Moonlight smile

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.

When I hear that song I think of her on top of a piano like when she did YM(E). But I didn't like the dress she wore, I'm thinking a dress with more support. And the piano can spin like the spinnin... read more

Thoughts (45,523) by Shelly from United States

I like reading everyone's posts unless they're plain mean, constructive criticism is fine. Honestly, I just want one more hugely commercially successful era and I can die happy. I remember in 2005 even my then 13 year old cousins were into Mariah, one even stole all of my Mariah CDs. MC was already 35 then. Mariah still looks good. She can still ma... read more

Fans and criticism (45,521) by this_is_qhm from the Philippines

There are 3 types of fans on this board: the critical ones who can be quite pessimistic, the eternal optimists, and those that fall in between. No type is better than the other, we're all fans after all. But in this unprecedented messy era, I believe it'd be better for us to be one those combination fans who aren't hesitant to call out the b.s. but... read more
