34 SUSHI, SAKE, AND SWANS SHELBY HODGE WINGS IN. PHOTOGRAPHY EMILE C. BROWNE, DAVE ROSSMAN. T he fashionable crowd that flocked into Nobu fully expected a sublime feast from The Galleria's heralded Japanese restaurant. But they found themselves swooning over jewels from De Beers, Fabergé, Tiffany & Co., Neiman Marcus, and Margot McKinney as much as the salmon with wasabi salsa. Table centerpieces, compliments of Galleria merchants, dazzled with baubles — perhaps none more fabulous than Tiffany & Co.'s orchid-filled sterling-silver greenhouse designed by Reed Krakoff. Galleria parent company Simon and PaperCity teamed for the luncheon, which included a fashion parade from Neiman Marcus, with vignettes in the bar area from The Webster, Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Loro Piana, and Versace that had ladies counting the steps to the retailers' doors. As the ultimate party favor, Simon gifted each guest with a personalized valet parking card for a year of stress-free Galleria parking. WHO: Simon top folks Deanna Dancy and Jenny Harris, The Galleria's Chris Lane and Kurt Webb, Marita Fairbanks, Estela Cockrell, Blakeley Griggs, Nicole Katz, Francine Ballard, Lindley Arnoldy, Luba Bigman, Carrie Brandsberg-Dahl, Katie Brass, Jo Lynn Falgout, Isabel David, Christine Falgout, Becca Cason Thrash, Diane Lokey Farb, Dancie Ware, and Lynn Wyatt who popped in on her way to the airport to fly to London to attend the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
