A red-carpet entrance at the Grand 16 led into A Night of Glamour for the advanced screening of Sex and the City 2, sponsored by Moss Mercedez-Benz. Champagne flowed as glitzy guests nibbled on yummy finger sandwiches (loved the cucumber!), roasted veggies and sweet treats by a la carte. Keeping with the Moroccan theme, petite and precious Janie Domengeaux Bayard stole the show with a beaded red headdress. Trend-setter Julie Calzone, decked out with jewelry from Kiki, sported an eye-catching ring blazoning the apropro “Unhitched.” A decked-out Jean Coluzzi wowed the crowd in a Middle Eastern-inspired magenta frock threaded with gold accents. Also at the glamorous premier were host Sharon Moss, son Cory and daughter-in-law Sarah, tennis pro Chanda Rubin and sis Lashon, a sharp-dressed Chip Jackson and Dr. Jennifer Hightower Jackson, Janie Campbell in a stunning black halter dress, and the always-fashionable artist Hope Hebert. As for the movie, it’s an Abu Dhabi-do!
