If you’re going to take your life in your hands, might as well do it in evening dress. That’s what David Blaine did when he swam—sans oxygen tank or cage—with a group of great white sharks in an Adam Kimmel tux for the designer’s new video (above). Kimmel and wife Leelee Sobieski screened the short for guests like Ed Norton, Harmony Korine, and Marina Abramovic this week, where it earned Abramovic’s highest praise: “That’s insane.” [NYT]

Derek Lam has announced a standalone line for eBay, the final rundown of which will be crowd-sourced. As one of our online compatriots notes, design by committee hasn’t always yielded the best results, but we’ll be interested to see what Lam turns out when the line launches in February. [WWD]

Lara Stone—she of the sultry ad campaign and often nude editorial—has won her case against French Playboy, which published photos of her without her permission last year. She’s donating her damages to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. [Fashionologie]

And speaking of good causes, here’s another: Nordstrom is finally opening a New York store, which will be a concept shop—one that donates its earnings to nonprofits. That’s a little less sexy than Lara using Playboy money to save the children, but no less commendable, we’re sure. [Racked]
