Smash star Katherine McPhee looked smashing (har!) in a turquoise Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2012 frock at Thursday night's cocktail reception for Audemars Piguet, which was celebrating 40 years of Royal Oak at the Park Avenue Armory. Lovely! Now what's this about the Post reporting that McPhee paid a visit to Vogue to meet with Anna? Things that make us go hmm...

What did one wear to "be in the height of trendy fashion" in the 1970s? Platform shoes! This hilar vintage vid is mini doc asking experts and people on the street to chime in. We adore the lovely man who explains the customer for those crazy things: "All types. The manager of the drug store, because he mixes with trendy people." Just watch and love.

Dance On, Royce!

Thanks for the memories! Thanks for the memories!

We're sad to hear about the death of the legendary Royce Reed, who passed away in her sleep on Tuesday night. The supremely old-school Hollywood resident came to our attention in 2009 when footage of her dancing to Engelbert Humperdinck's "Quando Quando" went viral. (Words we don't write every day!) Reed's YouTube videos with her roomie Marilyn Hoggatt (who died last year) alongside a big bunny became an internet sensation. In 1999 Reed told LA Weekly: "I'm a clothes person, a fashion person. I was raised by rich, rich, elegant people who bought only the finest, everything made to order. You cannot handle anything else as a woman—it is your life." Watch Reed get down one more time!

Tuesday marked Priscilla: Queen of the Desert's first anniversary on Broadway...and the celebrations were anything but a drag. (Har.) Not only did the show win the 2011 Tony for best costume design, but Tony Sheldon (aka Bernadette) earned a best leading actor Tony nom. Sheldon's had a busy week, popping over to one of Australia's most famed bakeries, Pie Face, at its new outpost on 53rd and Broadway to see the unveiling of the limited-edition "Priscilla Pink Pie Face Pie." Yes, really—it's a delish raspberry confection with a layer coulis dipped in pink glaze and doused in sparkle. Then it was off to the TKTS Booth in Times Square, where pep squad Cheer New York "serenaded" the crowds with a special Priscilla cheer. Done? We think not!  Chic snuck backstage for a moment with Sheldon himself. Peruse the Gallery, people! 

Who’s your favorite Tony?
Well, my partner’s name is Tony, and mother’s name is Tony so I have two favorites, actually. 

What are their signs?
My partner’s a Taurus and my mother’s an Aries. I’m a Virgo. On paper, we’re not supposed to get along!

Are you a frequent road tripper?
We lived in Melbourne when I was a kid, and my dad would say, 'Want to go for a drive?'  Two days later, we'd end up in Brisbane! 

Have you ever experienced a wardrobe malfunction with these costumes?
We had a monstrous matinee one day. I knocked glasses and wigs off into the wings. Then I fell over before I made an entrance and shredded my legs completely, ripped all the stockings...

But the show went on!
Yes! Then I got onto the bus on stage, and in all the confusion, an entire costume was gone. I played the rest of the first act in my underwear. 

The show is full of references to Les Girls. Do they really exist?
They do! My character was based on Carlotta. She’s a legend. She had the first public sex change in Australia, you know.

Are you the Bernadette of the group?
Only in terms of age, since I’m older than the rest of the cast, but they see me as the naughty one [laughs].

What’s your day like?
I used to smoke and drink, but around the time I hit 50, I thought thought, 'This is crazy.' Suddenly, more opportunities came around—really big musicals, like Priscilla and The Producers. I don’t go to the gym, but I come to the theater three hours before each performance and work out here. I bring my yoga mat and do my vocal exercises. I’ve done the show for nearly six years, and I spent the first three in pain, but now I’ve worked out a program.

How do you unwind?
I'm a television junkie. I saw the first episode of GCB, which had me laughing out loud. And I’m a Downton Abbey addict like everyone else—it’s The Bold and the Beautiful with corsets. I love trash!
