On Thursday night, fresh off Obama-mania, I attended the fabulous one year anniversary dinner party of exclusive luxury shopping success the GILT Groupe, held at the über-swanky Shang located in Jason Pomeranc's Thompson Hotel LES. And it was socialite heaven! Now, I don't really like socialites -- I don't get why someone is important based on their family, because it's like hitting the DNA lottery -- but the socials there were super sweet!
Hosts Nina Garcia (Project Runway PLEASE come back), Marjorie Grubelmann and Alex Kramer honored GILT Groupe with dinner, and the designers were out in full effect, including Peter Som, Naeem Kahn, Dennis Basso and the créme de la créme, fresh off the Obama-train-of-love Isabel Toledo and her artist hubby Ruben. And I shook the hand that created the first lady's look! She is totally rock star and quite unaffected; she mentioned that she's looking forward to dressing more women of the chocolate persuasion... specifically me! Okay. That's a fib, but she did say hello and was quite nice!
Congrats to my dear friends at GILT Groupe on their one year anniversary! In case you want to send them a gift, please remember first year anniversary gifts are paper, so send money!
