TOKYO — As Paul Stuart continues to celebrate its 75th year, its parent company, Mitsui & Co., hosted an anniversary bash Thursday night at an historic European-style mansion in Tokyo.
Guests entertained themselves by playing a variety of casino games, including blackjack, baccarat and roulette, through which they were able to win Paul Stuart merchandise as prizes. There was also a small fashion show presenting the fall collection of Phineas Cole, the company’s edgier, more fashion-forward brand. New York-born singer and songwriter Jesse Harris gave a short live performance.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
