Look out! A star was re born last night! Micah "Eyebrows" Jesse threw a grand old bash reminiscent of our pre-recession cheesy party days. The only thing missing were the decked out gift bags at the end of the night. There was the lit up "step and repeat" which Micah apparently spent half of the night at, and tons of characters to help celebrate the rebirth of micahjesse.com. The "attire" on the invitation read "AMAZINGNESS" and his guests were incredibly keen on what that meant. They glittered and glamoured around the Chelsea Hotel's Star Lounge while DJ Cassidy entertained them and Star Vodka kept them lubed up.

Zara Terez's leather goodies are also loved by the Jonas Brothers (anything they touch is gold), socialite Paris Hilton, stylist to the stars Phillip Bloch, recording artist Jordin Sparks, High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale, singerDaughtry, and Rihanna's boyfriend recording artist Chris Brown.
