Designer Carmen Marc Valvo has dressed so many celebs he sometimes forgets their names. Trying to remember a certain A-list actress who's a fan of his couture, he said: ''Sex and the City' girl. Blond. Kim Cattrall." Valvo, who's also dressed Queen Latifah, Patti Lupone, and Lucy Liu, showed off his label at the Liberty Hotel the other night as part of a benefit for Ovations for the Cure, an ovarian cancer research organization. Valvo was joined at the party by spa magnate Gretchen Monahan, a regular on "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style." Monahan gabbed about Gunn -- and "Project Runway" -- before the show. "I cannot wait to see the new season on Lifetime, and I can tell you, a little birdie told me it is the best season yet. And I would take that source very well. It's a good source, I promise. A very good source." '
