SPEN was hotter than ever this holiday season with hardly a trace of a recession. Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith were there with three kids along with Melanie’s twice-ex, Don Johnson, his wife Kelley and their baby Grace.
Jack Nicholson, George Lucas, Christian Slater, Ivana Trump, Lynda Carter, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Robert Wagner and Jill St. John, Nicky and Paris Hilton, Paula Zahn and Kevin Costner were all there with their families.
Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel rekindled their romance at the posh French restaurant, Renaissance. Monica Lewinsky, R. Couri Hay, skiing ace Paul Fagan, Dallas rugby star Tyler Trovillion, Suzanne Murphy, Anna Malova aka Miss Russia, and Ben Affleck looked around for new ones.
The best party was given by Prada’s Katherine Ross to open their new store on South Galena Street, followed by a dinner at the Harley Baldwin’s Caribou Club.
The Prada store is as sensational, in a Rocky Mountain way, as the one that just opened in SoHo in Manhattan. It already is a gathering place for stars such as Dustin Hoffman and Milla Jovovich, who was always with her mother and her little white dog, Madness.
Anna Malova, Tyler Trovillion,
It feels more like a grand chalet than a business, four stories of burnished wood with fireplaces on every floor.
On New Year’s Eve the party to be at was the one given by Denise Rich and her daughter Daniella at their sprawling ranch, with cases of Veuve Clicquot and mounds of caviar.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith spent the night more privately as they were celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary.
Also in privacy were Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson, celebrating their first.
I wonder what they feel about the stories circulating in the London music scene these days saying that his band, the Black Crowes, are finished because Chris is spending too much time with his new wife. I hope it isn’t true, but you can’t entirely blame him.
