Philadelphia Style Magazine's Hot List Party- July 16th, 2009


PHILADELPHIA STYLE MAGAZINE'S 2009 HOT LIST PARTY kicked off with a bang at The Crystal Tea Room in the old Wanamaker Building on   Philly Style Magazine Past and PresentThursday night. Philadelphia Style Magazine has delivered more than ten years of the latest news in the worlds of fashion, travel, philanthropy, entertainment, home décor, architecture, and real estate to the sophisticated readers in the metropolitan Philadelphia area. The magazine's biggest supporters came out to show their thanks to Philly Style for helping put Philly on the map.  

Once you walked in through the swinging doors of the historic building you couldn’t stop to notice all of the beautiful women dressed to the nines. As you approached the Crystal Tea Room, there were some employees from Philly Style to greet you at the entrance, and a large Philly Style banner and red carpet with all of the who’s who in Philadelphia getting snapped up by photographers and paparazzi.

Philadelphia’s VIP’s celebrated with a night of food, live music by CTO who played some great Michael Jackson hits, cocktails and lots of dancing and fun. Some of the big wigs included Monica Malpass, anchor at Channel 6 WPVI, Marshall Harris, anchor at Comcast Sportsnet, John Bolaris, meteorologist at FOX 29 News as well as many other TV media personalities. One of the crowd favorites was Sharon Pinkenson, Executive Director of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.  Sharon Pinkenson, Executive Director of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.

Many people were interested to find out from her where Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, and Jack Nicholson are shooting in Philly. Rumor has it that Jack Nicholson has been spending a lot of quality time around Rittenhouse Square. A source says he’s been frequenting Stephen Starr’s Parc Rittenhouse while in town.

The party had the best restaurants in Philly like Table 31, and 10 Arts to name a couple showcasing their finest foods and mixed drinks. The Cherry-tini’s from 10 Arts were going down fast amongst the party goers. There was an exclusive casino set up in the room by Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. All proceeds from that benefited the Borgata Heart & Soul Foundation. There was a lot more dancing at the after party at Zee Bar. The owners of Dusk, a hot new club at Caesar’s Atlantic City had their own private table at Zee.  Dancer at Philly Style Magazine Party

All in all, the Philadelphia Style party proved after 10 years that Philly is one hot fashionable city of celebrities and local Philadelphians who love this city like they love their sports teams.

With Philadelphia Fashion Week just around the corner in October, Philly’s Style’s party next year may just get bigger. And after this blowout event—something better is even harder to imagine☺
