blasblog: ponying up at boucheron

-------

Fashion folks can be a difficult breed: We want our nighttime entertainment brief, free, and fashionably late. That’s why, at the beginning of the Boucheron party Monday night, many people were left pondering why exactly the legendary French jewelry house would choose the South Street Seaport’s Spiegelworld hour-and-a-half circus, which started promptly at 8 p.m. (sorry if you wanted to see Marc Jacobs), to celebrate their 150th anniversary, and, adding insult to injury, had a cash-only bar. After Shoshanna Gruss and a few friends paid their $100 drinks tab, she reasoned that the latter was because “it isn’t cheap to find a trapeze artist nowadays.” Vanessa Traina, who hosted the party with Vladimir Roitfeld, didn’t seem to mind, either. “We’re outside and we’re looking at diamonds,” she said. “Which is all I was looking forward to.” Later in the evening, when DJ Julio Santo Domingo (that’s Tatiana’s brother and Lauren Santo Domingo’s nephew, for anyone doing a Manhattan socials family tree) got behind the decks, the Euroclass (think Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Lily Donaldson, and Andrea Casiraghi) and Americanas (Tinsley Mortimer, Nicole Richie, Dylan McDermott) got the party started, stopping only to gawk at Boucheron’s specialty Désir collection on display nearby. “How much do you think that ruby frog ring costs?” Tara Subkoff asked. “No, don’t tell me. ‘Cause then I’ll feel ridiculous complaining about the three dollars I just spent on a pineapple and soda.”
