STILL FRIENDS: Following Eva Mendes' trip to rehab, some wondered what her status was with Calvin Klein — since she was tapped for an upcoming perfume ad campaign. Well, it appears that no love is lost, as Mendes stopped by the Madison Avenue store Wednesday, where she was given several items by designer Francisco Costa himself. The actress was celebrating her 34th birthday and, among many items, received a gray cashmere turtleneck.

MIU MIU MAKES A MOVE: Miu Miu is about to get some new London digs. The brand will open its first London flagship at 150 New Bond Street, on the corner of Bruton Street, not far from the Stella McCartney and Matthew Williamson boutiques. According to a Prada spokeswoman, the new store will open in the spring of 2010, and span the ground floor and lower ground floor for a total of 3,800 square feet. It's currently empty, but the former occupant was Ungaro.

DELAYED PLEASURE: It's never too late for the Scots to party. Although Burns Night — in honor of the poet Robert Burns — usually takes place on Jan. 25, Ewan McGregor and his pals postponed their pleasure and held a party on Monday night instead. McGregor, Lady Helen Taylor, Amy Sacco, KT Tunstall, Chrissie Hynde, Sharleen Spiteri, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Mary McCartney gathered at St. Martin's Lane hotel to pay homage to the bard. "I know we're a bit late this year but we couldn't let Burns Night pass us by without having our usual party," said McGregor, referring to the scheduling conflicts that prevented the party from taking place in January. The event raises money for the CLIC Sargent charity, and the Children's Hospice Association in Scotland. The Scottish bagpipe band the Red Hot Chilli Pipers blew their horns; McGregor and Spiteri sang a duet, and Tunstall sang.

OPENING THE DOOR: Elizabeth Arden's newly retooled retail store at 691 Fifth Avenue is getting a high-profile visitor today: Catherine Zeta-Jones, the brand's color cosmetics face. Zeta-Jones, in town to snip the bright red ribbon on the door and discuss the brand's newest lipstick line at a breakfast with beauty editors, is expected at the store around 11 a.m.
