Then it was the Hales' turn. In honor of Veronica and Randy Hearst and their little visit in S.F., Denise and Prentis gave their own dinner for 24 at Stars. Denise wore Gianfranco Ferre's off-white dinner jacket and black pants; Veronica wore Chanel's short dark blue dinner jacket with a white blouse, a white satin tie, black and white striped pants and a cummerbund and Ann Getty wore Saint Laurent's snappy tuxedo. No skirts for these trend-setters. Among the other guests were Danielle Steel and John Traina, the Frank Jordans, Nancy and Joachim Bechtle, Margaret and Will Hearst, Dodie Rosekrans, Ken Rainin, Nancy and Paul Pelosi and Sally Jordan, whose settlement is now final after her divorce from Tom Jordan of the famed Jordan Winery. Sally got loads of money, but Tom got the winery -- and a new wife, Sondra.
The AmFAR benefit, "Takin' It to the Street," set for Wednesday at Manhattan Center, is, according to chairmen Gayfryd Steinberg and Carolyne Roehm, going to be "way cool." Robert Isabell is doing the decor, there will be feather boas for the ladies, panama hats for the men and shades for everybody. How way cool can you get. For entertainment there will be Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine, The Persuasions and The Stingers and among the guests will be Laura and Jonathan Tisch, Robert Steinberg and Mary Pope, Chessy Rayner, Arnold Scaasi, Judy and Sam Peabody, Lynn Nesbit, Georgette and Robert Mosbacher and others too way cool to mention.
