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.
