It's not all fun and games being a socialite. Oh sure, there’s the occasional gold-plated squash court or urn full of caviar, but New York’s cultural history is marked by the contributions of many society dames (and gentlemen) who knew how to get things done. Here we celebrate the ladies who lunch – and then rebuild the kitchen.
The frigid temperatures are hardly shocking to us by now, and yet, some of our favorite social's choice head gear has been. It's more than a fur hat, it's a statement, and one that not everybody can pull off. So, from Paul Johnson-Calderon, to Kristian Laliberte, Jules Kirby, Ben Fink Shapiro, Sean Patrick Murray, and EVERYONE in between, who looks the best underneath the fur?

In case you're wondering, most NYC socialites spend as much time picking out who they will wrap around their arm as the accessories that will adorn it. Therefore, it is imperative that you pick out some satisfactory arm candy (CC note: what we used to call "walkers"). And, once you find a suitable companion, it's just as important to keep him around until you become as popular as if he was your very own straight husband. And, just like handbags, each season there seems to be the new "it" arm candy to have at your party. Let's take a look through some of the more popular brands and the class they fall under at our Guest of a Guest high school:
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I grew up with a father who was the eldest of 13. Our Thanksgiving table was long and plentiful. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for a childhood filled with family, food, and wine. I am thankful that I had uncles to play football with and cousins to elbow at the dinner table. Alas, before we get into our own gofg thankful list, I thought I would ask around town and find out what everyone else was thankful for. And so....duh duh duh (drumroll), a list of over 50 of NYC socials tell me what they are most thankful for this Thanksgiving:
Patrick McMullan (of PMc): I am naturally thankful for the usual things Friends and Family and Hope, but especially because I have 5 days in a row In the country With Mom, Sister Sharon, and son liam. Yeh!
Kelly Cutrone (of People's Revolution/"The Hills" fame): My daughter Ava.
Paul Johnson Calderon (of Paper Magazine): I am most thankful for my wonderful friends and amazing family. I am thankful for president elect Barack Obama. I am also thankful for the clarity and peace of mind that comes with growth and enlightenment. I am thankful to be living out my dreams, and most importantly I am thankful for my heath and happiness. Oh, I'm also thankful for the mega feast that is about to ensue!!
Leven Rambin (actress): I am thankful for God always giving me a sign when I ask him too. It's nice to have someone looking out for me in LA!
Liam McMullan: I am thankful that Obama is alive and well, and for all of the amazing people that make my life worth living. Like you.
Mickey Boardman (of Paper Magazine): I'm thankful for the election of Barack Obama and also I'm trying to be thankful that the hateful passage of Proposition 8 in California is galvanizing the gays into taking a stand for Human Rights. Also I'm thankful I'll be spending Thanksgiving in India since I'm a vegetarian jet setter I'm much happier nibbling on a chana saag in Varanasi than eating cranberry sauce at my parents house in Daytona Beach, Florida
Kristian Laliberte: I never celebrate Thanksgiving in the typical American or Canadian way--the dinner with all the trimmings, the big familial get together--we reserve that for Christmas. Instead, I always go out of the country with my parents who, approriately enough, are whom I most thankful for. Their unwavering support in a pretty difficult year for me has been more than anyone could ever ask.

The backstabbing! The Rose Bar Snubs! The Beatrice Inn Cliques! Everyone knows the New York social scene is way too similar to the good ol' days of high school. But imagine if we could transform the streets of NYC's nightlife to the hallways and study periods of the past. It turns out that surviving high school and surviving last night's party are one and the same. The backstabbing, boyfriend-stealing, cigarette smoking and gossip, gossip, gossip...some things never change. Can you match the New York social scenester to their high school yearbook photo?
