GIVING HER THE SLIP: When New York Post columnist Cindy Adams took a swipe at a dress worn by Naomi Campbell last week at her Christmas party, calling it "some white Brazilian outfit by some white Brazilian whose name she spelled. Something like Miehle," it was obvious she was referring to Carlos Miele — who has appeared in the Post several times. But the designer didn’t complain about her apparent lack of recognition, or the misspelling. Instead, he followed up on Monday, sending her a pair of stretch denim panties, with his name on the label.
MARC IN HN: The Christmas wish of every London-girl-about-town has finally come true. In February, Marc Jacobs will open his first in-store boutique in Harvey Nichols. The store — which will be Jacobs’ first in Europe — will be an 850-square-foot space on the first floor of the Knightsbridge store. "We felt it was the right time to do it," said Anne Pitcher, buying director for women’s wear at Harvey Nicks. "Spring was one of his best shows to date, it’s certainly something our customers have been waiting for." The Marc by Marc Jacobs diffusion line will relocate from the second to the third floor, while accessories will remain on the ground floor.
BARD NEWS: William Shakespeare’s "Hamlet" looks set to be one of 2003’s hottest tickets in London’s West End — with Jude Law tipped to play the lead. Law is said to be in talks with the Ambassador Theatre Group, which has a joint venture — Natural Nylon Theatre Group — with Law’s production company Natural Nylon. Earlier this year, Law trod the boards with great success as Dr. Faustus at the Young Vic.
MUSICAL WEARS: German electro-clash label International Deejay Gigolos is celebrating its 100th release and fifth anniversary with some exclusive underthings. Since the Gigolos logo is the snarling face of Sid Vicious and since he professes to "like girls and knickers," the label’s founder, Helmut Geier, asked Malcolm McLaren offspring Joe Corre of Agent Provocateur to collaborate.
There will be only 500 pairs of the limited- edition sheer briefs printed with Vicious flexing his biceps. Although Agent Provocateur has a strict policy of selling solely through its own boutiques, the kinky collector’s item will be also be available at Colette in Paris, Apartment in Berlin, Slips in Munich and Seven in New York.

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)
