The nautical wedges! The gold-tinted laces! The poppy patterned Top-Siders! Last night, yours truly hit the launch party for the Milly for Sperry Top-sider collab at their Madison Avenue boutique. Prepped-out partygoers ogled the limited-edition capsule collection while champagne flowed and salmon canapés made the rounds more than once. But, enough about the mouth-watering apps. It's all about the chaussures, darling! 

How did the collab come about, Michelle?
Sperry approached me about a year and half ago, and I thought it was an exciting idea. It's such an iconic brand, and I thought it would be fun to put my own twist on it. I've been approached by different brands to collaborate, but I really believe in Sperry Top-Siders. I've been a customer since I was a little girl.

How many pairs do you own?
Six. I have the Classica and all the new fashion pieces.

Do your kiddos have Top-Siders?
They do! They have about three pairs each. 

Where would you never wear Top-Siders? 
I'd probably stay away from wearing them to a serious black-tie event. They could even work for a beach wedding. They'd be great in Nantucket.

Where do you summer? 
We go to Watermill in the Hamptons. 

What kind of water sports do you play?
I like water skiing. I'm not much of a sailor. I tend to get seasick, but I like to sail when the sea is calm, especially on the Mediterranean.

Shows start next week! What's your pre-NYFW guilty pleasure?
A glass of wine in the evening is my guilty pleasure.

David Beckham created a scene on Regent Street last night in London when he made an appearance at H&M to promote his DAVID BECKHAM BODWEAR line. Who doesn't want to see Becks in the flesh? Even Suzy Menkes has given her royal approval: "Lots of people have worked with H&M, so why not David Beckham? I think it’s a really good idea. It means that now everybody can have a bit of him." We concur. You can get in Beck's underwear at 1,300 H&M stores worldwide today. Don't miss his giddy fans reacting to meeting him in this video.

The New York Post put Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady on the front page today because she sent an e-mail to friends yesterday asking them to pray for him to win the Super Bowl on Sunday. And scene... That's the story, folks. Gisele has asked friends to pray for her husband to win a football game, and the e-mail appears on the first page of a New York newspaper. Wowsers. We're devoted Giants fans, but really, Seth? Really?

Goodness has announced a winner to be the resident DJ at their lounge by Renaissance Hotels during fashion week. Congratulations to DJ Travisty! (Major kudos to runner ups DJ Gaspra and DJ Marital!) He's in his sixth year as resident at Affaire (formerly China1) and has opened for a long list of talent including such artists as DJ Icey, Huda Hudia, DJ Funk, Freq Nasty, and Charles Feelgood. (We are not making those names up! We swear!) His bio delights us: "His energy behind the decks is contagious as he dances just as hard as anyone on the dance floor, so whether at a club, lounge, house party, or rave, having Travisty on the 1's and 2's is a guarantee for a booty shaking great time." Whoop, there it is!
