was the burning question on everyone’s lips who passed through the doors of the Starrett-Lehigh Building on Wednesday night bound for Martha Stewart’s ninth floor media headquarters, the site of the Friends of the High Line benefit.
But Stewart — a huge supporter of the effort to turn the abandoned railway on the city’s far West side into a public space — was a no-show. (Murmurs rose that she’d been spotted in Maine.) Still, she was there in spirit as guests Ed Norton, Danny DeVito, Speaker Gifford Miller, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Fernanda Niven, Celerie Kemble, Jeff Klein and the charity’s co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond mingled amidst her magazine’s storyboards, her Web site’s flowcharts, a Mothers’ Day Flower Command Center and Stewart’s Signature Color Center, loaded with earth-toned swatches. One magazine editor stayed behind, hard at work in his office even as dinner was served.
Although Stewart insisted on her own caterers — and usually masterminds her own decor — event planner Bronson Van Wyck had the distinct honor of stepping in this time — or make that, the burden. "Imagining that Martha might lay eyes on your floral centerpieces is enough to give any event planner hives," said Van Wyck, who in the midst of a nic fit was informed he had to abide by one of Martha’s many office rules: no smoking. (One guest pointed out pantry etiquette rules posted on the Sub-Zero, listing over-heating sauces that could splatter as a no-no.)
"It’s not a good thing," he sighed, as he headed outside — cigarette in hand.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)
On Friday night, @yohjiyamamotoofficial received the Design for Asia Lifetime Achievement Award in Hong Kong. The 75-year-old designer has been celebrated for many years and is best known for his dark and avant-garde tailoring. “In my long career, in design, architecture, [I’ve been to] so many parties, this is the very first time that I have such a warm feeling, I really appreciate this,” Yamamoto said. #wwdfashion (📷: @dominiquemaitre)

“I’m always a big champion of a female rapper, and I’m glad to see a new voice that feels unique and authentic that’s coming up, and I think we’re going to see more great things from her,” said @itsjeremyscott about @iamcardib, who performed at @moschino’s Art Basel Miami Beach party last night. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
