A Bit Of Sunday Joie De Vivre

-------

Looking for Shala Monroque any given Sunday? Try Café Gitane, her go-to brunch spot. But it was at the Crosby Street Hotel where Monroque (pictured, right), along with Bonnie Morrison (pictured, left), stylists Lisa Tobias and Julie Ragolia, and a mix of fashion girls, stopped for a bite (and a mimosa) to celebrate their new appointments as Joie’s “Sunday Girls.” The contemporary label tapped the ladies—along with Elettra Wiedemann, Harley Viera-Newton, and Pamela Love—to offer their secret spots and favorite haunts for the label’s new City Guides, which will accompany its Fall 2010 lookbook. And the brunch dress code? As you’d expect, this isn’t a slumming-in-sweats crew, though the talk did turn toward the athletic; hitting the gym seems to be a preferred Sunday pastime. “Joe Zee took me to a hip-hop class and I had to leave within the first 15 minutes,” Morrison confessed with a laugh. “Everybody knew the steps and had their special moves or whatever, and of course Joe goes every week, and then there was me.” Monroque empathized. “I went to a ballet class the other day and I’m not going back. In New York, you have ex-professional dancers next to you in class!” Word to the wise, New Yorkers. But they won’t be the only ones to benefit from the wisdom of the City Girls; Joie will eventually select ambassadors in L.A., London, and Paris to share their trade secrets, and will donate $1,500 to each girl’s charity of choice.

It’s not over yet, but let’s make it official: 2009 was the year of the party. The recession is just no match for the fashion world’s insatiable appetite for champers, celebrity DJs (hello, Jesus), and so-hot-right-now hotel bars. To document the trend, we pored over our own party pages and thousands more photos on Patrick McMullan. Yes, searching the Web for pics of Stavros Niarchos with his shirt half off is hard work, but somebody had to do it. The list we whittled down after much debate (maybe next year, Courtney Love) represents the tippy top of our most tireless party people—from perennial scenester Karl Lagerfeld to newcomer Shala Monroque. Click for a slideshow of our selects, and let us know if there’s anyone we forgot. To qualify for inclusion in next year’s night owl roundup, please apply at the Standard.
