Media Christmas: Beware of Andre Leon Talley, Plus Tonight's Parties

• A few additions to the Big List, including Rodale tonight at Django. (Will Dave Zinczenko permit beer? So many carbs!) Full, updated list is after the jump.

• A delicious report from last night's Marc Jacobs party, which, while not technically Media Christmas, certainly featured a jolly, fat Media Santa Claus:

Was at the outrageous Marc Jacobs Holiday Hoedown last night. It was tough to tear my eyes away from the go-go cowboys in assless chaps, until the enormous Andr Leon Talley walked by. He was wearing what looked like a 10-foot-long wildebeest skin around his neck and had a bag over his shoulder in a matching pelt; it looked like a papoose. Between his height, the volumnious skins, and the huge bag, he must have taken up like 500 cubic feet. He was ushering Naomi Campbell (looking sort of lame in Pocahontas pigtails and headband) back and forth around the large space. They must have been looking for the VIP room but there wasn't one apparently (ha! ha!) since I later saw La Campbell sitting on a bale of hay, shoveling down creamed spinach from the buffet.

• And tonight's lineup:

The Daily Show, Movida
Gourmet (sales), The Hotel on Rivington
HBO, Marriott Marquis
Rodale, Django

Maybe someone can snag a pic of Jon Stewart in a Santa suit? We've still got that onion tart, you know.
