Mark Gilbertson is the El Exigente of the Upper East. When the demanding one speaks, the social flock listens. And when it comes to the Winter Ball of the Director’s Council of the Museum of the City of New York, they make their husbands, grumbling or not, come along, too. The party Thursday night at Cipriani 42nd Street attracted all the usual suspects, decked out in their finest on an unseasonably spring-like night. The décor dazzled but was merely a backdrop for the parade of long dresses and long legs (which kept many of those husbands from wearing long faces). 


Attendees included Amy Fine Collins, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Nicky Hilton Rothschild and James Rothschild, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Somers FarkasJamie Tisch and Julian Gratry, Jamee and Peter Gregory, Allison and Peter Rockefeller, and Christine Schwarzman.
