 It was about 30 degrees outside and there was snow on the ground, but that didn’t keep anyone from having a fantastic time.

New York Fashion Week is just winding down and what a week it’s been! Charlotte Ronson’s Fall 2013 presentation was so chic – there are so many amazing pieces I can’t wait to buy. Samantha Ronson provided the music, of course. Mickey Boardman, Rachel Zoe, Dani Stahll, Michael Warren, Topper Mortimer, Karen Larain and Carlos Lopez were all there and seemed quite taken with the collection as well.

I was also completely blown away by Diane von Furstenberg’s show. I loved the glam rock theme! So many A-listers came out for the event, including Anna Wintour, Diane Sawyer, Rodger Berman, Zani Gugelmann, Katharine McPhee, Nicky Hilton, Linda Fargo, Barry Diller, Carlos Souza and Carine Roitfeld. After the show, I headed off to a party hosted by The Daily Front Row at the Stone Rose Lounge. It was about 30 degrees outside and there was snow on the ground, but that didn’t keep anyone from having a fantastic time.

After a busy few days, it was such a treat to visit Dream Dry, Rachel Zoe’s new blowout salon for an afternoon of pampering with my friends Inga Rubenstein and Nicole Hanley Mellon. Feeling completely refreshed, I went to Dennis Basso’s 30th anniversary show. So many fabulous women, including Julie Macklowe, Julie Macklowe, Amy Phelan, Caren Zucker, Lizzie Grubman, Helen Schifter and Nicole Miller came out for the event.

As much as I enjoy watching designer fashion shows, I had such an amazing time attending the performance of the children’s ballet, “Bark! In the Park.” The fabulous show was written by my friend, Karen LeFrak, and choreographed by Chase Brock. The costumes were darling! After the performance, we enjoyed a lovely dinner, followed by face painting and balloon making. The kids loved it! Lauren Cooperman and my nieces Stella and Marlee were there, along with Jill Kargman, Nicole Hanley Mellon, Carolina de Neufville, Tara Speigel, Alison Brettschneider, Marshall Heyman, Richard Lefrak, Peter Davis and Christina Scott. I’m so sad that Fashion Week is coming to a close, but I can’t wait to do it all again next season.
