The Republican National Committee's 1994 Annual Gala will honor President Ronald Reagan on his 83rd birthday on Feb. 3. The big gathering at the National Building Museum in Washington will have as a special guest the one and only Margaret Thatcher -- Lady Thatcher to you -- Ronald Reagan's pal and ardent admirer through the good and lean years and in all the in-between years, all the way. Everybody will wear black tie and help raise a lot of money for the RNC. Expected are Republican governors, senators, congressmen, former administration officials, business leaders, celebrities and close friends of President and Nancy Reagan.
Nancy will be in New York at the end of this month and will be seen at little dinners in her honor given by Carroll and Milton Petrie, the retail king, and Lily and Edmond Safra, the powerful international banker. And Cecile Zilkha will give a little lunch for Nancy and the chums, many of whom will be in Washington for RR's birthday blast.
The weather may be foul in Paris, but not foul enough to keep Goldie Hawn from shopping till she's dropping. Two hot designers in Paris now are Corinne Cobson and Lolita Lempicka and that's where Goldie's been hanging out. She bought a to-the-floor chenille coat and matching hat at Lempicka, which made her look like a cute little throwback to the Twenties, just the look Goldie had in mind. At Corinne Cobson, she chose two transparent muslin dresses, both totally see-through, so, in the interests of modesty, Goldie wears one on top of the other. Is that adorable or what?
Goldie, Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, who are staying at the Plaza Athenee, were seen night before last dining at Le Duc, perhaps the best seafood restaurant in Paris, maybe the world. The three of them had flown over on producer Andy Vagna's Gulfstream 3 to promote Kurt and Val's new movie "Tombstone" and are on their way to Munich, Istanbul and Spain. It's a tough life, but, hey, it keeps the wolf from harassing you at the door.
Nicole Kidman is another one who's been hanging out at Corinne Cobson. Last week she flew to Paris from London just to shop there for the day. Nicole was in London with her husband, Tom Cruise, who has been filming "Interview With A Vampire" there. Now she's back home, and Tom will be back on Sunday. They hate being apart, and anybody taking a really good look at both of them should know the reason why.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
