Appeared InCALVIN SAYS HOLA, MIAMI: Calvin Klein has another Miami manse. "It's all white, of course," said Klein on Saturday night at Paul Wilmot's poolside dinner party during Art Basel Miami Beach. "And there is no art on the walls, but a few people on Friday night said they were relieved that they didn't have to look at any more art!" The house, which is located in North Miami, overlooks the bay and was originally a Twenties Spanish-style villa. "I wanted it to feel like you were on the Mediterranean, say in Greece or something." Klein, who spent Art Basel at various fairs and parties, isn't totally antiart, however. "I collect antiquities, things that you wouldn't hang on the wall," he said.

In addition to his new home — which took almost a year to perfect — Klein kept a small apartment closer to the South Beach action on lower Collins Avenue. But he hasn't always been a Florida fan. "Not at all," he admitted. "I used to have a house in Palm Beach, but I had decided I never wanted to be in Florida again. After five or six New York winters, I changed my mind." Klein also has a house in Rio, where he plans to spend the holidays. "I like hearing people speak Spanish," he said. And maybe a little Portuguese, too.
TWINKLE TOES: On Saturday, a fantastical confection of children, candy and costumes took over the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center for the Nutcracker Family Benefit, hosted by the New York City Ballet and School of American Ballet. Organized by chairmen Christy Turlington, Pamela Schein Murphy and Kristen Kennedy Clark and attended by Gwyneth Paltrow, Blythe Danner, Mariska Hargitay, Michael J. Fox, Donna Karan and their families, the benefit raised money for the School of American Ballet's scholarship fund and the NYCB's education and outreach program. "The performance brings you back to a time in your life when everything was enchanting and magical," said Hargitay. Of the benefit's sponsor, Marc Jacobs, Turlington said, "It was only natural for him to be a sponsor. He makes beautiful clothes for kids."
