At the elegant new Ralph Lauren Store on Madison, after their screening of It Takes A Thief at MoMA, I went upstairs and a bodyguard shook my hand. And I immediately knew someone huge was in the room, because I only know the guy from LA. He is THE big honcho there. And he is often with Prince Albert of Monaco here. And I turn my head, and there is Charlene of Monaco, HSH of gorgeousness. I had forgotten that the invite said she might be there. And on the stairs later, which are seriously grand, big white marble sweep with curves, she passed me. She was wearing a silk creamy white pants suit with serious bell. She is one tall drink of Serene Highness. They had the music from the movie piped in. And it really felt like we were on a shoot for It Takes a Thief. Kyle McLachlan was in a tux and could have played Carry Grant. We talked high school reunions, as we are of a similar vintage. Get the impression he hasn’t been back to Yakama. There was much champers and sparkling water. And Ralph himself looked robust. Gayle King, Dylan McDermott, and Chris Noth also in the house. Pretty darned glam. . . Charlene is a doll, by the way, and told me that she has Princess Grace’s old recipes at the country house last time we talked. She is in town for Princess Grace foundation gala on Weds.
