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.

Licinio, I sent you the Mp3. Please confirm when you get it. I'm creating some more mp3's from some of the other performances.

Orkun, I'm glad you smiled over the lawsuit joke. Even though I don't personally know any fan from the Philippines, I do appreciate and admire the love they have for Mariah 25 years later. Her Asian fans have been very loyal and supportive throughout her entire career.

Thanks for sharing my FLAB video. Seeing Mariah perform live is one of the best things that happened in my life. Lord knows when she will perform again here in the Philippines. The crowd is very lively the entire show. Singing along and dancing to her songs. This is my first concert experience and it was definitely an unforgettable.
