Guaranteed by the central government and The Daily’s seal of stylish approval…AVAILABLE: $597, Luisaviaroma.com…

For the first time ever, Calvin Klein will be airing a thirty second spot during the Super Bowl on Sunday. (Quick refresher: That’s the game with the BeyoncÃ© concert in the middle of it.) Fabien Baron directed the commercial starring hottie Matt Terry, which will air just before the end of the first quarter.
Love a stylin’ sibling act, don’t we all? Kate Mara and Rooney Mara did it up on the tapis rouge in Dolce & Gabbana and Band of Outsiders, respectively, at the premiere of the House of Cards, the new Netflix series the sisters are starring in together. We knew some serious football cred ran in the Mara fam, but apparently chicness (and/or excellent stylists, perhaps) does, too.
Wondering what’s become of the non-Hilfiger half of NAHM? Nary Manivong kicked off his first Kickstarter campaign with a soirÃ©e at a Flatiron loft last night. Manivong held his first fashion show in 2005, and put his solo line on hold when he decided to partner up with Ally Hilfiger to launch NAHM. After they parted ways in December, Manivong decided it was time to get back in the game. His plan? To get enough love (of the monetary variety) to reach his $25,000 goal through donations on crowd-fundraising site Kickstarter.
DKNY is time traveling back to the nineties by way of Opening Ceremony. The New York-based brand is teaming up with the retailer on a limited-edition capsule collection comprised of 15 DKNY items, reissued from the nineties archive, including the iconic skyline print you’ve been missing circa ’92. Expect hooded sweatshirts, color-blocked, zip-front jumpsuits, bodysuits, logo tees, puffers, and leggings that will retail between $145 and $665. The best part? The buzzy collab is slated to hit Opening Ceremony locations tomorrow in New York. Los Angeles, Toyko, and London, along with OpeningCeremony.Us.
It’s a winning day for Naomi Campbell. The supe of all supes has won her legal battle with The Telegraph over a faux story that she was planning an elephant polo match in India. The Telegraph has now apologized and paid substantial libel damages to ‘Omi on a story that claimed she was organizing the tournament to celebrate her partner Vladislav Doronin’s 50th birthday.
You probably didn’t remember this when you woke up this morning, but it’s Carol Channing’s birthday today. The fashion icon and Broadway legend, who famously never missed a show in her 4,500 performances in Hello, Dolly, turns 92. She’s still got it!
Stylish supper alert! Joe Fresh founder and creative director, Joe Mimran and The Aesthete honored artist Richard Phillips at the New Museum with a cocktail reception followed by dinner. For the uninitiated, The Aesthete is a digital magazine supported by Mimran that brings together an eclectic coterie of influential New York folks, celebrating the minds that weave the cityâ€™s cultural fabric. So who are these characters of note? Glamorous guests included the likes of Cynthia Rowley, Johan Lindeberg, Ann Dexter Jones, Matthew Settle, Annabel Tollman, Mickey Boardman, and Peter Davis. Exploring the parallels between Phillips’ paintings and his passion for motor sports, The Aesthete’s EIC Adrian Mainella presented Constants and Variables, a Baldomero Fernandez film. Between art, culture, style, and fast cars, there’s a little something for everyone.
