[Paula Froelich. All photos by JIMI CELESTE for PMc.] Last night John Demsey, Chairman of MAC Cosmetics,  threw a party at his Upper East Side townhouse in honor of Page Six gossip writer Paula Froelich's new book, "Mercury In Retrograde." "Mercury In Retrograde" sounds a bit like a mix between "Sex in the City" and "Friends," apparently telling the story of three successful and, of course, social New York ladies who all reside in a Soho building together.  We're sure Froelich's own experiences and her years observing the women out on the town will no doubt provide for some entertaining reading. More story and photos below... Guests at the soiree included Adam Lippes, Constance Jablonski, Emanuela De Paula, Richie Rich, Katrina Bowden, Alice and Olivia designer Stacey Bendet, Cornelia Guest, and Hoda Hotb among others.  Check out more photos below...
