The LDV Hospitality consultant (and queen of New York nightlife) on fashion and unforgettable parties

During fashion week, I never get tired of…
The styling. I love seeing everyone dressed to the hilt.
The secret to a great fashion party…
The devil’s in the details. You have to have a fantastic DJ, great noshing food, good service (people ready to hand you a drink when you walk in) and nice mood lighting. And it’s never going to be a fun party if you don’t have an eclectic group of people — you need all kinds.
And the formula for the right mix of people…
If I tell you, I’d have to kill you. People pay me a lot of money for that information.
Favorite party food…
My grilled cheese sandwiches! And pigs in the blanket — I just love them. I could eat an entire bowl.
And if I’m having a dinner party…
My risotto, with goat cheese and wild mushrooms, is impeccable.
When in doubt, I wear…
The go-to little black dress. And a Nicole Miller dress from her archives that she’s remaking for me.
At a party, I break the ice by…
Telling a joke. Even if people don’t think it’s funny, I end up laughing at myself.
As a host, I like to surprise my guests with…
An unusual guest or an amazing performance. Or a really phenomenal secret location.
On your party playlist…
I’m super-spoiled because I’ve not had to make a playlist since high school. I have the world’s most amazing DJs — Donna D’Cruz, Mateo, Uncle Mike….
Most memorable fashion party…
The 2008 Armani/Met Ball birthday afterparty for George Clooney. Fergie sang. John Mayer sang. Sting sang. We had a fireman come deliver the cake — it was hilarious.
My one guilty party pleasure…
Karaoke — I love it! Anything by Journey, anything Eighties. I always blow my voice on the first song, but it doesn’t stop me.
