New York, September 12-15, 2006 – “Thank you very much for coming. I’m here as Ali’s bitch”, Bono told the crowd at the launch party for the One t-shirt, made by Edun, his clothing line with wife Ali Hewson. The U2 frontman was a bit tired; he’d gotten off a plane and come directly to the Hudson Hotel for the Friday night bash, and was, in fact, the evening’s speaker, giving up the stage briefly to Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs, and to Irish singer Damien Rice, who told the crowd, “Tonight, I’m Bono’s bitch.” Rice’s declaration that the evening was “One special moment in this great, great city of noise” was prophetic.

Annoyed at the chattering during Rice’s performance, Bono momentarily lost his cool, and told the fashion crowd to “Take your f--ing finger food and f--k off” if they couldn't quiet down. He immediately regained his composure and continued with his speech, while the guests went on gabbing, apparently unaware that they’d just been told off by a rock star.

Heather Graham and Winona Ryder were ensconced in the VIP section, so we don’t know if they were talking or not. The Edun launch was one of the few New York fashion shows that Mischa Barton missed. Despite participating in the ad campaign for the One t-shirt, Kate Bosworth, Fashion Week’s other ubiquitous presence, wasn’t there.

On Tuesday, Kate Moss, Kirsten Dunst and Mary-Kate Olsen attended David Yurman's and Another Magazine’s private dinner at Milk Studios. The Dazed & Confused after party followed, with Eve, Eva Mendes, Kate Bosworth and rock spawn Sean Lennon and Jade Jagger taking in a set by The Kills. Paris Hilton, still wearing the dress she modeled in Heatherette, was all over Travis Barker.

Thursday’s Calvin Klein party was the other big celeb magnet, with Drew Barrymore, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton (again) gawking at the brand new 7 World Trade Center office tower.
