But on the same day, top party planner Bronson van Wyck — whose client list has included Beyoncé, Madonna, Calvin Klein, Gwyneth Paltrow and three US presidents — is putting together perhaps the party of the summer, to celebrate his birthday in Mykonos, Greece, which an invitation describes as a “Homeric Ball.”
Page Six reported that Shaffer recently held her bachelorette party in Tulum, Mexico, with pals including Selby Drummond, Sara Moonves and Nell Diamond. According to the couple’s registry online, they are still in need of a few items, including an eight-inch chef’s knife for $259.95.
At the same time, van Wyck’s bash requires costumes in the categories of “Greeks & Trojans,” “Amazons & Argives,” “Mad Max Maenads” or simply . . . “Birthday Suits.”
A video invitation for the sure-to-be-over-the-top fête urges guests to “reveal yourself” and “be epic,” along with a mashup of clips from mythical movies including “Clash of the Titans,” “Wonder Woman,” the Brad Pitt film “Troy” and “300.” Also suggested in an e-mail to guests were “beach reads” including not-so-light fare “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey.”
