Jovy Janolo knows how to throw a party! I'm at his benefit for ONE.org watching the last leg of a marathon fashion show as one more almost-naked model struts down the catwalk. Bobby Trendy shows up in a full-on "Bobby Trendy Costume" which makes up for the last time I saw him in a very understated look. And I must get Hugo Boss' Hector Monserratte a sippy-cup if he keeps nursing his cosmos like that! So cute. :)
Also on hand is documentary film producer Renzo Soriano cutting a stylish figure with actor Eli Kranski. Hector buddies up to host Nathan Lee Graham, Instinct magazine's Christopher Jones, and actor Gaetano Jones. (If they got married they wouldn't have to change names!) The man himself, Jovy Janolo, finds a moment to pose with designer Thai Nguyen.
Shoe designer Tarla Makaeff cozies up to Janice Henson from ABC news. (Somewhere there's a "Jim Dickinson" that Janice has to meet!) And it turns out Tarla and I have a mutual friend going all the way back to junior high! Who knew?
Speaking of old friends, I run into Geovanny Landaverde who is working on a new underwear line. Back in the day we watched all of "Sex in The City" together on DVD while eating Zankou Chicken. (Really.) And since I'm still reeling from the SATC release party, I figure I'll close with a shot of Tarla's shoes. Why not!
