What better time to be a celebrity in New York than Fashion Week? The HMFIC himself, James Cameron, enjoyed a toast in his honor at Michael’s, though he was momentarily flustered when Dr. Ruth Westheimer presented him with some Sex for Dummies key chains to promote her new book. Designers Zac Posen and Victoria Beckham narrowly avoided a huge faux pas by booking their after-parties at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Luckily Posen picked the Rose Bar downstairs with Russel Simmons and J. Alexander, and Posh received the royal treatment upstairs at the Roof Club & Garden where she and her design team feasted on a meal which included steak, sea bass, and mini red velvet cupcakes, prepared especially for them by Danny Meyer.
