Top designers turn out for Martha Stewart’s book bash
White House decorator Michael S. Smith and partner James Costos — the former US ambassador to Spain — hosted a lively book-signing for Martha Stewart and Kevin Sharkey’s “Martha’s Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering and Enjoying” at Smith’s Jasper Showroom in LA.
A source said, “They created a wall around the book jacket of 2,000 magenta roses.”
Guests on an unusually rainy LA night included David Geffen, Bruce Springsteen’s decorator Rose Tarlow and designer Jenni Kayne.
The fun continued at an intimate dinner at République with guests Tracee Ellis Ross and “Valentino: The Last Emperor” director Matt Tyrnauer.
