Freckleface, The Stocking Stuffer


It was an adult sort of party that Julianne Moore hit last night, for the debut of the all-nude Pirelli calendar, but her afternoon, at least, was child’s play. Moore was the guest of honor at a lunch thrown by Tod’s at its Madison Avenue boutique in celebration of her latest kids’ book, Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever. Freckleface, the diminutive redhead star of the series, has undergone quite a development arc over her three adventures. “First we introduced her. Then we had a whole thing about dodgeball,” Moore explained. “This one she becomes best friends with the kid she used to be afraid of, but then they break up. I’m not going to tell you the end!” Although, she admitted with a laugh, “The title might give it away.”

Social moms like Lucy Sykes, Jamie Tisch, Allison Aston, and the event’s hostesses, Lauren Santo Domingo, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, Melanie Charlton Fascitelli, and Celerie Kemble lined up to get copies signed for Christmas gifting—many buying two or three at once. Moore’s own kids, alas, are too old for Freckleface gifts. “They want iPods and clothes,” she said. And Tod’s accessories? “Well, they’re not that old.”

For the kids (or kids at heart) who do want Tod’s in the stocking, creative director Derek Lam had a suggestion. “I think everybody can appreciate a driving loafer,” he said. “It’s obviously not only for driving—it crosses all generations. It’s a must-have shoe. And it’s a luxurious item that won’t break the bank.”
