Going like 60

Peggy Siegal celebrated her 60th birthday on Tuesday night with a dinner party with 167 guests at the Plaza Athenee. Among the highlights was an amazing cake that looked like a handbag on top of a suitcase on top of books, magazines, shoes, whatever. Peggy always on the Go. The party was called for eight. When I arrived at eight thirty guests were filling the hotel’s lobby as well as the barrooms. Patrick McMullan was there in his element. Patrick is coming out with a new book of photographs called “Glamour Girls.” There were more than a couple of them at Peggy’s party.

The birthday cake
Every guest was given a booklet with the entire guestlist in it as well as the table number for each guest. The booklet had a picture of little Peggy back in Englewood Cliffs when she was 3 or 4. You can see she was already planning her rolodex.

The booklet also contained a List of her medical secrets since she looks so good for 60.
