My girls’ night out with Lucy Sykes Rellie.

Lucy and I were invited by the one and only Peggy Siegal, to the screening of the French film, The Intouchables, staring Francois Cluzet and breakout star Omar Sy. The film is already a box office phenomenon in France, where it is the second highest-grossing film of all time in the country. The movie is about an unlikely friendship between an aristocratic quadriplegic who hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker after he suffers a paragliding accident. The movie screening was at MoMA, where we sat right behind Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti. It was a great night that included Harvey Weinstein, Alexa Chung, Derek Blasberg, Jennifer Missoni, Erica Reid, and Tamara Mellon with an after party at chic La Petit Maison on 54th Street.

Book Launch of "The Ivy League", by Daniel Cappello, Hosted by Candace and Rick Beinecke.

My new friend, Quest Magazine’s Daniel Cappello, has written “The Ivy League”, published by Assouline. Through photos and text, the book defines the unique spirit of the 8 universities and what sets them apart, covering everything from famous political and celebrity graduates, to political stances and athletic rivalries, architectural styles, and popular fashion. The party was thrown at the Fifth Avenue estate of Candace and Rick Beinecke, who are like second parents to Daniel.

In attendance were: Allison and Jay Aston, Anne Vincent, Kelly Rutherford, Robert Burke, Mimi Crume Sterling, Martine Assouline, Bill Cunningham, and Christian Leone.

Elie Saab Private Dinner

Elie Saab was in town and hosted a private dinner at Crown on the Upper East Side. He’s known for dressing red carpet celebrities, and the Young Hollywood set came out to support him, including Dakota Fanning, Emily Blunt, and Analeigh Tipton all looking gorgeous in his collection. Speaking of stars, this year at the Oscars Bérénice Bejo and Milla Jovovich wore his gowns. The evening was intimate and lovely, and so special because his whole family was present at the dinner!

In attendance were: Eric Wilson, Bob Colacello, Allison and Jay Aston, Jeff Kim, Samantha Boardman Rosen, Natalie Leeds Leventhal, Kate Lanphear, Kate Dimmock, Amanda Ross, Jennifer Creel, and SunHee Grinnell.
