The Devil Wears Prada Party

"The Devil Wears Prada," especially in the Glebe....
A fabulous party took place Saturday, March 31, 2007
at the home of Fiona Gilfillan, mixing together
approximately 115 power players and
fashionistas.
The party was based on the 2006 movie starring Meryl Streep. 
 
At the Glebe soirée the clothing was
stunningly fab,
the food was yum gourmet, the conversation was sparkling,
and, best of all, the evening was
tremendously fun. 


One of its highlights was the drinking of champagne
 from the red candied shoes that topped a gigantic Prada cake
designed by award-winning Chef Patissier Joe Calabro
 of Pasticceria Gelateria Italiana, Preston Street. 
 
The party combined Ottawa philanthropists and socially-minded folks
  to build on the strong charitable base that exists in the city.  
And a grand time was had by all....
