Diane handles herself just like the royal hostess that she is when unexpected guests arrive at her party!
The roof is on fire! Or so the NYFD thought June 8 when they sent firefighters to international fashion designer Diane von Furstenburg‘s private dinner party, held at her design studio in NYC, and HollywoodLife.com was right there to catch the whole event on video!
Diane was hosting one of her usual evening shindigs in honor of her French filmmaker friend, Danièle Thompson’s most recent movie, Change of Plans, when the fire alarm went off. The guests, including celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, actress Jennifer Esposito, actor Josh Hamilton, and Elle International Creative Director Gilles Bensimon, were immediately notified that something was wrong.
The firefighters arrived around 9:15 p.m. to investigate what turned out to be a false alarm — someone just burned food in the kitchen!
Diane handled her unexpected guests like a true royal hostess, walking out of her own party to personally greet them upon their arrival with a glass of wine in hand and a huge smile.
Thank goodness nothing was really wrong — but it is always nice to see a hostess handle her guests so politely. Kudos, Diane!
