The faboo world of New York high society revealed!

The faboo world of New York high society revealed! reviews the "cheapie centerpieces" at the Lord of the Rings DVD party, the hot-pink truffles at Ivana's disco bash and the stilletto-shaped Manolo Blahnik cookies at the 'Sex and the City' premiere. NFL ice sculptures, Scrabble serving trays and bone-shaped doggie breath mints in silver bowls are among the delights. Those hand-tied veggie crepe bundles at the VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards sure do look de-lish. Be sure to check the cocktail menu at the venture capitalists' "Back to Reality" bash - held at McDonalds - and the "funky registration area" at last January's World Economic Forum.

Glad I missed the body-painted topless dancers at that Sotheby's auction and the nude table snacks and floral arrangements with KY Jelly and chains at the Museum of Sex opening [nsfw].

And I'm sorry, but one-color themes are always tacky:
Virgin's All-Red Brandathon
Self's Pink Party in the Park
Donna Karan's All-Black Scent Launch

Oh, and food bloggers take note: Bizbash's new venue guide says that a New York branch of the French Laundry (blogged wonderfully by Meg Hourihan) is scheduled to open by the end of 2003.

I'm guessing that they never have hungry people at those events.. they eat before they go out I suppose

Let's see.... a ClearChannel banner, exposed scripting code in my Mozilla browser, and a Orwellian Lillian Vernon flashpiece telling me to IMPRESS / REWARD / MOTIVATE ? The perfect Halloween link!!!!

High society isn't always pretty, you know.

But pretty much society is always high.
