Clara and Friends do the Ritz

Jonathan Costello just sent us the photos he took at my friend Clara Shayevich‘s luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton, which she hosts annually (she is seen above with Tatiana Sorokko.)

It was an absolutely delightful way to welcome the New Year, with some of the City’s most interesting and elegant people.

This is the first year that Clara has invited men to her party — and by the good time that was had by all, I don’t think she’ll dream of keeping them away next year!
