There's always one party that makes your head spin during Fashion Week, and for us, it might have been the Purple Magazine bash at Freeman's restaurant. Held in honor of Julia Roitfeld, the party officially celebrated Restoration of the Monarchy, the new denim line by Eric Villency that claims Julia as its face. That was reason enough to party, but in case you need more, there was also: California It Girls (Cory Kennedy, Tara Subkoff) New York In Girls (Byrdie Bell, Sabine Heller) Truffle Mac and Cheese Lily Donaldson Too Much Wine. In a good way. During supper we sat with Euan Rellie, who told us a great love story and then asked if we'd like a cigarette. We don't actually smoke, we said. Come outside anyway, he answered. We did and found Ellen Von Unwerth and Erin Fetherston snapping digital photos in the alley. Back at the table, LeeLee Sobieski said, "I think when you meet someone whom you admire, you should tell them what you like about them. Don't resent what they have, appreciate them, and also realize what you like and admire about yourself." In the bathroom, we decided we admired our ability to walk in four-inch Marc shoes and to talk with people who scare us. But then we bumped into Julia R. R. wearing perfect white high waisted jeans, and wondered if we admired those more.
