Memories of the 1977 Opium party aboard the Peking lingered over the glistening surface of the Hudson River Sunday night as Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller used their 305-foot yacht, EOS, to launch her new fragrance, Diane, in a fashion regal enough to make an oil sheik envious.
As she held court in one of the opulent rooms aboard the mega yacht — said to be the largest private sailing yacht in the world — von Furstenberg, clad in an orange sequined tank dress, thanked her husband for throwing the party: “Barry doesn’t like to have one person on the boat and we have dozens tonight,” she said of the evening, which welcomed 85 guests aboard. And a generous von Furstenberg offered a repeat visit to whomever could correctly predict how long it would take the ice-sculpture replica of her fragrance bottle to melt.
