Boykin Curry and Celerie Kemble; Gayle King; Padma Lakshmi.

Boykin Curry and Celerie Kemble
Boykin Curry and Celerie Kemble. A very popular young couple on the social scene these days. Someone asked me if those were their real names? Who would make them up? Celerie is an interior decorator or furniture designer, as she has lines of fabric and furniture coming out this fall, and is in business with her mother.

Boykin is a money manager in midtown, mostly of endowments, schools, and families, including Chapin, St Andrews, the Daily News, National Geographic, and the Art Institute of Chicago, who’s always amused that the woman in his life is named after a vegetable. Together they are the proud possessors of a new Jack Russell.

Gayle King
Gayle King. Long time close personal friend and adviser of Oprah, director of O Magazine; among other things, Ms. King serves as liaison for Oprah’s media interests in New York. She is a very popular member of the media and social set, famous for her warm and welcoming personality; an excellent ambassador for her friend. Resides in Greenwich where she has a young family, and commutes daily.

Padma Lakshmi. Glamorous wife of Salman Rushdie.
