Scene @ Saira Rao’s Chambermaid Party

While Sarah and I were holding the fort at the first GalleyCat book swap Tuesday night, mediabistro.com chief Laurel Touby ventured uptown for a party celebrating the publication of Chambermaid, a Devil Wears Prada for the judicial branch, written by former Cleary Gottlieb associate Saira Rao (flanked in the photo above by her agent and editor, Kirstin Neuhaus of Vigliano Associates and Grove/Atlantic‘s Lauren Wein). Laurel brought along a photographer, so there’s plenty more photos where that came from.

Bierut’s design firm, Pentagram, has plenty more of Federico Rodriguez-Caldentey’s pictures, including boldface-named guests like Kurt Andersen, Chip Kidd, and Harvey Lichtenstein.
