MIDTOWN EAST—For many years, the Algonquin Hotel has been presided over by a dignified feline named Matilda. In terms of status and location, she's essentially New York's premiere kitty socialite, so it makes perfect sense that next Wednesday she's hosting a charity fashion show. From 5pm to 7:30pm, she'll be celebrating her 15th birthday with a runway show MC'd by John Fulton, host of a new Animal Planet’s series called “Must Love Cats." Admission is $25; to RSVP, call 212-419-9197 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. [Beauty News NYC]
SOHO—Not only is inventory being replenished at Alexander Wang's sample sale this weekend, but the team just emailed to tell us that they'll be reducing prices by 50% starting tomorrow. Happy shopping! [Racked Inbox]
