New York City Celebrity Sightings… Sorta: Joan Rivers and More

I’m not sure if they count as true “celebrity sightings” if you were all invited to the same party. But, at the very least, I’d consider last night’s Preston Bailey Celebrations book launch another Only You, New York experience.

Life-size sculptures of the event designer spinning giant disco balls on his fingers like a Harlem Globetrotter towered over the guests. And, with tabletop centerpieces like those, who else would provide the entertainment but Martha Wash and Gloria Gaynor?

Jeff and I slipped to the side of the room with our Leblon caipirinhas where we could fully absorb the dramatic space and admire the “HOT!” attire (yes, that was the official dress code)… when in walked Nate Berkus, the one and only Joan Rivers and their respective entourages. They camped out two feet in front of us and converted what we thought was our own quiet little corner into a makeshift red carpet for reporter interviews and photographers.

You may even notice us in the background of a few of the shots if you squint.
