3.1 Phillip Lim

Popped over to Soho Tuesday night for Veuve Clicquot's in-store celebration and dinner for the opening of 3.1 Phillip Lim.What a party! And what a beautiful space. Ten out of ten of the friends I ran in to, en route to the Mercer St. locale, all said the same thing, "He's so nice!" And they were right. His clothes are chic yet simple, very wearable, at times elegant, lots of textures and mixing of fabrics and best of all, affordable!

The music was off the hook, the crowd was the perfect mixture of uptown meets downtown, the bubbly was flowin' and I am officially obsessed with all the young, beautiful women that work in fashion. Having entered the magazine world south of Houston, I had not yet been exposed to this new strain of savvy, young working girls. They were like Mary Tyler Moore but tanner with highlights. All this time I've been hangin' out with bitchy fashion queens and it turns out it's all about an Uptown Girl!

Anna Wintour, Debra Messing
(who is SO fun-FYI), John Legend with girlfriend Christine Teigen, Amy Astley, Steven Kolb (who just gets better and better looking), Amanda Cutter Brooks
(Gorg!), Sally Singer (cool as shit), Hamish Bowles, Shirin von Wulffen (LOVE) with hubby Fredric Fekkai, Virginia Smith, Meredith Melling Burke, Eugene Tong, The Misshapes, Keegan Singh, Genevieve Jones (with the cutest boy EVER!), Joe Zee, Jessica Joffe, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, Damien Nunes, Derek Blasburg and many, many more.

It's easy to see why people have such love for this CFDA Award recipient and I am predicting big things for Phillip Lim the the future. 3.1 Phillip Lim! Get to know it!

BIG UP's to Erin Roberts and Team La Force and Stevens, who totally rocked it out!
