Alan Malouf recently returned from a quick trip to New York, where he and Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia hosted a birthday dinner at the Monkey Bar (Graydon Carter’s newest restaurant) for Denise Hale.

“It was great fun. Some of the guests included Anna and Graydon Carter, Calvin Klein, Ralph Rucci and Arianna Huffington,” Alan tells us.

Alan and Denise also went to Samantha Boardman Rosen’s house for a birthday party for Bob Colacello, where Alan met Andre Leon Talley and Lee Radziwill. The next evening, Ralph Rucci took him and Denise to dinner at La Granouille.

“I thought New York was definitely much busier and full of life than it was when I visited in February,” Alan says. “The stores and restaurants were jammed. It was good to see some life back in the Big Apple!”
