RENA’S TRUE BLUE: Rena Sindi still knows how to throw a serious party. In the years since she exited Manhattan’s social scene and took up residence in London, the “Be My Guest” author divorced her husband Sami Sindi and recently remarried.
Late last month, she married the financial mover-and-shaker Makram Abboud privately in London. But Sindi later threw a five-day blowout in Beirut. Adam Lippes, Colin Cowie, Eva Lorenzotti, Ashley and Jeff McDermott, Serena Boardman, Dennis Basso and Michael Cominotto were among the revelers who checked into The Four Seasons for the festivities. The celebration was capped off with an ocean side dinner and dance for nearly 500 guests at The Orchid Beach Club by the Sea. Sindi wore a pale blue to dark blue ombré Roberto Cavalli dress for the finale, and her two daughters followed her lead, also wearing blue dresses from the designer.
