Fashion’s Night Out – the big night for everyone to step it up, turn it…
We spotted Carlyn Mumm and her red lips from across the street and knew we had to snap her picture.
It was the party — the fête, the soirée, the cocktail, the kickoff, the launch, the opening, the closing — that I’d been to a thousand times. Little square napkins. Champagne on trays. Air kisses for dayyys. The chatter! The clatter! Somewhere, a Cole Porter tune played. But — but — wait — something was amiss. Upside down. Flop-flipped. This party? It had run amok. Roles were reversed. Madness mixed with mayhem mixed with more madness. Something. Not. Quite. Right. And then — I awoke. I looked around. Silence. Absolutely nothing. Was it all just a dream? Did it really happen? It must have, because you were there … and you were there … and you and you and you.
