Over the course of a few hit-parade seasons, L’Wren Scott has become the designer to beat for show stopping, body-hugging dresses, reason #1 she’s become a mainstay of the celebrity red carpet. But the footwear she shows along with them has never been available—until now. Two styles have just hit the floor at Barneys, the exclusive retailer for Scott’s Fall ’10 footwear collection, the first to be sold at retail. There’s an ultra-dramatic cutout over-the-knee lace boot that may require a substantial investment of time to get on and off: it’s all laces, no hidden zips to speed things along. (In other words: B.Y.O. Rolling Stone to help.) For those without an extra hour to spare in the morning, it comes in a sleek little lace-up bootie, too, in gray and black.
Over-the-knee boot, $2,725, and cut-out ankle boot, $1,675, available now at barneys.com.
Given that it’s high season for benefits, just about every night offers an opportunity to bid on designer merch for one or another good cause. Tonight is no different: L’Wren Scott has helped to plan the (don’t ask) New York Dermatology Group’s Rx Haiti benefit. But where L’Wren goes, good designers tend to follow, and there’s plenty of I’d-buy-retail on the block. Accessories are a particular strong suit, with bags from Lanvin (top) and Proenza Schouler (bottom), as well as art by Elizabeth Peyton, Sante D’Orazio, and Jack Pierson. Of course, a few friends in high places haven’t hurt, either. Mick Jagger—don’t call him Mr. Scott—has generously donated a few rock treasures, from a signed copy of the Stones’ Exile on Main Street to a signed, cherry red Gibson baby grand. Tickets for tonight’s event are still available at www.nydgfoundation.org, where you can also bid online for an hour this evening.
News about the Met ball continues to pour in: It’ll be a battle of the Mad women, when Stefano Pilati brings January Jones and Tommy Hilfiger brings Christina Hendricks. The redhead will be in good company; Hilfiger is also said to have Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott, John Currin, Zoe Kazan, Peter Som, and Jimmy Fallon at his table. Michael Kors goes for the catwalkers, hosting Carolyn Murphy, Natasha Poly, Chanel Iman, and former model/actresses Brooke Shields and Diane Lane, and Ralph Lauren will sit with Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, and Justin Timberlake.

Chez YSL—Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s apartment, that is—is on the market. $31.4 million buys you a library, a music room, a gym, and plenty of mirrors. [Hint Mag]
The latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s stable of “Icons” for its heritage ad campaign? If the rumors are to be believed, Bono. Coincidentally (or not), Vuitton parent LVMH recently acquired Bono and wife Ali Hewson’s eco-friendly Edun label. [WWD]
More from the Sex and the City 2 front: For her first appearance onscreen, SJP wears (gasp!) Halston. Costume designer Pat Field also had to contend with the Middle Eastern prohibition on exposed shoulders when working on the Abu Dhabi-set film. [L.A. Times via Racked]
And speaking of SATC2, its stars have signed multimillion-dollar contracts not to reveal plot secrets. “I’ve signed my life away to say I won’t tell. I thought: ‘You have got to be kidding! This isn’t state secrets, it’s the f****** script for a movie!” said Samantha, er, Kim Cattrall. (Throw in a couple f******s and it can be hard to tell the difference.) [Vogue U.K.]
