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?
