Pulse: Chatter: Brooke De la Villanova: High Society: February 2009

You couldn’t tell it was winter from the slinky metallic number Patricia DiGeorge (so gorg!) shimmied around in at the eighth annual Champagne & Snow Ball, co-hosted by her hubby, real estate mogul Christopher (who bears an odd resemblance to the author Christopher Hitchens), and hedge-fund honcho Robert Marcin. Among the 250 joining Tish’s dangerous curves and killer blow-out were John Westrum, Thom Cardwell, and the increasingly socially ubiquitous Mary Patel. … Super-glam ex-model Dasha Yermakova (who just split with hubby Jason Klein) is bringing her Miss Universe-worthy name and rising-star status on the charity circuit to town, trading in her Gladwyne address for new digs on Rittenhouse Square. … Recession, dumplings? Evidently the folks at Penn (Edgar’s alma mater) didn’t get the memo. Their invites for an “Around the World by Private Jet” tour next November trumpet a month-long sojourn to Machu Picchu, the Great Barrier Reef and the pyramids, among other places, complete with chef, staff, even a doctor. All for a tidy $56,950 per person. Can’t wait to hand in that expense report!
