|Last Saturday night Martha Stewart hosted a cocktail (and hors d’oeuvres) to celebrate Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Holden’s September issue of Martha Stewart Living. The invitation read featuring Kevin Sharkey’s “Home at Last” story.
Mr. Sharkey is the decorating editorial director of MSL. The apartment, in the far West Village, has views and views and light like nobody’s business. We should all live so long. It also has 2500 square feet and he’s lived there for two years. It’s also in one of those Richard Meier towers overlooking the Hudson. As I said, we should all live so long.
|The fashion note at the sunset soiree was the waitstaff who all looked like Tom Ford dresses Cary Grant.
Some of the fashionable guests, on the other hand, looked like their mothers mighta said: “you leavin’ the house dressed like that?” “Farmin’, that’s the fashion (of our great celebrities of today)”, as Cole Porter once wrote. Although he was kidding.
|Meanwhile Martha was there. And her daughter Alexis; and Colin Cowie, Scott Currie, David Kleinberg, Pamela Fiori, Ralph Rucci, Lorenzo Martone, Vanessa von Bismarck, Brad Ford, Beth DeWoody, Elie Tahari, Laura and Harry Slatkin, Tom Browne, Matt Tyrnauer, Simon Watson, Diana Picasso, Todd Eberle, Tory Burch, Linda Fargo, James Reginato, David Easton, Naeem and Ranjana Khan, Alexa Hampton, Reed Krakoff, David Chang, Wendy Goodman. And dozens more just like ‘em. And they were all saying to each other: “I wanna place like this. Twenty-five hundred square feet.” Who needs to leave the house; you could get lost just staying home. In your very own barnyard.|
|Bergdorf Goodman's Fashion Night Out was a great party scene.|
|Just ask Monique Lhuillier, Tabitha Simmons, Tinsley Mortimer, and Kelly Rutherford for starters.|
|The Calvin Klein Collection's Fashion Night Out was also a party scene. In fact Madison Avenue, Chelsea, Fifth Avenue, were all party scenes on Fashion Night Out. The city was electric.|
|The weather was great and the crowds were moving all over town. The streets were packed and so were the stores and party venues. It was a combination of the ballyhoo and the excitement around the upcoming Fashion Week.|
|The Charlotte Ronson After Party last Saturday at Avenue brought out all the Ronsons and the Joneses including mama Ann Dexter Jones, and DJ Sam and Annabel Dexter Jones and lotsa their lotsa friends.|
|Fashion Night Out up on Madison Avenue and 75th Street: Carolina Herrera hosted the party at CH Carolina Herrera. Anna Wintour was there, all smiles. Carolina, of course, was there looking her drop dead chic; and Reinaldo, and Robert Risko illustrating, and Whitney Port, camera-ready.|
