Socialites Shmocialites

Dylan Lauren
“I never got the whole socialite thing,” Dylan Lauren tells the Wall Street Journal’s Wealth Report today, which explores the plight of those exceptional New York rich ladies who work because they want to, not because they have to. “I mean, what do they do?” the daughter of Ralph, whose photograph appears 377 times on PatrickMcMullan.com, continued. “Sit around and have lunch? Wear dainty clothes and go to balls? I’d go nuts.” Dylan, after all, is a businesswoman. She runs a very important candy store, the success of which has nothing to do with where she came from or who she is. “Maybe it’s just my personality. But being a socialite has no appeal,” she said. I mean right? If only all the young heiresses in the city were like Dylan, and arose at sunrise to till the earth. Oh wait. They do!

1. The new, tailored, polished Marc by Marc Jacobs — specifically a short, strapless navy-blue dress. 2. Bruce was completely refined and chic. We loved the evening looks of black trousers and exquisitely detailed and beaded camisole tops.

Socialites and Starlets Face Off in a Coast-to-Coast Battle Royale!

20070308fug_sm.jpg
New York socialites and Hollywood starlets have traditionally inhabited two separate celebrity worlds. Never mind the continent between them; they also do different things. Society girls bring attention to disfiguring diseases by wearing designer dresses to galas, while their Hollywood counterparts spend evenings talking their way into free drinks at the latest hot bars, usually not wearing any underwear. And, for years, each group has seemed content to remain within its own orbit. Until now. The Great New York Socialite Invasion of 2007 hit Los Angeles when Tinsley Mortimer and Fabiola Beracasa descended for some Oscar post-parties. It was the first sign of cross-pollination between the two PR-grubbing groups, and we fear it will not go smoothly. Will the L.A. girls tolerate the New Yorkers moving in on their turf? Will the East Coasters give the locals the respect they demand? A battle royale could be in the works. Here's who we see poised for face-offs — and who we predict will be left standing at the end, triumphantly clutching a bloodied hair extension.

Fashion Week Is All Fugged Up

Best of Fashion Week
We were such innocents a mere eight days ago. Times were much simpler then; we had hope in our hearts and an unfailing optimism that our job covering celebrities in Fashion Week's front rows would be like shooting fish in a barrel, minus the ricochet. Even though not as many famous faces showed up as we'd have liked, we managed to come out the other end a very happy, sated pair. After all, we love clothes, Champagne, and sandwiches, and we got a lot of all three this week. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of our second stint covering the celebrity turnout at Bryant Park — and, yes, of the 37 shows we saw, we did like a lot of the clothes.

Ten Things on Thursday

  • 1. Vera Wang, where to begin? We can't pick one thing, or two things, or three or four. We loved it all, from the adorned flat boots to the cashmere kerchiefs and absolutely everything in between. A breathtaking show inspired by early 20th-century Russia. Take a look for yourself. Loved not only the pieces, but the styling, too. It was the only standing ovation, thus far, of the week, and it was totally deserved.
  • 2. The ever-flamboyant Zac Posen's more restrained opening passage.
  • 3. Lyn Devon, a newcomer, showed lovely kimono jackets with dramatically draped backs.
