Emmy Rossum of Phantom of the Opera fame and recently named Youth AIDS Ambassador hosted a fete for Lipton’s new Pyramid Teas. Not your standard tea party, the venue was wall-to-wall well-dressed New York scenesters, models, and socialites sipping on tasty cocktails made with Lipton’s fruity new brews housed in fashionable pyramid shaped tea bags. GENART presented six up and comers who had designed stunning creations for each flavor: Green, Red, White, and Bavarian Berry tea. Models posed in mini tableaus placed around the party.
I brought my friend Becky along, she’s a HUGE Tori Spelling fan and the mommy-to-be was in attendance with her actor-husband Dean Mc Dermott along with Karolina Kurkova, Miss Universe, Miss Teen USA.
We didn’t get to play our usual game of “Who’s a Fashion Don’t” because everyone was so en vogue but we did enjoy plenty of ISLAND MANGO MAR-TEA-NIS. Green Tea Cosmos fueled our all-nighter at the after-party at Marquee. Note: Even if the event requires hot heels, it doesn’t mean you have to dance in them for five hours. Ouch.
Becky and her very pregnant hero Tori Spelling in what we think is Marie Marie.

Bavarian Wildberry is a black tea, Gustavo Cadile’s velvet gown and crisp fall scene epitomized the tea with bits of dried berries.
