As designers get settled back to reality apres-NYFW, last night was about time to celebrate ELLE DECORâ€™s 2013 fashion issue. Guests like Drew Barrymore, Kelly Rutherford, Nicole Miller, Rachel Roy, Waris Ahluwalia, Elle Decor EIC Michael Boodro, Hearst honcho Michael Clinton, Cynthia Frank and Kelly Bensimon gathered at John Demseyâ€™s well-decorated townhouse for the occasion. The setting, in which nearly every surface was decorated and there were pieces of art covering every wall, was apt for hosting an evening of cocktails and tasty bites. Three separate bars (one in the kitchen, one outdoors and one upstairs) kept guests imbibed as they breathed in the scent of the many Fornasetti candles burning, all while rubbing elbows with both the fashion and interior dÃ©cor crowd.
Hope you’ve been hitting the Equinox because you’ll need a little extra muscle to carry the September issue of InStyle, which clocks in at a whopping 716 pages. It’s the mag’s biggest issue, ever, and it’s also Drew Barrymore’s seventh cover for the mag…more than anyone else, ever. (You can take that little piece of trivia to the set of Jeopardy!)
