The Museum of Art and Design hosts book signing party for former French Vogue editor: PHOTOS

Obviously, a party for the former editor of French Vogue was going to attract a very chic crowd. And the Museum of Art and Design’s book-signing event, which honored Joan Juliet Buck who served as the editor from 1994-2001, did not disappoint.

Hosted by Barbara Tober (the Museum’s chairman emeritus) and Michele Cohen (the current chairman), the party was to celebrate Buck’s new book, “The Price of Illusion.” Tober and Buck discussed their time at Condé Nast, which they described both as “finishing school” and “hell.”

Guests included Candace Bergen, Samantha Boardman, Ben Brantley, Tina Brown and Sir Harold Evans, Susan Cheever, Shelly Fremont, Michael Gross, Angela Missoni and Bruno Ragazzi, Isaac Mizrahi, Sheila Nevins, Nancy Newhouse, Elizabeth Peabody, Steven Rattner and Maureen White and Salman Rushdie.
