GRIN AND BEAR IT: Teddy bears wearing red-carpet attire designed by Oscar de la Renta, Narciso Rodriguez, Reem Acra, Elie Saab, Eileen Fisher, Dana Buchman and other designers were auctioned Monday night to benefit HeartShare, a New York-based nonprofit organization. The event at the Marriott Marquis in New York was to raise $150,000, a HeartShare spokeswoman said.
TOURIST TRAP: Nicole Miller and Bud Konheim, the president and chief executive officer of her company, will take home Leadership in Tourism awards from NYC & Company, a membership organization that serves as the city’s tourism marketing arm. The Dec. 13 event will be at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.
MORE ON MARILYN: Visitors to Trunkt’s show Thursday at the Puck Building in lower Manhattan will find more than independent designers. The late Sam Shaw’s photography book “Marilyn — The New York Years,” is being launched in the U.S. there, and other images that he took of Monroe will also be on display. His daughters, Meta Shaw Stevens and Edith Shaw Marcus, will discuss their father’s work.
SHOWTIME: Part two of Norma Kamali’s celebration for selling her archives to Resurrection will take place Thursday with a screening of never-before-seen films shot and produced by the designer. Resurrection’s Katy Rodriguez and Mark Haddawy and Kamali will be among the first to see “Sweet Dreams,” “The Reading of the Will,” and “Postcards from Coney Island” in the Tribeca Grand’s screening room. After a private dinner party, Matt Damhave will spin records in the hotel’s Church Lounge.
POSTER GIRLS: No one took off their clothes for the 2005 Great American Conservative Women Calendar, but that was to be expected, considering the political makeup of each of the 12 women. Ann Coulter, Condoleezza Rice, Monica Crowley, Phyllis Schlafly, Ted Nugent’s wife, Shemane, Laura Schlessinger and Michelle Malkin are among the prim pinups in the first edition, published by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
Free from any dress code, each calendar girl is featured in a publicity photo wearing a suit or dress — “what they would normally wear,” a spokeswoman for the institute said. “They’re all fully clothed.” The calendar, which has an inspirational quote for each month, will be handed out free on hundreds of college campuses and sold through the institute’s Web site for a $25 tax-deductible donation. Several of the women will sign calendars at various schools. Hundreds of calendars will be donated to the USO for distribution to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.PUBLIC CHAMBERS: The Chambers Hotel is putting a new twist on New York Cares’ annual coat drive. From Dec. 13 to 27, New Yorkers and out-of-towners who drop off gently used coats at the Midtown hotel are invited to linger in its mezzanine over a hot toddy and holiday sweets. The Chambers, at 15 West 56th Street, will offer the refreshments from noon to 6 p.m. daily. Donors will also be given a 10 percent discount for a future stay.
DRESSING SANTA: Wide-eyed children won’t be climbing on Santa’s lap at Saks Fifth Avenue’s New York flagship. The dapper man in red strolling the aisles this month is only there for show, but he is dressed for the occasion. His double-breasted pinstripe suit has been designed by Saks’ men’s wear designer and master tailor Domenico Spano. Adrienne Landau provided the fur trim for his Moxon flannel ensemble. Santa polishes off his look with a top hat, and thanks to Ferragamo, a black leather belt and calf boots.

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)
