42 TOASTING TWO DECADES D J Lucy Wrubel moved her turntable and Showtech productions equipment inside. Scot Redman — founder of MotusRed's stop- action video photo-booth — packed up his camera contraption and staged an impromptu photo backdrop of framed PaperCity covers and giant numeral-20 cutouts. The Mansion staff quickly prepped the bar, while dapper waiters passed flutes of Rosegold Rose and Deep Ellum Vodka cocktails. Even the Mansion's new chef, Sebastien Archambault, accommodated the weather, employing his culinary team to whip up quick gourmet bites in a pinch. Meanwhile, a few busy hands from NorthPark Center, along with Roberto Cavalli's store manager Natalie Lo, were in a Mansion suite, putting the final styling touches on four gorgeous models all wearing the latest from Cavalli's fall collection. Throughout the evening, the models made their turn about the room, posing for photos and chatting up guests — no doubt, they were the most fashionable ones in attendance. Clearly, no amount of rain could dampen the spirits of the party set. Within minutes of the party's start, there was a valet line wrapped around the block — a glamorous gridlock, as we like to call it. As guests packed in, several pulled us aside to tell us how the entire soirée felt a bit like a high-school reunion — the kind you actually want to attend. Old friends became reacquainted, and new relationships ignited. It was the kind of party where it felt like you saw everyone and no one, as the ballroom was packed to the max. Glasses clinked. Air kisses flew. It was a true testament to the idea that all you need for a memorable party is good friends, strong drinks, and a superb soundtrack (thank you, Ms. Lucy). Perhaps the best part about moving the party inside was this: As the event neared its end, most partygoers took advantage of the easy access and sauntered into the Mansion Bar for more cocktails — perhaps a plate of truffle fries — and an evening that lasted well past midnight. We do love a good silver lining.
