BEST BETTS: Kate Betts’ book party Tuesday night at Milk Studios drew an eclectic crowd of designers — including Calvin Klein and Reed Krakoff — socials and magazine types. Thrown by former White House social secretary Desirée Rogers (now chief executive officer of Johnson Publishing Co.) and Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. group president John Demsey, the event celebrated “Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style” (Clarkson Potter), Betts’ first book. “Style is about so much more than what you’re wearing,” Betts said. “It all adds up — your clothing, the way you carry yourself, your charisma. Mrs. Obama has all three and that makes her iconic.” Added Krakoff: “She has a personal take on fashion. She wears what she loves, and that’s what an icon does.”
