The sharks are circling, even if the oceans are getting a lot shallower with our current liquidity crisis, and that feeling of terror can only mean one thing: tea time with a princess. Bergdorf Goodman hosted a tea party Monday evening with Bob Colacello who feted a “premier epicurean collection,” created by Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis.
Gourmet chocolate and buttery cookies with "G"s seem a funny thing to be launching now but the social set types lke Lee Radziwill, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Agnes Gund and Bettina Zilkha all showed up to pay homage to the dainty new collection of munchies.
We find this all a little charming and more than a bit curious as Gloria was known as the punk princess and "Princess TNT" in the 1980s with her lavish spending and nonstop social life. We hate to make a twilight of her youth joke but tea time does come just before dusk. Good thing she looks so fantastic yes?
