Everyone got their Gatsby on for the opening night of the Newport Flower Show, which was held at the magnificent Bellevue Avenue mansion Rosecliff.
Looking spiffy while socializing on the lawn were such prominent partygoers as guest of honor and New York style icon Iris Apfel, Preservation Society head honcha Trudy Coxe, Swarovski muckety-muck Russell Pagliughi, floral designer to the rich and famous Jeff Leatham, the achingly lovely Amy Harden with her hale and hearty other half, Paul, equestrian extraordinaire Jonathan Kaye with his gorgeous wife, Lynn, and one guest who said, “That woman’s name is Kenya, but she’s Mexican. I’m not quite sure what that’s about.”
Another guest said, “See that guy? My mother had a torrid affair with him for 25 years.” But the evening’s top remark came when two old friends hugged and one of them said, “I’m gonna squeeze you so hard, Whispering Angel is gonna come out.”
