The Urban Zen Stephan Weiss Apple Awards at the Urban Zen Center THE PARTY In memory of her late husband, Donna Karan honored three high-profile do-gooders at her foundation’s Eastern-inflected West Village space: Dr. Mehmet Oz, education philanthropist Courtney Ross and perennial man-on-a-mission Bill Clinton, who was (naturally) the evening’s keynote speaker. THE PLAYERS Keith Richards, Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro were three of Karan’s many bold-faced friends to swing through the cinnamon- scented Urban Zen shop, where they joined the likes of Uma Thurman, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher and Wyclef Jean for a dinner of vegetarian sushi and penne pasta. OVERHEARD “If [a Zen state] happens, it’s simply miraculous, and I enjoy it. But with three children, it’s virtually impossible.” -Sarah Jessica Parker
