the hardest-working jewelry designer in new york
Genevieve Jones, the party girl-turned-sorta socialite-turned-jewelry designer, has become pretty efficient when it comes to her nighttime activities. Although it would not have been a surprise to see her out every single evening during fashion weeks of yester-season, she claims she’s much more civilized now. “I have stuff to do,” she said. “I’m a working woman.” Hence her minute-by-minute planning of last night’s cocktailing. Her first stop was at a party that Harper’s Bazaar hosted for cover star Tyra Banks, which she fortuitously left with cover photographer Alexi Lubomirski just as Banks was entering (“Alexi, my looove!” Banks crooned). In rapid succession came a cameo at the Stuart Weitzman store opening on the Upper East Side; a stop at the Empire Hotel, for a screening of Tinsley Mortimer‘s cameo in the season opener of Gossip Girl; and the last minutes of the Model.Live party, which was hosted by Jacquetta Wheeler and Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann at the Bowery Hotel. Finally, Jones meandered down to Serge Becker’s new place on Lafayette, Café Select, for the MAC dinner hosted by Fergie. Now the trick will be to see if she can, in fact, take the rest of the week off. “This was my big night out,” she said, saying she’s back to business as usual today. Maybe. “But I did promise I’d go to that La Perla party. And André 300- has his line’s launch at Barneys. And the Christie’s party. And then that has a dinner. So maybe I’ll go out tomorrow night, too.” That’s always how it starts, Genevieve.
