Just in time for the holidays, of course, Gucci is introducing its “U-Play” timepiece along with a $70,000 to benefit UNICEF’s “Schools for Africa” initiative. The limited edition watch features an interchangeable bezel and bracelet decked out in silver Guccissima leather. “I visited Malawi with UNICEF at the end of last year and saw the very difficult situation children face,” said the brand's creative director Frida Giannini. Since 2005, Gucci has donated over 9 million dollars---and counting---to the organization. THE DETAILS: $750, Gucci stores and gucci.com.

The standout star of last night's BG bash, celebrating Linda Fargo and David Hoey's new tome, Windows of Bergdorf Goodman, was performer Prince Poppycock, whose elaborate getup and dramatic entrance (via carriage) sent shock waves down the spine of Fifth Avenue. C'est qui? "A roguish operatic dandy with a persona and repertoire that drew on all John [Andrew Quale's] varied influences as a performer and a musician," according to PrincePoppycock.com. OK, OK---but what we really want to know: Who did that makeup?

In the who-knew-they-were-friends department: Margaret Russell hit the red carpet with Bravo's Andy Cohen at Riverpark last night, where the former was feted as the new EIC of Architectural Digest. Is there a TV project in the works? Do we need to spend more time reading THR?

Finally—resort collections are hitting stores, and as you begin your browsing, Dion Lee's Rorschach Magyar silk-crepe jacket isn't a terrible place to start. This digital-print masterpiece, complete with cutaway sleeves, is the sort of thing Chic is craving after all that Fall tweed and leather. Just pair it with some bargain-priced Decades Denim and the four-figure price tag (sort of) evens it all out. Warning: size 6 is already sold out...THE DETAILS: $1,220, net-a-porter.com

As evidenced by last week's PA at Saks, Haider Ackermann apppears to have an almost embarrassingly ardent fanbase. The designer's newest A-list admirer? None other than Karl Lagerfeld, who tells November Numero, "I have a contract [at Chanel] for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann.” No wonder he invited him to the house's Spring 2011 show at the Grand Palais.
