The hemline police speed back in helicopters from the Hamptons for the CFDA Fashion Awards at the New York Public Library. The Oscars of fashion, they will be hosted by the irreplaceable Fran Lebowitz, who will be joined by men most men have never heard of, i.e., Francisco Costa, Lazaro Hernandez, Jack McCollough, Thom Browne, Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs. The swan-necked Carolina Herrera will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Mayor Bloomberg will turn up in (we hope) one of his tulle and organza numbers and accept the vaguely named “Board of Director’s Special Tribute.” Later, Planned Parenthood hosts the One Million Strong Cocktail Party at the Prince George Ballroom, featuring guest speaker and political rabble-rouser Jane Fonda, spawn of the devil so far as our dear ole war vet dad is concerned, who will wax poetic about a woman’s right to choose. (And how about our right to choose unplanned pregnancy and a nine-month exile in Fiji?)

[CFDA Fashion Awards, New York Public Library, 6:30 p.m., invite only; One Million Strong Cocktail Party, 15 East 27th Street, 6 p.m., 212-261-4634]
