ON THE DOT: Movado is a champion of the arts and the stars of its ad campaign — such as dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and actress Mia Maestro — represent that. But at least one of its brand ambassadors is tapping an art outside her field. "I just finished directing my first music video," actress Kerry Washington said at the brand's fete celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Museum Dial watch at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. While a fan of hip-hop — the video Washington directed was by Common — she, and other guests including Maestro, Baryshnikov, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos and Movado chairman and chief executive Efraim Grinberg all jammed to the tunes of jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. "I've known him forever," said Baryshnikov of Marsalis. The honorees for the second annual Movado Future Legends: Honoring Emerging Artists of Exceptional Talent were also revealed. The recipients included design team Doshi Levien, and dancers Kirk Henning and Doug Letheren.
CFDA'S L.A. BASH: Diane von Furstenberg, along with CFDA executive director Steven Kolb, welcomed Los Angeles CFDA members to her Coldwater Canyon mansion Thursday night for an evening of cocktails and conversation. "We wanted to let you know that we haven't forgotten you," von Furstenberg told the group, including Koi Suwannagate, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, James Perse, Magda Berliner, Louis Verdad, Kevan Hall and Bradley Bayou. "In fact, we are often jealous because everyone in Los Angeles is so cool and stylish." Then she made a beeline for actress Perrey Reeves, who was wearing a vintage DVF print from 1976, and even snapped a photo. After the designer addressed issues ranging from copyright protection to CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund eligibility, one guest said, "I have another question: Can I stay here when you're not home?"
