Tonight, Fendi played host to the launch of John Baldessari's book (written and curated by contemporary arts expert Sharon Coplan Hurowitz.) If you don't know Baldessari's work, we would highly suggest taking a look. It's conceptual and multi-format, but in our opinion, not the least bit contrived. (A retrospective is currently touring from the Tate to LACMA to the Met.) And from the looks of the crowd at the party tonight, we're not alone. The uptown store was packed. We especially loved the decked out piano, and when Elew (who we hear is Donna Karan's favorite) started getting all jazzy on it. Unfortunately we couldn't stay for the whole set as we had to jet to celebrity colorist Rita Hazan's fete a few blocks away. (Stay tuned for a very fun Life With Rita soon!) But all in all it was a colorful evening. Plus we were home in time for fashion's new favorite TV show, Glee, on the DVR. Good times, good times.
