JODIE KIDD TO POLO: Following in the footsteps of her father and brother, who are both professional polo players, British model Jodie Kidd will represent England in the Polo Women’s World Championships in July. Although she has only been playing for five years, the English team clearly pegged her as a winner. Kidd will play on a four-woman team at the tournament in Ascot, and no doubt be cheered on by her boyfriend, Tarquin Southwell, a fellow polo player whom she met while mucking out at her brother’s stables.
PRIME OF ADRIEN BRODY: Zegna hit the jackpot this week when Adrien Brody won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in "The Pianist." Brody is featured in the men’s wear company’s spring ad campaign, along with other actors, and has signed a six-month contract to appear exclusively in Zegna’s fall campaign, shot by Steven Klein. But Zegna isn’t capitalizing on Brody’s winning the gold statue: David Lipman, chairman of Lipman, Zegna’s ad agency, said the fall ads were shot in New York several weeks ago. In addition to appearing in the ads, Brody will make appearances on Zegna’s behalf and be outfitted in Zegna for other major events. He wore Zegna to the Oscars.
"The key thing is we believe Zegna is a very intellectual brand…with a lot of meaning. Adrien is such a serious actor and his role in ‘The Pianist’ was so amazing. It moved all of us," said Lipman.

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)
