BARNEYS OASIS: Barneys New York is preparing to provide beauty makeovers, of all things, at the Republican National Convention in New York starting later this month. The upscale retailer will set up a complimentary day spa at the media center in the James A. Farley Building across from Madison Square Garden, where about 15,000 journalists will converge. New York’s convention host committee is also weighing whether to install a pool table in the spa, called the Oasis, which will be designed by Barneys’ staff. For women, there will be makeup, mini facials, micro-dermabrasion and waxing. Male journalists needing a lift can expect haircuts, shoeshines, pedicures and hot towels. To help things run smoothly, Barneys will rely on Taylor Piedra, concierge at its Madison Avenue flagship. Barneys is among dozens of businesses sponsoring convention events. “It’s a goodwill gesture” toward the city and visitors, a Barneys spokeswoman said.
A BEAUTIFUL MIND: Who says models aren’t smart? Or, at least, good at trivia. Top model Amanda Moore played bar trivia at Midtown institution Rocky Sullivan’s Thursday night, where snarky quizmaster Liam MacNiallais threw out questions such as, “Who bought New York from the American Indians?” or, “What were the last three movies to win Best Picture Oscars?”
Moore and her team, the Busted Bitches, came in third place, only two points behind the winning Cock Goblins and second-place You Must Be Squidding. “It’s the first time I’ve done this,” she said. “But I’ll do it again next time I’m here.” Even though Moore recently walked the fall couture shows of Elie Saab and Anne Valérie Hash, she sported a pin that said, “Take this couture and shove it.” Indeed. Previously, Jimmy Fallon was spotted partaking of brainy boozing at Sullivan’s, too.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
Beauty influencer @kandeejohnson makes her foray into hair care with a collaboration with @ogx_beauty — making it the first time that OGX has teamed up for a product creation.
