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.
