    Duck Man, RFK Jr., Boldfacers Go Green at TheoryWhen we heard there’d be a “bazaar” to celebrate the green lifestyle at the new Theory store on Gansevoort Street, we hoped to find a carnival-esque atmosphere. Pin the Tail on the Kyoto Treaty. Bobbing for litter. Al Gore in a dunk tank. We were disappointed. Though the vegan, soy-and-dairy-free ice cream from Pure Food and Wine was divine, the party the other night felt, well, earthly – packed, as most parties are, with a bunch of people standing around and drinking. And listening. There’s no surer way to kill a buzz than a long and impassioned lecture from Robert Kennedy Jr. linking our failure to combat global warming to a failure in national security.

    Still Taking Fashion Cues From the KennedysNicole Miller celebrated her 25th anniversary as a designer last night by throwing a dinner at Chinatown Brasserie for friends including Zac Posen, Shalom Harlow, Jane Krakowski, and her pal Robert F. Kennedy Jr. — and to mark the milestone she donated $25,000 to Kennedy’s Riverkeeper environmental group. But, as he told us, it was hardly her first gift to him. “Nicole noticed a long time ago, probably fifteen years ago, that I like to wear thin ties,” he said. “And so she made a bunch for me, these little thin ties.” He held out the slender navy one, dotted with tiny parrots, around his neck. “I’m very happy to see that they’re finally coming into style and she’s actually selling them in her stores,” he added. Actually, you can’t find the exact ties she made for Kennedy, which Miller said are one-of-a-kinds, but others like them. “I think all men should wear skinny ties,” she said. “I think it makes you much cooler than, I don’t know, anyone who wears fat ties.” —Amy Odell
