What an insantely lavish night. Tiffany took over the skating rink in Rockefeller Center–tented it–and did full deco setting inside for 400 top customers in world. And Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Williams, Kate Hudson, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker attended in bigtime Blue Book bling Had twenties dancers, singer who played trumpet, women on swings (dressed like Mae West). Lobster, filet, chocolate, macaroons, towers of Moet, and all in the biggest, most lavish Deco environs. They built the furniture for the evening (full on Deco). Deco rug, 50 foot curtains all the way around the skating rink. Beyond grand. Even the top NY security guys said they had never ever seen anything like it. It was like stepping into the 20s. And populated like a small family wedding in a giant tent. Amy Fine Collins and I were kind of just floored. And you didn’t know any of these people, but they buy more jewelry than anyone else on earth, and had flown in from all corners of the globe. I sat with really great Russian women who told me about antique shopping in India and what wonderful old Brit furniture can be found. Honestly, just the most most most elegantly put together fete I’ve ever seen. Crazy beautiful. And all the glamor gals were being sooooo nice. .. . just charmed us (scribes) beyond words SJP, Gywneth (who looked prettier than any model), Kate Hudson remembered talking to me from the night before and it was like we were old friends. We were all just WOWED!!!!!! All twenties music. Old school big 20s champagne glasses. Baz Lerman and his wife, director and costume designer for Gatsby, were also so much fun (they used Tiffany in the film exclusively–some vintage some recreated. He said Fitzgerald and Zelda had been customers and that Tom Buchanan would totally have shopped Tiffany. Also heard that Tiffany Ad in Times we’re all so used to has been running for 100 years!); and Baz claimed that I was well dressed which made my year (vintage Adolfo tux, thank you. . . ). Megan Hilty from Smash sang Diamonds are a Girls best friend. . . .natch.
For her appearance at William Sonoma in Beverly Hills on Friday to promote her book, “It’s All Good,” Gwyneth Paltrow wore an A.L.C. checkerboard top, and some seriously short shorts. Have to have really great legs to wear those hot pants, and she definitely does. I am the king of saying, “It’s All Good,” by the way. I picked it up from P. Diddy when I was writing his marathon diaries for the NY Post. But his mom later told me it was old school. Perhaps she picked it up from her buddy Jay-Z. Does she look fit or what? She must really eat healthy. . . see “It’s All Good.” And the look was a little more formal in NYC at William Sonoma on 9th, below, See red suede pump by Gianvito Rossi, below, left.
