PHILADELPHIA STYLE invited guests to join
Publisher John Colabelli and Editor in Chief Kristin Detterline to the magazine’s
11th Annual Best of Style Party.
This year’s theme was, “Style in Wonderland”, which immersed guests in an Alice in Wonderland ambiance set inside the expansive and picturesque Kimmel Center.
than 1,500 guests dressed to impress and experience an evening of
extravagance with notable Philadelphia socialites, dignitaries and
celebrities. It was a great venue for such a huge party.
A stunning array of stylish cocktails,
hors d’oeuvres, and desserts were enjoyed
in addition to an
exclusive casino room presented by Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. All
proceeds from the casino room will benefit the Borgata Heart & Soul
Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to
impacting the lives of others in a positive way through supporting
community, health and human services, culture and education.
Best of Style Party is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Audi Dealers. I heard there was an Audi VIP VIP room, but I couldn’t find it. I asked someone where it was and they told me the whole party was a VIP Party. But I still missed a whole bunch of people like the hosts. Although in my defense I only stayed one hour as I am still reeling from this summer cold, and it was Mike’s Bday. So bummed I didn’t take any pixs of him and he looked so cute in his new glasses, from Eye Encounters owned by Billy Nigro, who I saw for a fleeting moment.
Who did I see, well legendary Jade Starling, looking as fabulous as ever. Jade tells me she’s been touring this past year since she released her CD “Captive”, and several of the songs were hot on Billboard.

Smith and his partners are opening up a second The Milk House Restaurant, next to Smiths, in the old Matyson restaurant. Smith tells me on the weekend they’ll have late hours closing at 3AM.
