Condé Nast’s union reaches agreement before the Met Gala 

The Condé Nast Union has reached an agreement with its parent company ahead of tonight’s Met Gala. The publishing house has begun a tentative initial contract with union workers at its various publications, which include Vogue, GQ, Teen Vogue, and more, according to The New York Times. The deal’s terms include $3.3 million in overall company wage increases, as well as a $61,500 initial starting salary, two additional weeks of family leave, greater bereavement leave, and ending its current “two-tier permanence system.” News broke on the union’s social media early this morning ahead of the Gala, where its members threatened to form a picket line that attending celebrities would have to cross to enter the event.

Chloe Fineman brings Anna Wintour to Saturday Night Live

Anna, is that you? Chloe Fineman put her impression skills to the test on Saturday Night Live as Met Gala co-chair and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. In a new sketch, Fineman waxes on miniature statement pins as stars including host Dua Lipa walk the Gala’s red carpet. While draped in Wintour’s signature sunglasses, bob, and layered necklaces, Fineman also shared a behind-the-scenes clip of herself on the steps—featuring “Anna” directing photographers and sharing the pronunciation of Gala sponsor “Loewe.” As for Fineman appearing on tonight’s carpet? We’ll have to wait and see.

A Kentucky Derby party at T-Squared Social Club

A new tradition began on Saturday.  T-Squared Social Club welcomed Stacey Bendet, Christopher Anand, Scott Buccheit and Naeem Delbridge for their very first Kentucky Derby viewing party . The event doubled as a birthday party for philanthropist and socialite Gillian Hearst. The chic crowd included Frederick Anderson, Councilman Erik Bottcher, Summer House’s Bria Fleming and Jordan Emmanuel,  Timo Weiland, David Kirsch, HGTV’s Shane Duffy, Josh Beckerman,  Richie Romero, Kelly Brady, Alex and Keytt Lundqvist, Consuelo Vanderbilt, Tracy Yorks, Gustaf Demarchelier, Leckie Roberts, Byrdie Bell, Elizabeth Kurpis,  Mariah Strongin, Lexi Woods, Julia McGuire, DJ Niks and Victoria Britto.

Guests posed for photos in front of an Alice + Olivia flower wall and enjoyed traditional mint juleps in three variations, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Don Julio tequila and Angel’s Envy bourbon, while others enjoyed champagne from Veuve Clicquot, Peroni beer and Hennessy cocktails.  Party goers got into the sporting spirit with bowling, throwing darts and VR pens at the spot co-owned by Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake.

The race turned out to be one of the closest ever, and literally came down to the wire, ultimately crowning Mystik Dan.
