The other glamorous First Lady is heading to the Silver Screen. Spanish paper El Mundo is reporting that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy will star in Woody Allen's latest flick. [El Mundo]

Just announced: Alber Elbaz protégé Cedric Charlier has been tapped to revive the wilted French label of Cacharel. We hope he likes prints.

Arty Party

Thank goodness fashion tires of trends quickly (last season's "recession chic" cast a dour pall over our festivities). But spring '10 is already looking up, and the strongest trend taking shaping is one we can get behind: art collaborations. Photographer (and Women Models founder) Paul Rowland will kick off the New York shows with a fete for Supreme and V in a hot new Chelsea penthouse space that might just give Milk Studios a run for its money... Meanwhile, Croatian wonder Damir Doma will be arting up the Soho Grand with a conceptual installation called Silent... Always adept at the art of being fashionable (or the fashion of being arty?), Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Andy Valmorbida are following up last season's exhibit with an homage to legendary painter Richard Hambleton. The duo will host a dinner at Armani and a top-secret opening bash... Not to be outdone that night, MOMA has recruited Linda Evangelista to host the opening of interior designer Ron Arad's No Discipline exhibit... Deitch Projects and Vogue are hosting The Open, a groups show of emerging artists at the epic Deitch Studios on the East River... Graduating from mannequin manhandling and basement dungeons, the crew at Bland is having a full-blown performance at Cherry Lane Theatre... Then there's the much-rumored threeasfour collaboration with Yoko Ono at Milk Studios, as well as the launch of Pop’s Damien Hirst-designed covers... The week will wrap up with a bang at the New Museum: the launch of Shoot, Rizzoli's valentine to the point-and-shoot revolution, showcasing the work of Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans and Juergen Teller. Collections, collectors, collectibles and collabos—can you handle it? Of course, we'll trust you to use your own wiles to shimmy your way in. Or just stay tuned.

Safe Deposit Box

No one knows better than fashion's finest that charity is always in vogue. To prove it, some of the world's most stylish celebs from fashion, music and entertainment have partnered with megabrand H&M and Designers Against AIDS to create Fashion Against AIDS, a special-edition series of T-shirts celebrating sex—of the safe variety. High-wattage names like Dita von Teese, Yoko Ono, Estelle, N.E.R.D, Roisin Murphy, Katy Perry and Cyndi Lauper lent their time and talent to help design these frisky creations that serve as a reminder to keep your wits about you when enjoying life's carnal pleasures. The best thing about the 80s-inspired slogan tees? Twenty-five percent of the campaign sales will be donated to projects promoting HIV/AIDS awareness. Fashion and charity aren't mutually exclusive, and we adore anything that says it loud and proud. Available in nearly 1000 H&M stores in 30 countries beginning May 28.
