Where: Elizabeth Anthony.

What: An Evening with Pamella Roland and Jordan Alexander.

The 411: Bobbie Nau and Elizabeth Anthony owner Julie Roberts welcomed guests to the first runway show inside the expanded boutique, showcasing Pamella Roland's spring 2015 collection, accessorized with Jordan Alexander jewelry, to support the American Heart Association. (Last month, the store hosted an unveiling of the revamped store with a tented runway show featuring Escada. For this runway show, workers installed a temporary gleaming white runway that snaked through the store.)

Roland and her team easily mingled with guests, who sipped on cocktails and light bites and admired her collection.

Who: Ilene Allen, Hallie Vanderhider, Jana Giammalva, Helen Perry, Martha Adger, Cathy Fitzpatrick, Jane Wagner, Brandon McClendon, Nancy Herzog, Janice Babel, Jeff Shell, Beth Wolff, Linda Reid, Jan McMillan, Missa Sutton, Harriet Gertner, Justin Makris and Jeanne Ruberti, who directed the runway show.
