No Met Gala? No Problem
(NEW YORK) While one editor-in-chief spent Monday evening presiding over the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, others managed to occupy themselves just fine. Life--and chic--must go on!
STACY MORRISON, REDBOOK: "I tried not to get completely soaked at the Red Sox-Yankees game with two friends from college."
MARGARET RUSSELL, ELLE DECOR: "I loved hearing about the gala this morning but nothing could have been farther from my mind last night. Our next book, Style & Substance: The Best of ELLE DECOR, is due at the printer in less than two weeks and I was bleary-eyed at the computer writing captions past midnight. I could certainly do better at making this all seem effortless!"
PAMELA FIORI, TOWN & COUNTRY: "I had just returned from several days in St. Barts attending Olivia Chantecaille and Ren Grady's wedding. The only costume on my mind, apart from what I wore to the official functions, was a bathing suit and it was made of Lycra!"
