Beatrice's own Rian Fossett spun like an angel over the crowd (will all chic downtown boutiques forever more have to be built with DJ booths?) while boys in black served up whiskey punch. We ran into a pair of Scallywags making nice with models by the door as we headed out onto the cobblestones, passing crowds of perfect button noses and disheveled blonde hair pressed up against the glass.
