THE BIG CHILL: Wearing a black Azzedine Alaia dress and standing in front of the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship, president Marigay McKee participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday night, and had a bucket of ice water dumped on her head. McKee was nominated by lifelong friend and Tommy Hilfiger’s wife, Dee Ocleppo. In turn, McKee nominated Bloomingdale’s chief executive officer Tony Spring, Bergdorf Goodman’s president Josh Shulman and Barneys ceo Mark Lee to complete the challenge within the next 24 hours. In addition, Saks made a donation to the cause. Others who completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this week include Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue, and Mindy Grossman, ceo of HSN Inc.
