The party for Jane magazine’s second annual “Naked Issue” had all the makings of a crowd-pleaser: a breathtaking venue (James Goldstein’s Beverly Hills home, with its nosebleed views, koi pond, and highly stylized architecture—accessible by golf cart after guests left their cars with valets), tons of free stuff (gift lounges provided by sponsors Dollhouse, Samsung, and Absolut), the requisite pampering (hand and neck massages, manicures by O.P.I.), and celebrity cache (Heidi Klum hosted).

Jane creative services director for special projects Linda Doyle came up with the idea for the party, secured the sponsors, and worked with Stoelt Productions to pull together the soiree for an expected crowd of 150 editors and Hollywood types (but we’re sure we saw at least double that number in the packed home). A gobo of Jane’s logo decorated the pool outside, where DJs Samantha Ronson and Franki Chan spun for guests. GoodFood passed hors d’oeuvres—like mozzarella and tomato skewers, goat cheese-stuffed twice-baked potatoes, and shrimp fritters—and bartenders mixed Absolut’s Ruby Red flavor into copious cocktails, distributed by female staffers in Absolut robes, for a we’re-as-cozy-here-as-if-this-were-our-own-fabulous-home feeling.

The party benefited Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, with celebrities like Klum donating frocks to the charity.
