Mmm. Blog Bar. Sounds unhealthy and delicious.

    Padma and Ivana Won’t Fugging SpeakIvana Trump must not be a Top Chef fan. Appearing this morning at Vera Wang (and sans her burnished male escort from yesterday), Ivana sat hip-to-hip with Padma Lakshmi in the front row — yet they never seemed to speak or exchange a glance. Shouldn’t they be gabbing about how tall C.J. is or whether somebody could please place a ban on the contestants making tuna tartare?

    Fabiola Beracasa Gets Us Into the Gramercy Park Hotel’s Roof Club How do you get to the Roof Club and Landscaped Garden of the Gramercy Park Hotel? Just take the elevator. Thing is, you’re going to need a private membership card to key it — and that’s why we suggest you set aside any ambition of seeing the place’s Damien Hirst paintings and amazing view in person and simply let Fabiola Beracasa give you the video tour. Chances are, even if you have $545 for a room or the wherewithal to gain admittance, you’re not going to have a drinking companion as lovely as Fab.

    Adrian Grenier Learned Nothing From Meryl Streep In a world already filled with unaffordable, covetous objects, it makes perfect sense that Mercedes-Benz sponsors Fashion Week. As last night’s kickoff party at the Box — the latest in Serge Becker’s Chrystie Street nightlife empire — showed, we can expect many an outsize sports car to be blocking our sidewalks and crushing our self-esteem these next seven days.
