The subject was jewels — in book and exhibition — at the party in the Forbes Galleries hosted by Forbes heir Kip to celebrate the publication of "Louis Comfort Tiffany at Tiffany & Co." The book’s author, John Loring, who knows everything about Tiffany’s illustrious history, oversaw the exhibition of the first public showing of the world-famous artist’s jewelry in almost 70 years. John is just back from Brazil where he was entertained by the film, fashion and diplomatic elite of Rio and São Paulo, including such notables as Dom Joao de Orleans and Braganca, the grandson of the last Brazilian Emporer. Oh wow, John!
After the Forbes party, the gang went on to another party at Loring’s town house in Hell’s Kitchen for a family-style dinner, and that’s exactly what they had, Bill Blass’ designer meatloaf and two Tiffany boxes — not for jewels — but for dessert in the form of petits fours and ice cream colored Tiffany blue with the help of a little Curaçao liqueur. Oh wow, John!
