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.

||Pushback? Nope (42,720)
by tobby from canada|
Guys, May 6th is the only date we got since the orginal pushback of last July. It's not like she keeps changing the date over and over. It was July 23rd, then she thought she wanted more time to work on it and now it's May 6th, period. Enjoy the album.
