Marc JACOBS is quite the prankster. In September, the spirited designer staged his runway show in reverse. Then he designed a Louis Vuitton bag covered in bad jokes. Now, Jacobs is trying to pull a fast one by selling two nearly identical floral rings that come with one big difference -- a whopping $875 price gap. The oversized poppy design comes in two versions.

And now, it looks like the actress' wardrobe tactics have paid off. Ryder is appearing in Jacobs' spring advertising campaign, which was shot by lensman Juergen Teller at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. Jacobs, who presents his fall collection in New York on Monday, was unavailable for comment.

IF Hilary Duff was out of breath, then no wonder. With a black beanie pulled low over her newly browned locks, she breezed into St. Vibiana's just as the lights on the Marc by Marc Jacobs show went down. It had to have been a quick drive downtown from the Chanel party in Beverly Hills, but you do what you have to do when your calendar is crowded with celebrity-studded, cross-town events. On Sept. 20, two labels with cult-like followings held major L.A. fashion bashes.

The most popular season for fragrance buying is upon us, and with it, the clouds of perfume that mark the entrance to many department stores. Looking for a whiff of Marc Jacobs' vampy new Lola? How about Thierry Mugler's Alien Liqueur de Parfum, which is aged in oak casks? Even if most shoppers aren't actively seeking the stars of the fragrance world, they will get a sniff as they run the gantlet of atomizer-armed perfume girls who gleefully spritz shoppers and keep stores joyfully aromatic.

PARIS -- Belgian designer Dries Van Noten is the man of the moment at Paris Fashion Week, with an exhibition devoted to his career set to open later this week at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. "Dries Van Noten: Inspirations," open March 1 to Aug. 31, will explore Van Noten's influences, including folkloric textiles and fine art, with music and film clips shedding light on the creative process behind the business he launched in 1986. The fall 2014 collection that Van Noten showed on the runway Wednesday was certainly celebratory, what you'd expect from someone on a high note.
