The Gang’s All Here
It was fashion central at Cherche Midi last night, where Trademark’s Pookie and Louisa Burch were celebrating their first-ever store with a post-opening dinner for 100. In one corner Ashley Olsen, in another Olivier Theyskens, and sprinkled among the tables at Keith McNally’s new hot spot, other members of the Burch clan, including papa Christopher, former stepmom Tory, and sister Izzie. Burch père interrupted dinner to make a speech: “I’m fortunate enough to be Pookie and Louisa’s partner, and I mean that like this [makes finger quotes], which means, ‘Dad, we grew up with you and Mom, we know what we’re doing, please stay away.'” Big round of applause.
