On Display at the Soirée: Maybelline / Patrick McMullan Party

Do you love me more? Are you jealous of my existence?

Last week, I hoofed it to a Maybelline / Patrick McMullan party. The party, held at the Dream Hotel downtown, celebrated the 40th anniversary of Great Lash mascara and McMullan's PMc magazine launch. Rain threatened to destroy my vaguely decently assembled hairdo, but I arrived in sparkling condition to the event where many of the people you see in fashion magazines and the social pages (and want to know) were assembled. Patrick's crowd was quite amusant. Champagne swirled! I had a fabulous time and piled on my best clothing (Jil Sander, etc.) for the occasion.

Cameron Silver, owner of Decades, and I had a little tête à tête, and he invited me to his extraordinary vintage shopping event the next day at the Lisa Perry boutique across from the Carlyle. We also chatted about his YSL couture collection...e-n-v-y...and the difference between LA and SF. He is so debonair and charming. Adore!

Also, the designer Rod Keenan showed off his sumptuous hat. I asked him for one of his $1,100 hats, but no dice! Instead, he gave me a pencil with his name on it. Maybe next time, Rod?
