NEW YORK — Sen. Hillary Clinton swung by Jessica Seinfeld’s baby shower and fundraiser for her charity, Baby Buggy Inc., which collects new and gently used clothing and gear for underprivileged children in New York, Monday morning at Fred’s at Barneys New York.
"I just admired the idea of this," Clinton said. "Jessica has talked to me about it for 18 months and I wanted to help. With the economy kind of down, I can’t overstate the importance to get help to mothers when they have babies."
And speaking of the economy, does she see it turning around anytime soon?
"I’m concerned about the economy. I don’t think we have a good economic policy in this country and with the war in Iraq and the challenge of SARS, it will be a long time until the attitude changes with very difficult consequences to the states and cities like New York," said Clinton, who was on her way to a health department meeting after addressing the crowd.
Seinfeld said she started Baby Buggy in 2001 after her first child, Sascha, was born, and she was inundated with gifts. She gave birth five weeks ago to her second child, Julian Kal.
"My little idea has flourished and blossomed. When Sascha was born, I received a bunch of gifts. I thought there was a more productive way to use the gifts, not that I gave those gifts away," she quickly added. "There is too much excess in this city."
So far, Baby Buggy has donated 35,000 items of baby gear and clothing to such places as homeless shelters, teenage maternity homes and foster care agencies. In addition to individual donors, Seinfeld has received donations from corporations such as Old Navy, Ralph Lauren Childrenswear and Children’s Place.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
