Last night, Operation Smile celebrated its 5th annual Smile Event at Skylight Studio in
Manhattan's West Village. White drapery cascaded down from the ceiling. Heels were high.
Table settings were ravaged after an exquisite meal courtesy of Phillipe Chow. Gowns were,
you know, flowy and big-budget. Huge sums of money were raised at the event's auction, the
proceeds of which benefit children around the world born with facial deformities.|
It's hard to segue from here without sounding like a vapid asshole, but here goes: the
crowd at the dinner after-party was comprised of beautiful people, among them, Nick Cannon
(who manned the DJ booth), actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Donald Trump Jr. ("The Donald" was
also in attendance), model Alexandra Richards, New York socialites Olivia Palermo, Tinsley
Mortimer, Annabel Vartanian, and Kristian Laliberte, and supermodel Maggie Rizer. Oh, and
something called a Mariah Carey showed up.
The gays went crazy. As we waited for her performance - which we either missed or didn't
happen - we shielded ourselves from the solar power of her butterfly bauble, while drowning
out the nearby "OMFG, it's her!" squeals with champagne.
We left about the time Cannon started spinning vintage Mariah - "Heartbreaker" wethinks -
but not before scanning the room, and taking in the beauty of the space and its occupants.
Philanthropy never looked this good.

I don't know why my last post was being censored. Anyway, eat this up (again) hey "anyone who didn't believe she can sing". One of the best live performance of "Hero". Brought tears to many eyes.

[...] thank [...] for posting [...] with the hot into [...]. Oh it's like she woke up is [...] again. I would have taken [...] out or the late Honey remix and put [...] in. Everyone is emotionally attached to [...]. She's giving us more and more jazz moments: she should go down that road. She is slowly turning into a torch singer.

Mariah's many monikers.
3. Diva O' The day
4. The Elusive Chanteuse
6."Riah" (according to Brenda K Starr, YMMV)
7. Echo eeho echo echo
8. Mirage, my personal favourite because even in high school she managed to be elusive because of being a session singer late into the early mornings. Same old Mariah.
