Just Married!

Monday, November 28, 2011

Congratulations to Dennis Basso and Michael Cominotto! Together for 20 years, the designer and his husband tied the knot this past Tuesday at the Pierre Hotel with a crowd of 400 guests and an elaborate party. Tory Burch, Douglas Hannant, Ivana Trump, Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff and Alina Cho were among the well-wishers who came to congratulate Basso and Cominotto as the newlyweds made history as the first same-sex couple to wed at the Pierre since its opening 81 years ago. An orchestra, a three-foot high wedding cake and surprise performance by Neil Sedaka—we hear the evening was nothing short of spectacular, with Basso telling his guests “All of you have filled the landscape of our lives. A zillion years ago, Mrs. Astor had her 400 list and we have our 400 list.” Here’s to 400 more!
