Dealer's Choice

| May 26, 2011 | Parties

The Party: A star-studded preview party and silent auction celebrating the four-day antique show, held at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar. The Players: Hosts Bill and Maria Bell, Kristen Buckingham, Waldo Fernandez, Patrick Herning, Tracey Jacobs; design world royalty Barclay Butera and Windsor Smith; local luminaries Ellen Pompeo, Lisa Kudrow, Heidi Klum, Julia Sorkin, Kathy and Rick Hilton, Laurie David, Lara Spencer, Lionel Richie, Lynda Resnick. The Highlights: The entire cast of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators reality show was on hand. But with the exception of Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner, most of the program’s designers, including Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Kathryn Ireland and Jeffrey Alan Marks, preferred a divide-and-conquer approach to working the hangar instead of mingling as a branded unit. McDonald also collaborated with Decades owner Cameron Silver to create a vintage-inspired entrance tent featuring art, fashion and design.
