Memo Pad: Desirée Rogers, Case Closed... Tonchi Talk...

For those wondering what Desirée Rogers wore to the White House Correspondents Dinner, a spokesman revealed the answer.

HOPE FOR THE BRIDE: Modern Bride handed out 25 awards to “trendsetters” in the industry at the New York Palace Hotel Tuesday night. And, unlike many magazines, which are scaling back on their event budgets, everyone was partying like it was 2006. “We have kept the economy in mind, but we didn’t really alter this event because look who’s attending — we have to impress them,” said editor in chief Antonia van der Meer. Wedding planner to the stars Colin Cowie received an award, along with Ivanka Trump, Ronnie Rothstein and Mara Urshel (of Kleinfeld) and the “Today” show’s Jean Chatzky, who sat alongside new husband Eliot Kaplan, editorial talent director at Hearst Magazines. Publisher Jen Hicks said the event brought in new business, with Wedgwood and SES Creations, which served as sponsors. “All the indicators show that things are looking up,” Hicks said. “We are a lot better off than some.” — Amy Wicks
