CAVALLI’S HORSES: His clothes may be covered in leopard spots and zebra stripes, but Roberto Cavalli’s favorite animal is much tamer. With a last name that means horses in Italian, it’s no surprise the designer not only raises horses, but has been collecting statues of them for most of his adult life. Now, however, Cavalli is putting his money where his name is by taking his passion to the next level — racing. On Wednesday night, for the first time, Cavalli’s horse, Love Money, not only raced at Milan’s Hippodrome, but won. The jockey, Mirco Demuro, took his fashion cue from Cavalli and sported a leopard print jacket and beret.
MOVIES AND MAGS: Who’d have pegged Sissy Spacek for a party hopper? Wednesday night she walked the press line at a screening of her new movie, “A Home at the End of the World,” in a black suit and on the arm of her daughter, Schuyler Fisk, who sported a black Marc Jacobs dress. Skipping the movie entirely, the pair changed into jeans (at least Fisk’s were Abercrombie) and zipped to the Hotel Gansevoort for the launch of the A&F Magazine in which Fisk is featured as an up-and-comer. (Though she has yet to release an album, she compares her sound with Sheryl Crow’s.) “It’s just been such a busy night for both of us,” Spacek said as she raced to the Maritime for the after-party for the film. “So many parties!”
Also at the Abercrombie launch were showbiz offspring Dimitri Hamlin (son of Harry), Jack Huston (grandson of John, nephew of Anjelica) and Ivanka Trump (daughter of Donald), as well as Abercrombie shutterbug Bruce Weber.
LULU JUICE: Designer Lulu Guinness proved that Wednesday night’s rain was nothing a little Cointreau and charitable shopping couldn’t brighten up. The British handbag maven, dressed in a chic black dress, pearls and red lipstick, welcomed guests at her Bleecker Street boutique to honor her participation in Contreau’s Cointreauversial” ad campaign. Warmed perhaps by Guinness’ sangria (Remy Martin, Piper Heidsick, Cointreau, grape juice and fruit) and snacks from Da Silvano, guests such as Charlotte Ronson, Lucy Sykes and her pregnant sister Alice spilled out of the tiny boutique and onto the sidewalk. Fifteen percent of the sales inside were donated to Safe Space, a New York City charity for underprivileged and abused children.GOODBYE, FERRAGAMO: Four months into the job, Fulvio Zendrini has resigned as international head of communications and advertising at Ferragamo, just as the Ferragamos are investing to build a solid management team to be more competitive and boost sales.
Zendrini was part of a trio hired by the family, which includes Herve Martin as product general manager and Nathalie Gervais as creative director. The family made no secret of wanting to give the appointees more authority and control. A source close to the $600 million luxury goods group said Zendrini, whose versatile characteristics spilled over to other sectors, resigned because of conflicting viewpoints with Martin and other key staff members.
In his new book “Hollywood Royale,” Andy Warhol’s Protégé Matthew Rolston celebrates the Eighties revival of Hollywood glamour.

25-year-old @samweaving is about to break out this fall, starring in Netflix’s horror film “The Babysitter,” fittingly out today on Friday the 13th. That’s not the only place you’ll be seeing her, though — Weaving’s got a role Showtime’s “SMILF” and another alongside Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Though she’s got a full plate at the moment, there’s one role she’s got her eye on: Marilyn Monroe. “I’m a little too young at the moment, but it’s on my bucket list,” the actress told WWD (📷: @dandoperalski) #wwdeye

After designing the new @louisvuitton and @bulgariofficial flagships and a @chanelofficial boutique opening in Japan, @petermarinoarchitect has another project on his plate: The Lobster Club.

Did you know: @carlychaikin of "Mr. Robot" has been painting for about a decade? The actress, who plays Darlene on the show, is a self-taught artist who lists Salvador Dalí and Chuck Close as some of her idols. Chaikin told WWD that painting is a form of meditation for her — A much-needed one given the intensity of "Mr. Robot." See a piece Chaikin is working on at WWD.com (📷: @jilliansollazzo) #wwdeye
