The Eleanor Lambert Press lunch on Sunday was very nice. Eleanor had one of the biggest crowds ever. Bernadine Morris introduced me to Suzie Menkes. I finally met the "legend" after so many years seeing her at the shows. Geoffrey Beene showed up as well as Elsa Klensch. A lot of familiar faces - I think even Glenda Baily was there but not sure - and the bake ham was great as usual... Our editor Marilyn Kirschner is sure on a roll, she has appeared twice now on Full Frontal Fashion being interviewed about the vintage outfits she was wearing; got a front row seat at Anne Klein and even Merle Ginsberg, the Entertainment Editor of 'W', turned around from her front row seat to tell Marilyn just how great she was looking. By the way, some of Marilyn's vintage clothing and accessories are now going on sale at Bergdorf Goodman.
