Bow Ties And Etiquette Books At Social Primer’s Opening Night

-------

K. Cooper Ray, the dashing gent behind men’s style and etiquette site Socialprimer.com, celebrated the debut of his new brick-and-mortar shop on Wednesday night, welcoming guests such as Lucy Liu, Perrey Reeves, Amanda Ross, Jamie Tisch, and Crystal Lourd. “Everyone’s trying to grab me, but all I want to do is look around and shop,” said co-host Lulu De Kwiatkowski. “It’s just fantastic and harkens back to a classic time.” The diminutive Social Primer space, which is located inside West Hollywood floral haven Lily Lodge, features bar sets, monogrammed luggage tags, etiquette books, chess sets, and custom-order extras such as playing cards, stationery, and cocktail napkins. “Isn’t it wonderful?” asked Ray of the dress code, which called for bow ties. “They just make people happy, so why not?”

The Choo-sen Ones

-------


Tamara Mellon brought some extra buzz to Cecconi’s, the new Italian restaurant on Melrose at the old Morton’s address. Her pre-Oscars luncheon on Thursday, co-hosted by fellow Brit Diana Jenkins, had the place packed. “A lot of ladies! Tamara attracts the best,” Elizabeth Banks concluded after a quick scan of the room. Debra Messing, Jamie Tisch and other done-up Angelenos chit-chatted over Champagne and lobster salad; with so many girls in the room, the burden of masculinity was left almost entirely to bear by Valentino and Elton John. During dessert, Mellon, who has temporarily set up shop at the Peninsula, mused over which proven Jimmy Choo fans might swing by for some Oscars footwear (Charlize Theron, Hilary Swank, newcomer Freida Pinto?). Mainly, though, the London-based entrepreneur was taking a break from her busy schedule to catch up with LA friends. “I love to do things that are intimate, where I can see everybody,” she explained. The paparazzi swarming outside Cecconi’s by the end of the three-hour get-together couldn’t have agreed more.
