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 think it's normal that Mariah is saying something "not nice" or criticizing her music videos because that is the way she remembers it. But on the other side, I also understand why the others are being negative about it because it has a right way to say it or do it. For me, it must have been pleasant and respectable if she is sitting like she is d... read more (Friday 29 May 2015; 14:45)
Debut era videos (53,844)
by Tiina from Finland
I think it's funny the way she discusses the videos. It's not the first time she's ranting about them though. And let's be honest, she isn't looking her prettiest in the VOL video. I would have been just as annoyed with that video. Her makeup is understated, her hair falls flat and looks crunchy and she's wearing a weird spandex leotard. Mariah is ... read more (Friday 29 May 2015; 13:39)
