Francis Hayward packed her Valentinos and flew over to Palm Beach from the Bahamas to give a cocktail party and dinner at Club Colette, where the elite meet to eat. The reason for it all was to celebrate the American Associates of the Royal Academy Trust — and they all came, 120 for cocktails and 28 for dinner. In the crowd: Betsy Kaiser in Palm Beach staying with Julia and David Koch (she now lives in Santa Barbara), John Drexel in from Newport, Anna and Bill Mann, Jean Tailer, Leticia Gates, etc.
Dinner was served at a long table laden with pink roses and a plethora of candles. Dinner was pumpkin soup, rack of lamb and harlequin soufflé, a combination of chocolate and Grand Marnier — but who doesn’t know that?
