Marni for H&M is so close, there was a mini-"Sex and the City" reunion and Nanette Lepore will judge Project Runway All-Stars

Mini Sex and the City Reunion

Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon had an impromptu “Sex and the City” reunion last week. The ex-castmates headed to Midtown theater haunt Orso after SJP saw Nixon in her play “Wit.” At the restaurant, they ran into Candice Bergen (who played Carrie Bradshaw’s Vogue editor on “SATC”) who was dining with Mike Nichols. “Sarah was thrilled to see Candice,” said a spy, adding, “She let out a little squeal” before they caught up.

It’s Almost Time for Marni for H&M!
H&M’s hotly anticipated collaboration with Italian fashion house Marniwill go on sale in less than 24 hours in select stores nationwide. After months of teasing photos popping up online, the availability of the collection will surely cause a fashion frenzy. Bursting with Marni’s trademark bold prints and chunky accessories created by Consuelo Castiglioni, the adorable togs have already been worn by Drew Barrymore and Sofia Coppola, who directed a commercial for the retailer. Prices start at $19.99 for a sequined collar and bracelets, then head up to $129 for a silk printed maxi-dress and $149 for a patent leather top. The goods go on sale tomorrow March 8.

Nanette Lepore to Judge ‘Project Runway All-Stars’
Nanette Leporewill be the guest judge Thursday night on “Project Runway All Stars” on Lifetime. Lepore’s challenge, posed to the four remaining contestants, was to design a garment that her apparel company could manufacture in New York City. The winning design will be sold in Lepore’s boutiques and online and will carry a special hangtag. All proceeds will benefit the Save the Garment Center organization.“I had fun,” said Lepore, describing the three-day taping that took place last summer. “It was new for me, but it wasn’t that stressful. The stress and panic was in the buildup.” She said she enjoyed working with her fellow judges, including Isaac Mizrahi. “He’s as much fun as he seems,” she said. Although she was unable to divulge the winner of the challenge, 120 units of the winning design have been manufactured. Lepore will host a screening party Thursday night at her Broome Street store in Manhattan, where they will be live tweeting.
