Philanthropist and socialite Jean Shafiroff hosted her annual Bastille Day luncheon for 40 guests at Le Cirque last week. Over tartare and champagne, her fashionable guests toasted the French on their national holiday

Shafiroff, wearing a pink and yellow silk Zac Posen dress, gave a short speech honoring the 86 people who lost their lives to terrorism in Nice on Bastille Day one year ago. In there honor she made a donation to the French Heritage Society, where she has been a board member for the last six years.

She then spoke of the need for our country to unite and avoid fighting with one another during these turbulent times.

Notable attendees included: Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, fashion designers Zang Toi, Maggie Norris, Frederick Anderson and Victor de Souza, best-selling author Nina Burleigh, feature writers George Gurley and Darold Cuba, Sharon Bush, international decorator Geoffrey Bradfield, Ann Rapp, Roy Kean, Rachel Hirschfeld, Craig Dix, Larry Kaiser, Michele Herbert, Janna Bullock, Chiu-Ti Jansen, Lee Fryd, Natalie Ross, Margot Langenberg, Joan Judell, Marilyn Kirschner, Laurel Marcus, Joyce Brooks, and infamous Club Kid Michael Alig.
