Christy Turlington's daddy, Dwaine Turlington, is flying to New York from San Francisco to escort his gorgeous daughter to the private screening of her TV flick, "Christy Turlington Backstage," at the Plaza Theater Tuesday night. (Christy and her sister Erin own the jazzy night spot, Up and Down Club, in San Francisco, you might care to know.) Have you heard the supermodel was filmed in Paris, Milan, London and New York from dawn to dawn in a closeup, take-your-clothes-off, frenzied rite of high fashion and spectacular runway shows and one-on-ones with the big guns of international style? Alright. Then have you heard the film will include charming, candid at-home footage with cunning little shots of her pierced navel? Oh, I can't tell you anything!
After the movie, Burberrys, famous for its plaid-lined, hail-or-high-water trenchcoats, is giving a party for Christy at its New York store. On hand will be such as Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Peter Brant, Blaine Trump and who knows how many other bright lights from the big city.
The big 40th birthday party for Bob Pittman of the Time/Warner Pittmans was given by his wife, Sandy, in grand fashion at Round Hill in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Repeat, grand fashion. All the guests were flown in for a three-day "dream weekend" of tennis, golf, swimming and a gala party on the beach where the dress code was "Black-tie and Barefoot." Is that a hoot or what?
Sandy hung crystal chandeliers from the tropical trees, covered the tables in damask, had Round Hill trot out its beautiful silver service and arranged for a Jamaican calypso band, the real thing. The first course was conch chowder served in a coconut shell and the champagne came up to their ankles. Would I exaggerate? Whooping it up under the Jamaican moon were Meredith and Tom Brokaw, Nina Griscom and Dr. Dan Baker, Libet Johnson Kennan, Sale and Woody Johnson and a beach full of others just like them.
