MURPHY’S LAIR: Art usually imitates life, but at Henri Bendel it’s the other way around — at least this week. On Thursday morning, actress Brittany Murphy is stopping by the store to promote her film, “Uptown Girls,” and the store’s tie-in window. In the flick, the diminutive Murphy plays an heiress who loses her fortune and while down on her luck takes a job in Bendel’s imaginary home department. While they were shooting scenes at the store in the middle of the night, the inexhaustible Murphy asked if she could do some shopping — and, of course, Bendel’s obliged, giving new meaning to the term nightcap.
THE DREAM TEAM: Following earlier word that Donna Karan will be the headline honoree at the Fashion Group International’s 20th anniversary Night of Stars on Oct. 30, the organization has lined up a veritable constellation of other award winners. Dolce & Gabbana, Philip Treacy, Jean Paul Gaultier and Dries Van Noten are among the designers being honored this year, and all are expected to attend the event at Cipriani 42nd Street.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
