Johnny Weir is busyyyy. Seriously - that word needs at least four y's when applied to the guy who's been called the "Lady Gaga of skating." He's got a new book ("Welcome to My World"), song ("Dirty Love") and another season of his reality show ("Be Good Johnny Weir") in the works.

"But this week it's all about the fashion," he says. If he's not IN a show (Asher Levine, Richie Rich, Indashio, Elise Overland and furrier Adrienne Landau), skating at one (Overland), or designing for another (he's created a small capsule collection for Landau), then he's sitting front row. Like at Tadashi Shoji, which he attended Friday in a massive lynx coat and samurai ponytail - "a weave," he confirmed, flipping it round.

"I'm so glad to be here," he said. "Last year I was in the Olympics and couldn't make it here to support my friends."

And in case you're wondering, yes, somewhere on his "To Do" list is "getting back in shape to compete again."

HIGH NOTE: So who's on the guest list for Diane von Furstenberg's Sunday afternoon show? None other than Renee Fleming, arguably one of the world's greatest opera singers, who was spotted lunching at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on Friday.

Fleming, who looked smashing in a gold top and raw diamond earrings, said she was excited about Fashion Week's move to Lincoln Center. "It's so convenient now," she said.

DVF is her first fashion show at this location. "I've gone to Oscar before, but never anything here." It's appropriate that Fleming attend von Furstenberg's show, which heralds "American Legends." "It will be Three Divas," said Fleming. We're wondering who the third is?
