Last night I stopped by Mary Dougherty’s Nicole Miller shop at the Bellevue to help celebrate Katy Perry landing the most coveted spot on Cosmo for the month of August, wearing a new Nicole Miller design.
***Interesting note a source told me that Nicole Miller does not make this dress in that shade of purple, the folks at Cosmo digitally changed the colored of the dress for the cover. Don’t fret though, Nicole Miller is highly suggestible and agrees that this is a great color for the dress and is working on releasing a violet silk Dupioni version with the exposed front zipper in early October to meet the demands of girls that want the “Katy Perry” dress and just in time for the holiday parties. (Dupioni sometimes known as dupion or douppioni, silk dupioni is a shimmering silk that is created by weaving silk threads of two different vibrant colors into a weave that seems to change colors as the silk is moved around in different lights.)Recently I caught a Twitter by Katy Perry speaking about her cover shoot: “I was never allowed 2 buy this mag cuz the covers always showed 2much bubbie. Thank God I can now show mine to ur child that’s not allowed 2 c it in the grocery store isle.”

Mia Colona and Sarah Stapleton show off two variations of the dress in the original cobalt color, which I personally love as cobalt is my favorite color. These dresses retail between $420 & $500 available 8/31/09 same day as the Whitney Houston CD drops.Megan, Mary Dougherty and Jillian Dunn looking fashionably happy and why not the economy is picking up, and in a few short weeks they will be headed up to Bryant Park to catch the new Spring 2010 Nicole Miller NY Fashion Show line. I plan to hook up with them for a behind the scenes look at Nicole Miller’s upcoming fashions and of course the show.
A nice crowd came out for the celebration, which continues tonight at Nicole Miller Manayunk – 4249 Main Street – 5-8pm; If you look closely, real closely you can catch the head of the City Paper’s Meal Ticket’s Drew Lazor, who stopped by with his girlfriend to check out the scene.Ellen Gregory and Sally Yuan. Alma de Cuba provided snacks for the guests. As for Reese Witherspoon all they would tell me is she’s a repeat visitor and she gets the same dish repeatedly. Another guest told me that she’s seen Owen riding her bike around Drexel’s Campus, and last Tuesday rented out the stadium so he could ride it in peace without all the sports teams working out at the same time. She gave me the times and locations of repeated sightings, so I when I finally make it over to the film shoot I will have a goal in mind.
Stephanie Ragg and Leigh Ann Barnes. Stephanie is interning at Nicole Miller’s this summer and will be graduating from U of P this year. Her major is communications and she’s looking to get into the PR field, so all you PR firms she’s looking for a job and she’s a smarty.
Looks like another beauty will be wearing Nicole Miller this season.
Nicole Miller also has men’s accesories, I own a beautiful Nicole Miller tie with camera’s on it. I wore it to the party, and at a party I attended afterwards and everyone loved it and wanted to know where I got it.
Nicole Miller always has accesories for the ladies tooThere was a make-up artist to give you tips on applying your face as well as the best colors for you and your skin.Jamie Dranoff and Sarah Alford stopped by
as did the stylish Natasha Torrence and Asha Banks. Asha tells me she created her own fashion sense shopping at Burlington Coat Factory, and Nine West did the shoes.
