Apart from the balloon drop — the Coconuts always drop balloons at midnight at these affairs — the übermoment was the late arrival of Pauline Pitt, sensational in a black beaded Badgley Mischka, marking her first return to the Coconuts since the death of her husband, Bill Pitt. Photographers swarmed her with an explosion of strobe flashes, causing one guest to remark, "Is Madonna here?" Madonna at the Coconuts? She should live so long.

Cece Cord, who — who doesn’t know by now? — designs dog togs with matching duds for their owners, has just finished her new cruise line called "Tiger Goes to Palm Beach," named after her four-year-old Yorkie.
