A Rich Party Is Legendary

IGHT times Grammy-nominated John Legend was hosted to a private party in the plushest triplex Manhattan apartment – music maker/hostess Denise Rich's famed Fifth Avenue penthouse.

Everyone was there – Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Janice Combs, Star Jones – all the usual suspects.

Legend was so thrilled to be feted in such a magnificent apartment.  These Denise Rich soirees are the must-attends in the music world. An invitation is gold, and to be the guest of honor – well, that's pure platinum. 

If you're counting, Legend went home with three Grammys. Not bad for a first time at bat!  Then again, he's no "ordinary person."

The "New" Mrs. Trump

EAUTIFUL Vanessa Trump (Mrs. Donald J. Trump Jr.,) was one of the models at designer Anand Jon's Fashion Week runway show at the ultra exclusive Fizz nightclub on the East Side. 

Beautiful Vanessa is making her mark amongst the city's young models with very high profiles. And she's a knockout, admired for her beauty, grace and charm.  We'll be seeing so much more of her on runways across the country.

Star Gazing

OR Fashion Week in New York, with stars, celebrities, VIPs, socialites, athletes, and every wannabe in the world in residence, it’s tough to choose one party for its klieg light brilliance.

But Donatella Versace's private invitation reopening party for her Fifth Avenue store is it! 

From the two lines of paparazzi and NYers on the sideline, to the paparazzi and TV lights on the inside, to the swarms of celebrities in the store, this was the party to attend. 

Beautiful, elegant, and somewhat chilled by the cold night air, Donatella was escorted everywhere by the ever elegant Rupert Everett

Then came the stars to pay homage - Halle Berry and her delicious new love Gabriel Aubry, Kate Hudson, Oscar nominee and very, very pregnant Rachel Weisz, Cindy Crawford and hubby Randy Gerber who have lost none of their gorgeousness, a slender Harvey Weinstein, in-and-out Graydon Carter, hip hop mogul Damon Dash and beautiful designer wife Rachel Ray, on and on into the shout-filled night. 

You just had to be there, and in the camera sights/sites of the beautiful man about Manhattan, photographer Patrick McMullan, who took these luscious photos.

TAR LIGHT, star bright, star shining with all its might. Lighthouse International celebrated its 100th anniversary in star-studded ceremonies at the New York Marriott Marquis.  The world's No.1 organization helping the visually impaired, and No. 1 vision researcher, celebrated the vitality of this organization, which raised more than $1million at the gala.

Venerable TV newsman Mike Wallace wowed the crowd and former presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer brought fun and gravitas to the live auction. 

One thousand of the faithful packed the ballroom, braved the NY blizzard, and celebrated an organization started by two sisters with $400 and their dress allowance.  Another coup for women who help shape the world!
