TRIPLE THREAT: Vanessa Williams on Monday showed up at Carlos Miele’s runway show with her stylist — a celebrity’s best accessory this season. “This is my third show,” she said. “I went to Harlem’s Fashion Row, saw Carmen Marc Valvo and I’ll try to go to Chris Benz. They’re all designers I wear and are mostly friends.” Williams said her new show, “666 Park Avenue,” premieres on Sept. 30, and is about a grand, old apartment building in Manhattan that has powers, mostly dark. She described it as “a splash of ‘Rosemary’s Baby,’ and a hint of ‘The Shining.’” Fashion runs in the family; William’s 19-year-old son is going to fashion school and her 25-year-old daughter is a stylist. “I just launched a skin care line,” she said. “Who knows what’s next.”

Paula Abdul arrived at the same time as Daisy Fuente. “I just came in and I want to see Chado Ralph Rucci, Chris Benz, Douglas Hannant, The Blonds and Vivienne Tam — I’m going to a lot of shows,” Abdul said, adding she has some film and TV projects in the fire, and some live events. Fuentes, whose own runway show is on Wednesday, off-site — her line is sold at Kohl’s — said she’s “deep into development” of her next project and is working with Ellen Rakieten, former executive producer of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
