Chet Settin': What Happened Over The Weekend

Good morning my Miami Joonbugs. I hope the late spring warmth is greeting you as you wake up. I have so many stories to tell you from this weekend, I just don't know where to start. So, as you may have heard, Joonbug and Fashion Indie hosted PROM Class of 2010 this past Saturday night at Espace in Midtown Manhattan. It was lovely to see everyone reminisce about their own high school proms, and I was surprised to see the guest's take on "adult" prom outfits. There were some best dressed, and as my column is not meant to attack or antagonize (we'll leave that to our Almost Famous writers), I will digress and leave out the worst dressed. I have highlights so I can keep you in the loop about what's going on over here in The Big Apple.

Chet Settin': Where You Need To Be This Weekend

And what a week it has been. The Joonbug office here in New York is bustling as the event staff gets ready for PROM Class of 2010, our adult version of the momentous occasion in all our lives. Our Events Director, Staci and our PR Manager, Paige have really outdone themselves and we are looking forward to a spectacular night this Saturday at Espace on 42nd Street, just off of Times Square. I would love for all my little Joonbugs from Miami to be in attendance, but keeping with the theme of sophistication and formality, my choices for you this week will be all velvety and top notch. Aren't they always?

Kelly Killoren Bensimon: the Interview

You've already seen her at our Halloween party at Espace earlier this year. But now Kelly Killoren Bensimon is back and ready for more action at Gustavino's on New Year's Eve. Don't let her drama-instigating role on Housewives mislead you: Bensimon is more intelligent, funny, and eloquent than you think, and she's not stopping anytime soon. Love her or hate her, you better get used to her. Joonbug was thrilled to get a chance to speak with her and find out more about her family, her work, and her unrelenting quest for quality.
