Dinner With Lela Rose

Designer Lela Rose is one of those uber-chic women whose expertise extends beyond fashion all the way to food and entertaining. We stopped by her Manhattan abode for dinner, and discovered that her eye for couture also translates to exquisite taste in interior design and – of course – a knack for hosting. There’s not really anything Rose can’t do. We’re reeling with both envy and admiration…

What’s the ultimate dinner party faux pas? 

I think that when you accept a dinner invitation, you have an obligation to be entertaining. The worst faux pas is a guest in a bad mood who doesn’t follow that rule.

Who hasn’t come over yet, that needs to? What would you cook for them? 

Savion Glover. My dream is to have him tap dance on all of the tables linked together and I would cook any meal he wanted to make this happen.
