All photos by ZACH HYMAN for PMc] Brooke Shields, Gay Talese, Bob Colacello, Nina Garcia, Candace Bushnell, and Harry Benson were just a few of the luminaries who attended a dinner hosted by George Farias at 21 Club in honor of Jay McInerney's new collection of stories, "How It Ended". The collection is so raunchy that McInerney's wife, Anne Hearst, recently warned Rudy Giuliani against reading some of naughtier stories (Does Giuliani stick to G-rated fiction?). And as readers of this site know, at the last party Brooke Shields attended a fight broke out supposedly over her honor. So what about this party? Here's How It Ended: Guests were on "Model Behaviour", and all attendees went home with honor and noses intact...
