HAPPY HANUKKAH: This afternoon, Elie Tahari is scheduled to join Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Ron Prosor and city comptroller John Liu to light the world’s largest Hanukkah menorah located on Fifth Avenue by The Plaza hotel. “I am beyond honored to be lighting the menorah in the Grand Army Plaza,” Tahari said, who will ride in a cherry picker to light the 32-foot-tall structure. “The holiday season has always been close to my heart, celebrating Hanukkah with my family and friends brings me so much joy.”

Tahari’s festive spirit unfortunately didn’t extend to the Village of East Hampton. It asked him to remove his window displays with a summons that florescent lighting violates the town’s ordinance. Tahari plans to replace the display with a vintage bust form, which, after Dec. 27, will feature the winning design of season two of “Project Runway All Stars.” Tahari is a guest judge on an episode.
