BIG NIGHT: Jason Wu’s profile has skyrocketed since dressing Michelle Obama for the inaugural balls. On Thursday night, Angela Mariani and Anne Fahey-Storment of C & M Media, which handles Wu’s publicity, hosted a party to celebrate Wu. Philip Crangi, Monica Botkier, Bergdorf Goodman’s Roopal Patel, and Kirna Zabête’s Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley braved the cold to congratulate the 26-year-old designer. Half an hour into the shindig, the penthouse at the SoHo Grand Hotel reached full capacity, and arriving guests such as Olivia Chantecaille, Olivia Palermo and James Scully were asked to wait in the hotel lobby for a while — which they all happily did for the designer, who seemed unfazed by the sudden spotlight. “These are all people who supported me from day one,” he said. The one fan missing, though, was the First Lady herself. “I think she is busy with politics,” Wu said.
