Dori’s World

My trip to Europe was a whirlwind! I had such a wonderful couple of weeks and was able to catch up with a lot of old friends.

We flew direct to Nice, where we then took a helicopter ride to get to St. Tropez. I was a little jet-lagged, but more so excited to let the week of festivities (including my birthday celebration) begin!

The night before my birthday, I celebrated at Simon and Joyce Reuben’s villa in St. Tropez with their daughter Lisa Reuben, who is my good friend. We then headed to Le Cave du Roi at midnight to ring in my official birthday. My friends Paris and Nicky Hilton were there to join me along with Low Taek Jho, and we danced to the music of the famous DJ Jackie. Joyeux Anniversaire à moi!

I celebrated my actual birthday the next day at sea. My friend Inga Rubenstein threw myself and her husband, Keith, our annual joint birthday party on Michael Tabor’s boat, Hurricane Run. Rebecca Lester, Natalie Von Bismarck, Jonathan Lourie, Jason Pomeranc, Rena Sindi, Nicolas Berguen, Goga Ashkenazi, Tamara Beckwith, Dino Lalvani, Cynthia and Henry Gabay, Ulla Parker, Nick Candy, Hofit Golan, and Maria Buccelatti were just a few of my friends who came to celebrate. That night we all headed to the annual Flower Power party.

The next few nights were jam-packed with various annual house parties from Thomas Leclerc’s (where I ran into Richard LeFrak and Sonny Marlboro), to Cynthia and Claude Ott’s and Sabrina Giuliani’s (amazing party with crazy dancers!). Lastly, I attended Denise Rich’s annual party aboard her yacht, M.Y. Lady Joy and it was a blast! Denise was so nice and had her captain sail over on their tender a lovely bracelet for me for my birthday gift.
