Friends turn out to support Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger
There was not one, but two reasons to toast to Dee last night! Miami and South Florida’s most stylish came together at David Grutman’s new hotspot Casadonna to raise a glass to the multi-hyphenate on her birthday. ‘Mrs Hilfiger’ was also celebrating her November cover of Ocean Drive magazine. Despite the rain—in Miami, yes really!—guests continued the party all night long, heading to Swan for an after party with the publication’s editor in chief Paige Pulichino. Among those who joined a disco boot-clad Dee and her husband Tommy Hilfiger were Emilio Estefan, Karolina Kurkova, and many more. Bon anniversaire!

Kilian Paris took over The Box for a ‘Smoking Hot Holiday Party’
A good reason to stay out late on a Tuesday? When a premiere Parisian fragrance brand moves in to one of New York’s most infamous nightlife haunts. Kilian Hennessy of cult-status luxury line Kilian Paris was joined by a guestlist of notables who jumped at the chance to meet the master while discovering the newest addition to the portfolio, Smoking Hot. As is to be expected, there was all the usual revelry and hedonism of The Box thanks to live performances throughout the night which nodded to the evening’s theme: ‘Don’t be shy!’ Among those spotted on the dancefloor were Danielle Olivera, Jordan Emanual, Samantha Feher, Dascha Polanco, Lynn Williams, and Gabi Demartino, among many others.
French Connection hosted a holiday party at Laissez Faire
Everyone’s been taking about new subterranean spot Laissez Faire at the Beekman Hotel—I mean, doesn’t it just sound vibey—and last night French Connection showed what all the fuss is about by inviting friends of the London-based international brand to come hang at an exclusive club takeover. Influencers, editors, content creators, and models came out to play in new pieces by the label, making the room look like a French Connection campaign had come to life. Among those in attendance were Christian Bendeck, Maggie McCormack, Drew Jessup, Anthony Urbano, Stephanie Oh, and Nandini Vaid.
