On the Scene
It All Happened Friday
SHE'S GOT THE KEY:
Master furrier Roberto Masci, left, was the guest of honor, and Carson Kressley of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," second from left, added celebrity appeal, as Patrick Gey hosted an intimate cocktail party and informal fashion show at Fendi Ala Moana Center. Gey's wife, Marissa, center, was one of several women who modeled Fendi's most recent collection of gorgeous high-fashion furs, but Kimi Matar's large metal Fendi key also attracted a lot of interest. Several people wanted to know where they could buy one, but, sorry, it's one-of-a-kind -- at least for now (Fendi guests at the Ala Moana "Red Party" last night got a smaller key in plastic).
BILL'S ON THE JOB:
Bill Maheras took a moment to talk with Fendi model Raena Cassidy. Maheras was shooting the party for Ala Moana's parent company, General Growth Properties.
Donnie Ford, center, enjoyed a glass of champagne as she watched the parade of new Fendi furs with Kathryn Drury Wagner, left, managing editor of Honolulu Magazine, and Denby Dung. Most of the guests seemed content to admire furrier Roberto Masci's luxurious creations from a distance.
Gerald Altweis, right, congratulated Andy Alvarado, left, and Alan Picard at the opening night party for "Aloha Rosie's" at Hawaii Pacific University. Alvarado delivers one of the show's best comic performances as retired Mexican bullfighter Dos Ahole. Picard gives Act II a welcome comic jolt with the piece "Nuclear Power Plant."
CONTEMPLATING THE "RED DIVER":
Jon Hamblin caught up with Joni Choi at the opening reception for his exhibition, "Jon Hamblin: Tales of Radiance," at The ARTS at Marks Garage. Choi studied art with Hamblin "a few years ago." The exhibit, dominated visually by large brightly colored pieces such as "Red Diver," continues through Nov. 26.
