Fashionistas Take It In Stride

ASHION WEEK in New York is really 10 days of torture –unless, of course, you're a true fashionista and can thrill at the diversity, color and dynamism of seeing some of the most unique styles from international designers.

My first show was Parisian designer Lloyd Klein. He showed brilliant colors, luxurious fabrics and ultra feminine designs.  Front row were the super-glam Hilton sisters, while Paris made a trip down the catwalk.

In from school Ivanka Trump, as well as Allison Weiss from Miami, and Moira Forbes of the publishing Forbes, were all front row.  International hair stylist Julien Farel created the hair magic, supermodel Carol Alt was one of the backstage well wishers, and all in all, even in the middle of a monstrous snowstorm, it was a great start to Fashion Week.

Celebrating Nile Rodgers

HIS was one of the coldest nights of the year. There we were freezing at the stage door waiting for some of the music industry's biggest stars and celebrities. My assigned VIP, Patti LaBelle, came 90 minutes after her assigned time.

Swathed in Dennis Basso sable, glittering diamonds and the cutest evening purse designed by none other than Patti herself, Patti is a star always worth waiting for.  Her talent, so generously shared, is HUGE.

The evening celebrated the 25th anniversary of Nile Rodgers and his famous band Chic.

Nile who has written, orchestrated and produced music for many of the world's greatest stars, created the fundraiser for his We Are Family Foundation, and was honoring the divine Miss Diana Ross and Court TV's Henry Schleiff.

Sadly Miss Ross was a no-show. Given her current health woes, everyone understood and no one complained because all the acts were supreme!  The Village People (past and present), Ashford and Simpson, LaBelle, Freddy Jackson and a dozen other acts took the stage at the China Club and wowed the audience who stood and clapped and cheered till the wee hours of the morning.

A Jazzy Tribute

EW YORK has gone to the dogs, or so it seemed at the recent book launch for Cindy Adams's salute to her 8-pound furball, Yorkshire terrier Jazzy.  The Gift of Jazzy is renowned columnist Adams’ tribute to the comfort and joy brought to her life after the death of her longtime husband, world famous comedian Joey Adams.

Cindy is one of the most beloved, and feared, writers in New York.  Known for her sharp wit and pen, Adams is a doting and dotty mother on the topic of Jazzy. The book is earning raves, and is already on the New York Times best seller list.

Joining the canine lovers group to celebrate its publication and the opening of Macy's Jazzy Park Avenue Dog Salon were some of New York's biggest celebrities.

Henry Kissinger, Mary Tyler Moore, Liza Minnelli and husband David Gest and two dogs in tow, renowned fashion designer Oleg Cassini, and new English designer Julius Lumsden, Hollywood glamour queen Arlene Dahl, soap opera diva Susan Lucci and more.

Read the book. It is about love and loss, grief and joy, and a very special lady (and her beloved dog) in New York.

Smile When You Call Him

hey call him Dr. Larry Rosenthal “Dr. Smile.” Not only does he perform magic on some of the most famous smiles in the world, but recently New York University dedicated its dental school in his honor – the Dr. Larry Rosenthal Aesthetic School of Dentistry.

A glamorous party you ask – well, this doctor has created the smiles for many of the world's most beautiful models and actors, business giants and victims of dreadful traumas.

Everyone loves him and many came to honor him.  Socialite Sale Johnson, Senator Jon Corzine (taking time out of Washington), sports legends and heroes Rod Gilbert and Dave DeBusschere, and hundreds of other "smiling" faces.

Catherine Saxton has been a part of the New York social and celebrity scene for
the past 25 years. She has worked with Presidents, Kings and Princes,
plus celebrities including Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly,
Donald & Ivana Trump, Madonna, and on, and on.
