There is something about a fine set of jewels that outweighs – well, just about damn near everything else. They sparkle, they frame, they reward! You can always find another piece, but the right set of jewels are everlasting. (I hope you don’t need me to explain that…) So when I got a request to cover the Chopard 150 Years of Excellence gala on the Upper East Side on Thursday, I promptly passed on all else (Halle Berry be damned!) cuz if I can’t wear em, I’m damn giddy to catch me a glimpse of them. (Call me a simple homo…)
The dazzling array of beauties included Gwyneth Paltrow, Christina Ricci, Kate Hudson, Eugenia Silva, Claire Danes and Georgina Chapman – all of whom paraded by looking couture fabulous, adorned by – you guessed it – Chopard jewels! Deliciously so.
And the ladies who lunch set, never to be outdone - with skin pulled tighter than a canvas – made sure that if you didn’t register their oh-too-tight expressionless faces, you surely registered the six-figure+ sets. Yes, I speak for myself.
Of course if I gave much thought to the fact that the celebrity attendance assuredly got their just rewards for merely sashaying by the sidewalk aligned paps in Chopard jewels while we got nothing but a photo opt – I might start to undo the gains of some pills I won’t name just right this second. And it really is just about the jewels…!
But given that the good folks at Laforce+Stevens expertly orchestrated a step-and-repeat that deserves to be applauded, there is little for me to complain about – if only every event we covered were this simple… and what jewels, dammit!

I know girl ran and used a hand sanitizer hidden in her publicist purse.
Hell, I was grossed out myself given that, from my vantage point, I had long ago spotted the sweat dripping down the rolls of his neck from said head. Had I taken the time to eat breakfast, I would have surely upchucked it!
The sad part (it does get sadder!) is that she wasn’t the first to pen on the barren landscape!
Alec Baldwin had done the initial honors and left this mamoth individual to gloat to all within earshot (and then some, thanks to cell phones) about how his “favorite” actor had signed his fat balled head.
Well, the bitch Danes (who was once blamed for Mary Louise Parker’s split from Billy Crudup,) gets the man (again) so I’m going to sit here and gloat with the solace of my having got the photo! (I know, I know, but I have to tell myself something to keep from finding her and kicking her in the small of her back!)
Congrats to the happy couple!
