What: The Editorialist and PaperCity salute to Becca Cason Thrash

Where: The Longoria Collection

PC Moment: Part class reunion, part shop-til-you-drop happening, the social swells and fashionistas turned out in force to celebrate the woman that the biannual magazine/e-commerce website anointed “one of the world’s preeminent party hosts.” A trés chic hostess not only with flare but with purpose, La Becca was praised by the print and online magazine for raising close to $75 million for the arts and charity in the wake of her much sought after parties.

Editorialist co-founder and co-editor Stefania Allen, a native Houstonian, flew in from New York with a load of the magazine’s top wares for a three-day pop-up shop in the Uptown Park boutique. She was greeted not only by old friends but also by BFF from high school Lucas Somoza, who was in from Paris for a round of high-season parties.

Who: John Thrash, Cathy and Giorgio Borlenghi, Karen Pulaski, Ceron, Sima Ladjevardian, Dominique Sachse and Nick Florescu, Rania Daniel, Kelli Kickerillo and Todd Forrester, Ericka Bagwell, Greg Fourticq, Courtney Hobson, Gracie and Bob Cavnar, and Longoria hosts Sylvia Dorsey and Elizabeth Fertitta.
