Julie Gilhart hosted a party last week at the Smile to celebrate the spring collection from Araks, whose new lookbook she helped create. Although she wouldn't disclose anything about what she's planning to do post-Barneys, it's good to see that she's holding it down and hasn't fled to some remote area of the Caribbean until people stop gossiping about her replacement.
