    Today is Wass Steven's Birthday and we would like to wish a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the legendary (and most stylish) doorman.  We missed out on his birthday party last night (at Marquee of course), but would like to take a moment today to toast another year of impeccable style ala Wass Stevens. Wass sports custom made Ron & Ron suits and runs the door at Marquee.  Always located on the left side of the door, he relishes in his 30% acceptance rate, and 70/30 girl-guy ratio (sounds like he is running a school of higher education).  At Veruka, Wass was known as the highest paid doorman in New York City, and has certainly continued this trend at Marquee.

    Well, whatever birthday this may be....you can't put an expiration date on Wass Stevens.  He will always be in style.  Here's to another year well done Wass!
