a comprehensive collection of Versace couture (by an anonymous seller) with gowns ranging from pounds 500 to pounds 4,000, there are some 1900s Poiret and 1950s Dior delights to boot.

NO, REALLY?

Supermodel Cindy (above) came out with a few astounding facts. In US magazine Self she revealed that as women get older their bosoms get less pert, and if that wasn't enough, she hit us all square in the face with a "women all grow up to look like their mothers" shock. Stop, Cindy, stop. We'll all be getting coronaries if you keep this up.

VANITY FAIR

Are we over labels? City analysts noticed that the designer clothing market was shrinking and questioned the value of "vanity retailing", the Bond Street megastores in London. More promotional flagship stores than profit-making enterprises, they're apparently eating up designer profits. "I wouldn't like to say who is going to fall out of the balloon out of Gucci, Prada, Calvin Klein and DKNY," said George Wallace, a specialist retail consultant, "but I do not expect them all to thrive and prosperover the coming two to five years."

A ROLLING STONE... Poor Jerry's playing cat and mouse again with that tomcat of a husband, Mick, said to have sought solace in the arms of model Carla Bruni, long rumoured to be a flame of his. Meanwhile, as Fashion Month goes to press, yet another player enters the story. The Sun claims that Brazilian model Luciana Morad is pregnant with Mick's child. If this proves true, it may well be the last straw for the maternally-inclined Jerry.

...GATHERS NO MOSS

Party girl Kate (left) is said to have checked herself into a psychiatric hospital in south-west London after burning the candle at both ends. The Super, never shy of a party, blamed her work-hard play-hard lifestyle. "She has been hitting the bottle a bit." a friend told the Sunday Times. Apparently Kate returned to the UK on the Monday after a trekking holiday in India, joined Meg Mathews and chums for dinner on Tuesday and checked herself in on Wednesday.
