HEY’RE back in town and in fine feather and fettle. And they headed over to La Goulue for Graff Jewelry president Henri Barguirdjian’s chic little lunch for Jamee Gregory, Leslie Jones and their hardworking committee for the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's 15th Anniversary Preview Party Committee for the International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show.
Among them were the society’s new president Coco Kopelman, the event’s Junior Chair Hilary Dick, Ivana Trump, Shoshanna Lowenstein Gruss, Jessie Araskog, Muffie Potter Aston, Joanne de Guardiola, Karen LeFrak, Jamie Niven, Pamela Fiori, Helen Schifter, R. Couri Hay, Daisy Soros, Allison Stern, Felicia Taylor, Courtney Arnot, Debbie Bancroft, Susan Burke, Jan Calloway, Webb Egerton-Warburton, Hilary Geary, Sallie Giordano, Thomas Guinzburg, Rachel Hovnanian, Karen May, Ashley McDermott, Grace Meigher, Christine Cachot Williams, Nicole Micco, Barbara McLaughlin and Alexandra Lind Rose.
A divine lunch featuring a delicious lobster salad was served with Champagne Veuve Clicquot. Leann Garris and Rebecca Meyer modeled gorgeous Graff jewelry featuring their famous yellow diamonds.
Several guests crossed Madison Avenue to shop privately in their elegant salon. Others went off to address invitations to the Preview Party this month at the Park Avenue Armory, sponsored by Graff and Saks Fifth Avenue.
