Oh, how I love thee, Madame Genevieve Jones: Everyone’s favorite southern social climber (I love her dearly!) is featured in the February issue of Vogue as one of Three Jewelry Designers on the Rise- she’s just releasing her (rather pricey) jewelry collection. Congrats doll!

Any thoughts on Ms. Jones or her collection? Do share! You know what to do.

Lauren Davis wedding photo

Here’s they happy couple leaving the wedding, walking to the reception at the Santo Domingo manor, which apparently is only a few minutes away by foot.

I’m on it. More photos to come hopefully.

Well, this misprint, mistake, f*ck-up, whatever you want to call it, is definitely the reason why we haven’t seen any pictures from the recent nuptials of Vogue editor/socialite Lauren Davis and her handsome intended Andres Santo Domingo… they were wed yesterday, Saturday the 18th, not Tuesday the 8th. (I thought a Tuesday wedding was beyond weird anyway!)

Many thanks to the few Fabulous.Elite.Life readers who tipped me off to the Post’s unusual mistake. You know who you are. Here’s a brief synopsis of what really happened at yesterday’s soirée:

*They were married in downtown colonial Cartagena at The Church of Santo Domingo, not on the island of Baru. A city wedding instead of an island fête? Interesting. Looks like someone intentionally led the NY Post way off base…
*The bride arrived with her father in a black carriage, and was wearing a fabulous Olivier Theyskens gown with a très long train… I’m hoping to get my hands on photos – still sleuthing!
*Along with her socialite heavy bridal party, other boldface names like Lauren Bush and Chelsea Clinton were also there in support of their friend.

Congratulations Mrs. Santo Domingo! I can only hope to be as lucky in love as you. Below, enjoy a couple pics of the newlyweds:

Note: If you’re looking for me on Tuesday, March 4th, my arse will be firmly planted on my couch, as I’ll be checking out Bravo’s East Coast counterpart to their hit series, The Real Housewives of Orange County. In the Real Housewives of New York City, camera crews followed a group of Manhattan-based socialites last summer as they conducted their daily lives; everything from mani/pedis, social lunches, charity events, home life, and anything else in between.

Click HERE to read all about the five featured females.

I personally would have rather seen Tinsley, Muffie, Dayssi, Aerin, and Lauren, but hey – I can’t have it all.

Praise be for the writer’s strike. I sure could add a few more mindless reality shows to my weekly must-Tivo list.

Thanks to (my favorite TV show) Gossip Girl, it’s now common knowledge that an eccentric, alternative lifestyle is tolerated amongst the elite. Here’s my question – why document such trysts, and allow the evidence to be distributed, and published? It’s not as if you can deny it; when have you ever known a photo to lie?

Asks Ben Widdicombe of the NY Daily News:
“Which annoying socialite will earn a place in the gossip columns if that photo of her with a crack pipe ever makes it onto the blogs?”

Wow. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words…” has never been more fitting.

P.S. – That really doesn’t look like pot. I’m just saying.

Susan Fales-Hill husband Aaron Hill

ICYDK, it’s extremely rare to find a photo of socialite Susan Fales-Hill with her oft camera-shy husband of over ten years, Aaron Hill. She’s a veteran Hollywood television writer, he’s a big shot investment banker. Aren’t the parents-of-one a devilishly handsome pair?

I hope to see more of these two out on the town together more often in 2008.

Lauren Davis

Just last week, Vogue editor/socialite Lauren Davis was set to marry her very own Prince Charming, billionaire Colombian Andres Santo Domingo on the private South American island of Baru, conveniently owned by the bridegroom’s family. Must be nice! Fabiola Beracasa and Tinsley Mortimer are said to be two of nine bridesmaids…

The bride-to-be has been noticeably absent around the Condé Nast building… When will pictures surface? I’m sleuthing, gals. Sleuthing.

Bisou Bisou,

Belle
