Forget living in a material world: Madonna was all about giving back at the Fashion Delivers charity gala last week. Decked out in up-to-there Stella McCartney stretch boots, the superstar took the stage at the Waldorf Astoria to introduce Fashion Delivers honoree Neil Cole, who is also her partner on the Material Girl collection. “He is a man who gets things done,” she told several hundred fashion insiders, including Kenneth Cole, LF USA’s Rick Darling, MMG Inc.’s Allan Ellinger and honorees Tommy Hilfiger and Liz Sweney of JCPenney. “Thanks, [Neil], for making the world a better place.” Though Madonna joked that she, Cole and their lawyers had logged plenty of time together, Cole admitted he still gets a bit starstruck. “It’s amazing to be handed this award by the biggest entertainer of our generation,” he said. For Hilfiger, who was introduced by Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren, the gala was the last in a week-long marathon of fashion events. Next up, he said, is a tour across Europe, where he’ll make stops in Paris, Copenhagen and London. “It’s been like a six-day [wedding],” he said of the week. “[But] it’s fun. I love doing it.”
