LHUILLIER TOASTS PRE-FALL: Monique Lhuillier hosted an event at her Melrose Place boutique on Tuesday to showcase her pre-Fall collection and unveil her new summer window displays. "I haven't had an event in my store since we opened seven years ago," said the designer, adding "The collection is only in town a short while before all the trunk shows start." Ahna O'Reilly, Ashley Madekwe, Colleen Bell, Crystal Lourd, Alexandra Von Furstenburg, Mary Alice Haney and Sally Perrin were among those who turned out then stayed for a sit-down lunch served on Lhuillier's signature china and crystal, a collaboration with Waterford. "It's hers, right?" asked stylist Petra Flannery. "I didn't want to be tacky and turn over my plate."
