The Best Parties You've Never Been Invited To

Halloween is just a few weeks away—and following all those discarded "sexy kitten" costumes will be the holiday party season. We're guessing a few of you have already started planning your own end-of-year parties. Well, I hate to break it to you, but no party you could plan can top any of those featured in BALS: Legendary Costume Balls of the Twentieth Century. Prepare to have serious RAFOMO (RetroActive Fear of Missing Out) because the moment you open the book, you'll be salivating over the food, the drinks, the people and the scene. I take my reveling very seriously, so you can trust me on this one.

But who knows—perhaps this book will give you just the inspiration you need for your own Halloween or holiday fiesta. There's always hope that you could make Assouline's next edition. But you'll probably need to spend at least $150,000 to get there. Just sayin'.

Take a quick look at how the upper echelon of society likes to get down in the slideshow, then buy the book.
