Last night, Sarah Jessica Parker and alleged ambassador wannabe Anna Wintour co-hosted a $80,000-a-couple fundraiser for President Obama in the swanky West Village townhouse Parker shares with hubby Matthew Broderick and their young kids.
As we reported earlier, a lucky ‘Bama booster won a spot at the Night in New York event and, given the guest list (Parker, Wintour, Michael Kors, Meryl Streep, Mariah Carey), we venture to guess the sweepstakes winner was a friend of Carrie, if you catch our drift.
Well, according to the New York Post, the back story to this posh party was juicy enough to fill a month’s worth of gay brunches.
Apparently Wintour was in full high-maintencance mode, redecorating Parker’s home to suit her more refined tastes. Page Six reports:
Sources said the fashion oracle wanted to clean out SJP’s “shabby chic” furniture. One told us, “Anna was going crazy about the decorating. She was having a lot furniture removed and sending all of SJP’s tchotchkes upstairs.
“Some of the stuff in the house was shabby chic, and let’s just say, Anna wanted less shabby, and more chic,” the source added…
A small battalion of cleaners was spotted scrubbing door handles and windows outside the house. Yesterday, dozens of plump, white roses were delivered along with rental chairs, and a gardener planted mini- ferns out front.
As Miranda Priestly would quip, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”
