New Holiday Collaboration: DVF and DJ Harley Viera-Newton

We are loving this new video celebrating the holiday collaboration between Diane Von Furstenburg and DJ Harley Viera-Newton. It's inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany's, and features Harley's muse and little kitty, Marmite. (I'm thinking Harley never calls her kitty "poor slob" though. What about you?)

Watch the video 'til the end. Tell me if you've ever seen anything cuter than those shoes! HG is for Holly Golightly and Harley Golightly. But, I'm pretending it's for Hooghkirk Gigi!
