last round of recap cocktails. The dinner was divine, but perhaps most of all, the conversations in that tent were enchanting. As dessert was served, guests were treated to an abbreviated live auction conducted by Sotheby's. Another credit to Thrash is that almost no one refused her request for items. One of the big blocks up that night was a bespoke watch designed by Tiffany, which was purchased for a generous amount by restaurateur and art collector Michael Chow. Among the socialites, celebrities, and art- world stars spotted: Longtime Francophile and chairman of the American Friends of the Louvre board Kip Forbes; Ina Giscard d'Estaing, whose father-in-law was French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing; Hôtel Ritz GM Mark Raffray; Patrick Hessler, in from Austria; Parisian Lucas Somoza; Baroness Rose Anne de Pampelonne, in from her Singapore residence; and designer Naeem Khan. L.A. locals in attendance included Regina and Gregory Annenberg Weingarten, former Parisians who moved to L.A. with their children; actor Chris O'Donnell; Julia Sorkin; designer Monique Lhuillier; former Ambassador Robert Tuttle and his wife Maria; Carolyn Powers; actress Jennifer Tilly, on the arm of style icon Cameron Silver, owner of vintage couture nirvana Decades; one half of art-world darlings The Haas brothers, Nikolai Haas; and James and Natalie Bloomingdale. For Bravo aficionados, yes, a few Housewives made it to an event (thankfully sans television crew), including Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff. And, lest I forget the crew from Texas: Phoebe and Bobby Tudor, Derek and Christen Wilson, Zoe Bonnette, Lisa Arpey, Lucinda and Javier Loya, Michael and Melissa Mithoff, Milton Townsend, Elizabeth Peterson, Martha and Richard Finger, Nickki St. George, Brian Bolke, Ceron, Kim and Justin Whitman, Myrna and Bob Schlegel, Caroline and Corey Kelly, Valerie Fuller, Karen Pulaski, and Duyen Huynh Nguyen and Marc Nguyen. One of my party recaps wouldn't be complete without accolades for those who came wearing their A-game. First off, Moll Anderson, at the Bells' party in an emerald- green slip dress topped with an entrance- making kaftan-style robe from La Vie Style House. Moll's son, Mike Camello, had generously provided Kástra Elión Vodka (the company he co-founded), and was there with his gorgeous wife, Aphrodite. Lance Scott went with the top two Toms for both evenings: head-to- toe Thom Browne (is there any other way to wear the king of shrunken suits) for the night at Eugenio's and Tom Ford for black tie at the Bells'. Duyen Huynh Nguyen looked glorious wearing Bach Mai's deep-V strapless column gown in Strawberry Lemonade. Ceron paired a traffic- stopping black-and- white printed Gucci jacket with marabou cuffs (from the Love Parade collection) with a long black Ann Demeulemeester skirt he'd found at Maxfield just hours prior. Finally, Crystal Lourd must have gotten a sneak peek at the color theme of the tent at the Bells', as she opted for a stunning green Giambattista Valli. And the best drop-the-mic moment with which to end: Miss Thrash raised more than $2 million that week for the cause.
