Emanuel Ungaro is set to make a big comeback next season, and this time around, Lindsay Lohan is not involved. Aeffe has signed on to relaunch the French fashion house with the help of its newly announced creative director, up-and-coming talent Fausto Puglisi. Of the Sicilian designer (the man behind many Madonna and Anna Dello Russo getups), Aeffe chairman Massimo Ferretti tells WWD, “Emanuel Ungaro is a brand that has left a significant mark and still has a lot to say. Puglisi is a young talent with an international visibility, but with strong roots in our Latin world, and who will be able to turn it into a new and contemporary line.” The license for the global production and distribution for the line, an agreement between Ungaro owner Asim Abdullah and his investment vehicle Aimz, will be active for a seven-year period with option to renew.
Maybe the much talked-about new White House social secretary, Jeremy Bernard, had something to do with it, or perhaps it’s because it’s an election year, but this weekend’s 98th annual Correspondents’ Association Dinner was its most star-studded ever. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan made appearances, mingling with the President and the First Lady, as well as the usual array of politicians and journalists. At the top of our best-dressed list stand Kate Hudson in a dazzling purple Jenny Packham gown, Dakota Fanning (pictured) in an embellished, sky blue Prada number, and Elizabeth Banks, who sported a bright red Antonio Berardi column with a peplum waist.

Dolce & Gabbana have found their ideal poster boy (literally) in David Gandy, who’s starred in many of the label’s menswear campaigns and runway shows.

Next up for the Standard: its own airline. André Balazs’ do-no-wrong hotel group has launched its own mini plane service, StndAIR, offering flights to the Hamptons in a plane painted the Standard’s own cherry red. Here’s hoping for a liftoff from the Boom Boom. [W]

Alaïa speaks! The reclusive designer spared a word or two when he showed a few Fall looks to a gathered mass in Paris. Here’s what he had to say of fashion’s frantic pace: “It’s inhumane…too many collections; too much pressure.” [WWD]
The Times takes on a controversial topic: the dress code of the court appearance. Lindsay Lohan—a frequent guest of the L.A. County courthouse—tends to go high and tight (like her recent white Kimberly Ovitz number); her old friend Nicole Richie used to go classier in Breakfast at Tiffany’s-style black; and as for Naomi Campbell, she, of course, wears her good friend Azzedine Alaïa.
