The Palm Beach Post: the PETA bash
Also on hand: Broadway's Alan Cumming, wearing an orange plaid kilt to match his Scottish brogue;
James Cromwell, the Six Feet Under actor who once costarred with a pig in Babe; Tim Gunn, chair of the department of fashion design at Parsons School of Design and a regular on Bravo's Project Runway; and Nanci Alexander, co-owner of Fort Lauderdale's Sublime restaurant and president of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF). Sipping a smoked pear martini, Alexander said she flew to New York just for the PETA party.

[editor's note: uh... smoked pear martini? this is just cruel to humans and pears]

Actor ALAN CUMMING was stunned to be criticised by a US magazine for wearing a skirt, when in fact he was wearing his national dress - a kilt.

The Scottish X2 star can't understand why Americans are so shocked when they see him walking the streets in the tartan garment

He says, "On the internet recently I was on People magazine's worst-dressed list for the Ugliest Skirt Of The Year. They didn't even call it a kilt.

"I wore a kilt recently, a denim one. You'd have thought I was wearing a pair of panties or I was in a bikini, the shock and awe it caused."
