All photos by BILLY FARRELL for PMc] Socialites converged at the Vera Wang store yesterday for the launch party of Jodi Della Femina's book By Invitation Only, a summer read about the world love, scandal, and social status in Manhattan and the Hamptons. Guests included Olivia Palmero, Kelly Bensimon, Fern Mallis, Betsey Johnson, and others. This isn't Della Femina's first venture into writing. She's co-written two cookbooks, started the local newspaper, and also penned guidebook, Jodi's Shortcuts -- all inspired by the Hamptons.
