Best Non-Celebrity Sighting Ever
Last night co-worker Erin and I went to a Badgley Mischka party over at the Saint Regis Hotel. It was grand, full of champagne and models, if you like that sort of thing. Both Badgley and Mischka were there, but we were too busy perched on the sofa and eating little chocolcates too make small talk.
As we came in we sussed the place out. It was a great suite (The Presidentail Suite at that) and everyone was far too fabulous for their own good.
Then a gal came around the corner. She looked familiar, but I couldn't exactly place her.
Then I realize it was the girl from MTV's True Life: I Have a Friend With Benefits. She was the girl who moved to New York City and was hooking up with this shmoe of a guy who was clearly just using her for sex. She got a attached and went crazy and started crying over him. And MTV caught it all on film. I think her name was Rachel or Jen or something Murray Hill-esque like that. Anyway, she was there, although now she's some sort of unnaturally highlighted blonde.
At the end of the event, the swag was quality. A coffee table book of Elle photographer Gilles Bensimon's photos, a Badgley Mischka picture frame and the latest issue of Elle.
Good times, Good times.
