Pia and Christopher Getty threw what most people agreed was the Christmas party of the year Wednesday night. After dinner, the first floor of their Upper East Side town house turned into a late-night boite for dessert (buche de Noel and tangerine sorbet with spun sugar) and dancing. The midnight crowd included Gigi and Avie Mortimer, Marina Rust Connor and Ian Connor, Karen and Ferdinand Groos, Nancy Jarecki, Bettina Zilkha, Kalliope Karella, Tory and Chris Burch, Vanessa von Bismarck, Caroline Berthet, Carolina Herrera Jr., Patricia Herrera, Alexandra Shiva, Rachel Peters, Fernanda Niven, Liz Cohen, Jill Roosevelt, Jennifer Creel, Anna Lafont, Mariane Pompidou, Daniel Romauldez, Ayshe Farman-Farmaian and Farhad Farman-Farmaian. Marie Chantal of Greece was in London, but Pavlos, her husband, was a powerful presence on the dance floor, whirling Serena Boardman around on her perilous heels and at one point facing off with Bob Colacello. As the hour pressed past one, Pia Getty (in a backless red Versace) and Rena Sindi (in blue Roberto Cavalli) took the mike to karaoke to Madonna's "American Pie." And at two in the morning, the evening's most eagerly awaited guest finally walked through the doors: Puff Daddy -- in full-on Sean John oversize denim -- who chatted on the sidelines with Chantal Miller until deejay Tom Finn slapped his anthem "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems" onto the turntable. At the first note of the tribute, Puffy glided onto the floor for a spin with Sindi.
Christian Lacroix, master of the pouf skirt, is making his first West Coast appearance in 13 years on Feb. 6, when he presents a runway show of his spring 2001 collection at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills' annual Blue Ribbon luncheon. The next day, he jets up to San Francisco for a benefit, then heads back to Paris to prepare for his March show. It's a sure sign that the house of Lacroix has some awards-show aspirations this year -- especially with devotees Catherine Zeta-Jones and Juliette Binoche topping nominations lists.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

For pre-fall 2018, @etro created richly-colored wonderland, using tapestries, textiles and wallpapers from the Eastern world at large. The line featured floral and graphic prints and jacquard motifs, like this two-piece look featured here. #wwdfashion (📷: Giovanna Pavesi)
@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
