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.

Nicole Richie, Working Woman

-------

In a sequestered corner on Bergdorf Goodman’s seventh floor last night, Nicole Richie was a long ways from The Simple Life. “I honestly am so thankful for where I am right now,” Richie said at the BG-hosted fête for her line House of Harlow 1960. “It’s so great to reach a point where you see your pieces on a woman on the street and she looks amazing, but she may not even know it was me that was behind it. She likes it for what it is.” Anonymity in this digital age is a luxury, but it also has its limits; a crush of photographers circled Richie for the rest of the event. The former reality star, however, is just fine juggling press, family, and work. “I’m a Virgo,” she said. “I’m a born multitasker.”

The designer and entrepreneur will soon be putting those balancing skills to use. Between trips to Paris, New York, and L.A. this past month and then market appointments and touring with husband Joel Madden’s band Good Charlotte in March, Richie is racking up the frequent-flyer miles. Jet-lag be damned, she brought the glamour in a strapless bustier dress and a Veronica Lake wave to her very blond hair. “She’s really hit her stride and it shows,” Bergdorf’s Linda Fargo said. “She’s especially beautiful tonight in this old-screen-siren-meets-modern-girl way. It’s very Harlow.” The fashion director is gearing up for a busy New York fashion week and was heading home to strategize wardrobe choices for the next seven days, something Richie won’t have to worry about this season around. “I’m strictly here to work, so I’m not attending any shows,” she said, though pals Charlotte Ronson and Tracy Anderson stopped in to say hello. “I’m headed back to L.A. and then I’ll be back next week to meet with retailers.” While in town, she will make time for one NYC pit stop. “The Smile,” Richie said of her favorite city spot. “I always get the egg sandwich—it’s the best.”
