Hunt Slonem’s new studio in Hell’s Kitchen features orchids, hundreds of framed bunnies and is really and truly a playground of a true genius! On a table that went on forever, dinner began with a salad… courtesy of Justin Timberlake! Actually, courtesy of his Southern Hospitality restaurant. Things then progressed to a tasting plate from Barbounia and ended with sweets by Magnolia.

Highlights of the evening included:

Being scolded by Count Rufus Albemarle for taking his photo and as a result missing a true "New York moment": Tara Subkoff, Genevieve Jones and Derek Blasberg grooving in a corner…

Georgous Jessica Joffe revealing how to keep the seams straight on lace tights…

Capturing a photo of Diandra Douglas spontaneously kissing Hunt’s cheek…

And Jeffrey Slonim, impeccably attractive in a red-striped seersucker suit that got me excited for the upcoming summer months!
