HOPPING ALONG: On Tuesday afternoon, Donna Karan hosted a private lunch and viewing for Parisian jeweler Lorenz Bäumer at Karan's collection outpost on Madison Avenue. Heather Mnuchin, Jessica Seinfeld, Sloane Barnett, Nathalie Kaplan, Shafi Roepers, Marjorie Gubelmann and Ulla Parker sat at tables adorned with centerpieces that featured Bäumer's baubles atop bunches of freshly imported green bananas (so fresh, in fact, that a frog popped out of one centerpiece just before the lunch began). "Pass them down," directed Caryn Zucker, referring to the gems that the ladies were eagerly trying on for size. Barnett wore Bäumer pieces from her own collection, including a large cocktail ring — equipped with a compartment behind the stone. "It's for your Valium or your Ecstasy," the San Francisco-based socialite joked.
COLD STARE: After partying in New York last week, Jade Jagger feted her "Jagger Dagger" for Belvedere vodka at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood on Tuesday, culling a group of party pal siblings including Ione Skye and Donovan Leitch, Tatiana and Alexandre von Furstenberg, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Michelle Hicks and Sienna Guillory. "Our men are off making a movie in England, so Sienna is staying with me in Los Angeles," said Hicks, who arrived tardy, explaining, "We're on English time." Jagger, who designed the bejeweled dagger that dancers used to chip away at ice during a routine, said, "The dagger's a very English symbol, very authoritarian. I've got lots."
