Since MAD MEN’s new season will not premiere until 2012 (due to contract delays), Jess James and The Hilton Garden Inn decided to host a high-style Mid-Century inspired “We Miss Mad Men”
event giving fans a Mad Men fix that would even impress the likes of
Don Draper. Guests enjoyed shopping vintage treasures from Precious Gems & Jewelry, Charleston’s Candy Shop Vintage and Je Modiste hats, Second Time Around, Style Girl Collection, The Eclectic home decor and retro inspired lingerie & swimsuit models courtesy of The Bra Shoppe. Poolside Manhattans (on the rocks) were served with music by Zach Hanner and The Sterlings and massages by Hannah Simmons while
fashionable guests vied for the highly-coveted “Best Dressed” prizes by
channeling the likes of Don and Betty Draper, Roger Sterling, Joan
Holloway Harris, Peggy Olson and Pete Campbell.

Diana’s 50th Birthday

With the passing of Princess Diana’s would-be 50th Anniversary, Newsweek created a media frenzy with a digitally aged Diana strolling the London streets with Catherine Middleton headlined with Tina Brown’s cover story titled  “Diana
at 50: Chilling with the Middletons. Tweeting from Davos. And still the
people’s princess. If not for that tragic night, what her life might be
like now.”

On a less controversial note, stylemavens on Polyvore created Diana-inspired collages (left) while The Washington Post shared slideshows of Diana’s life.

Wedding Score

the game of weddings, New York Magazine says model Kate Moss and
Princess of Monaco Charlene Wittstock are fierce rivals. Both held
3-day nuptial celebrations last weekend. “In the same way two frenemies
with overlapping sets of friends plan birthday dinners for the same
weekend,” some jet-setting guests had to make a choice.
