Mary J. Blige and Catherine Malandrino were two birds of a feather Wednesday night at a private dinner at Avenue. The pair drank, laughed and whooped it up in a banquette with friends and Blige’s husband, Kendu Isaacs. Earlier in the evening, at Bloomingdale’s, the duo had to resort to signing blank T-shirts after selling out of 700 T-shirts they designed to benefit Blige’s charity, FFAWN.

After blowing out the candle on a celebratory cake at Avenue, Blige said, “I don’t really get into the fashion world that in depth because I know it’s such a ‘Shallow Hal’ world we live in. But Catherine knows what Mary J. Blige is all about, and she supports me as a friend, as a musician and as a person, and I thank her for that.”

Malandrino later basked in more unexpected warm wishes from Bar Refaeli, who turned up with her beau, Leonardo DiCaprio, for the “Shutter Island” premiere party. Another blonde-haired paparazzi target, Michelle Williams, was also in the house.
