ROCK ’N’ ROLL RALPH: Bruce Springsteen hit Madison Square Garden Monday night and drew a real fashion crowd, including Ralph and Ricky Lauren, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and Saks Fifth Avenue senior vice president of merchandising Jaqui Lividini. As for Lauren, it was his first-ever Springsteen concert but he’s been a long-time fan and observers noted the designer and Ricky boogying to the tunes. Springsteen also loves Ralph, having bought a slew of RRL T-shirts for his wardrobe.
ROYAL WEDDING: Lisa Marie Presley chose a strapless, silk taffeta wedding gown by Badgley Mischka to wear for her nuptials to actor Nicolas Cage last weekend in Hawaii. But Presley didn’t mind buying off-the-rack. According to sources, the daughter of the King picked up the dress at the designers’ boutique in Beverly Hills.
MISSING MARISA: Renaming a brand is no easy feat. But that’s what the folks at the Toronto-based ready-to-wear lineMarisa Minicucci are up to, since Minicucci left her namesake label in June. She has been replaced by Susan Lazar. Executives at Zenobia, Marisa Minicucci’s parent firm, said the decision is still up in the air, but Zenobia is a contender for the new title. Meanwhile, Zenobia president Barry Bly is banking on the designer and plans to grow the business between 15 and 20 percent in 2003. He said, though, that putting Lazar’s name on the label is unlikely.

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)
