Louis Vuitton is not the only one on a high-fashion jewelry kick. Versace has announced the launch of an Atelier jewelry collection this Sunday at the Italian brand’s Couture show in Paris. The range includes 16 hand-sculpted rings made of precious stones from diamonds to sapphires. “As a designer and collector of fine jewelry, I have always wanted to offer the same quality of craftsmanship in jewelry as we offer with the Atelier Versace fashion collection,” said Donatella Versace.

It sure pays to have designer friends. Newlywed Margherita Missoni made her first outing as a married woman at the Missoni menswear show in Milan, carrying a transparent, pearlized bag by Paco Rabanne. The bag was a gift from the designer, who crafted the piece just for Missoni. [Vogue U.K.]

Downtown, the toast continued with the fourth annual Remember the Time Michael Jackson Tribute Party hosted by Andre Harrell and Richie Akiva. [Page Six]

Girl Power, All Grown Up

“I’m the token man,” Salman Rushdie half-joked at last night’s Women: Inspiration & Enterprise cocktail party. It’s true, he was entirely outnumbered. The celebratory rooftop fête (with a short set by Estelle) capped off a day-long symposium hosted by Donna Karan, Sarah Brown, and Arianna Huffington (pictured), that featured a formidable showing of the fairer sex—notable panel speakers included Queen Rania of Jordan, Jimmy Choo’s Tamara Mellon, Nora Ephron, and Christy Turlington Burns. Rushdie, for his part, seemed to be enjoying the ratio just fine. “He loves women!” writer pal Kathy Frette, who stepped in to emcee a panel last minute, chimed in. “I’ve known for Salman for 25 years. We have a group of women that get together, and he’s the only male invited.”

Proceeds from the inaugural symposium went to benefit the White Ribbon Alliance, which aims to bring international awareness to maternal health issues worldwide. That’s something co-host (and mother) Karan is passionate about; the designer curated a runway show for the cocktail that featured white dresses (meant to symbolize purity and rebirth) donated by the likes of Stella McCartney, L’Wren Scott, and Marchesa. For those feeling for some relatively guilt-free shopping, pieces will go for auction on CharityBuzz.com. Coming off a hectic fashion week, you would think Karan would have runway fatigue, but the designer was amped from the day’s speakers. “The symposium was amazing. I mean, the stories you heard were just incredible,” she said. “How can you not believe in change in the world when you get such an amazing group of women together?”
