When designers branch out into markets that are hardly their own, it's always fun to see if it's going to be a success or a train wreck.  With that in mind, who's not excited to see the mock-ups of Roberto Cavalli's new dance club in Dubai?  The rendering looks cheap, and we don't see any animal print in the interior decoration!  Honestly, Roberto--abandoning you morals so quickly?

Simon Doonan and longtime partner Jonathan Adler will tie the knot in California in mid-September.  Ever the quipster, Doonan is foregoing a big bash, saying "I always thought we were married, so I don’t feel like celebrating the
fact that the government’s allowing me to think I’m married. It’s more
like paying a parking ticket.” A long, long overdue parking ticket, sir. [The Cut]

Christian Siriano, everyone's favorite androgynous pixie, has unveiled his new line on Bluefly.com as part of his winning package from last season's Project Runway.  It's cute stuff if you need to suggest a few things for the drab hag in your life, and each piece has Siriano-esque names such as "Posh" (who is one of his biggest supporters) and "Transylvania."  As long as there's no "fierce" I'm fine.

Men's Fashion Week is underway in New York, and I'm sitting here blogging about it rather than sitting there watching....which was not the case last year...excuse me while I make a few calls.  [Material Interest]

In case you were wondering, Girogio Armani wears a speedo.  You go, girl! [Socialite Life]

Mike Albo goes on a gay shopping adventure in Provincetown for The International Herald Tribune...and doesn't make it much farther than Marc by Marc Jacobs. [IHT]
