Fashion’s most glamorous “behind the scenes” women, at least according to Men.Style.Com, were feted Monday night at - where else these days? - the Rooftop at the Gramercy Park Hotel. It was the Web site’s first go at picking the “25 Who Make the World More Glamorous,” and those selected included Valentino’s Annelise Peterson, Ali Wise of Dolce & Gabbana, Bonnie Morrison of KCD Worldwide, Eleanor Ylvisaker at Earnest Sewn, pr consultant Ferebee Bishop Taube and Victoria Traina, a student. Euan Rellie, one of the“judges” showed up with his three-year-old son, “to make sure I don’t get into any trouble tonight.” He also joked “this has been a good opportunity to flirt with women who are not my wife.” Standing next to Rellie, Peterson said it was a “great honor” to be selected by the Web site, while laughing at a comment that “she just doesn’t get enough attention, in general.” Editor in chief Dirk Standen declined to let WWD in on the secrets behind the process but hopes the list will lead to more in the future - and, of course, drive traffic to the site. “I wish I could say this is the ‘second annual’ and that we already had a long standing tradition.”
