First Republic Bank and Emanuel Ungaro sponsored "Celebrate the Neighborhood," an evening for the Associates Committee of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House.

Cocktails were served at the Ungaro boutique where several of the chairs were wearing, what else but, Ungaro creations. The crowd of 260 (yes we counted every single one of 'em) strolled over to a private club (you'll just have to guess) for dinner and dancing.
The evening was a big success raising over $90,000 for Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, the oldest and largest social and educational services organization on the UES.

They held a party for international fashion designer Roberto Cavalli at a private house in Los Angeles in Holmby Hills to introduce people to his latest creation: vodka. Roberto Cavalli Vodka.

It was a celebrity launch party and guests included: Alana Stewart, Amaury Nolasco, Anne Heche, Anthony Kiedis, Ashton Homes, Bijou Phillips, Brandon Davis, Casey Johnson, Chris Masterson, Cindy Crawford, Cisco Adler, Cuba Gooding Jr., Damon Dash, Danny Masterson, Emile Hirsch, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Harry Hamlin, Jason Lewis, Kathy and Rick Hilton, Kylie Bax, Lane Garrison, Laura Prepon, Lindsay Lohan, Lisa Rinna, Michael Solis, Mischa Barton, Nadine Velazquez, Nancy Davis, Natasha Henstridge, Nicky Hilton, Nicole Murphy, Olivia Wilde, Rande Gerber, Roberto Cavalli, Rockmond Dunbar, Roger Moore, Rosario Dawson, Sean Stewart, Shiri Appleby, Tracey Edmonds, Vincent Gallo and Zeta Graff.
The tone was set for a fabulous evening when the sleek invitations went out with an embossed Cavalli bottle hidden in a faux lizard envelope created by stationer Allie Munroe.

Born in Florence in 1940, Roberto Cavalli began his fashion career in the 1970’s. Experimenting with art in fashion has always been Mr. Cavalli’s passion. Hand-painting, patchwork and his use of leather have always been staples throughout his collections. His ever-present provocative themes and sexy silhouettes are mixed with luxurious embellishments. Today, he has quite the roster of celebrity devotees including Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce Knowles, Sharon Stone, Diane Kruger, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, Bono, and Steven Tyler.

They call the Chambers Hotel on West 56th, off Fifth Avenue “a seamless fusion of uptown luxury and downtown cool.” And it is. Three weeks ago one of its owners, Richard Born, presided over the unveiling of the hotel’s new, contemporary Chinese art installation (which was part of Mr. Born’s private collection).

The Chambers showcases more than 500 pieces of original artwork with pieces by such artists as John Waters, De-Ho Suh, and Bob and Roberta Smith. Part of the permanent collection of contemporary art lines the walls of each of the guest accommodations and public spaces. Full-scale hallway installations are on each floor.
