Last night, friends and supporters of YUE Magazine descended the escalator at Trump Tower to fête the publication. With the classical strains of a live ensemble echoing throughout the atrium, guests toasted the official launch of the The Observer Media Group’s quarterly bilingual venture.
Chiu–Ti Jansen, the magazine’s co-publisher, played gracious hostess throughout the entire evening, welcoming guests (in both Chinese and English) and making introductions.
As Seen in SCENE
It’s our big launch party for SCENE and Desmond’s, the chic spot on the Upper East Side that feels part Brit private club, part downtown lounge, is packed with PYTs like Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Dani Stahl, June Ambrose, David Lipke, Charlotte Ronson, Ali Wise, Euan and Lucy Sykes Rellie, Andrew Saffir and Daniel Benedict, Anh Duong, Page Six’s Emily Smith and Erika Bearman(aka the prolific and much-followed Tweeter, “OscarPRGirl”) to name just a few.
Hot on the heels of the Oscars, the bon mots are all about the best-dressed, and really, this crew is a little better equipped to judge the sartorial prowess of Hollywood stars than say, Giuliana Rancic. Stacy Keibler‘s gold Marchesa? “A little too Oscar,” observes Bearman, and she wasn’t referring to her own boss, Mr. Oscar de la Renta.
