This month’s guests are royalty in our eyes.

We at Perfect Party HQ don’t know about you, but simply cannot resist the charms of Jonathan Van Ness, the delightful Queer Eye grooming expert who’s just released a new memoir, Over the Top, and who’s bringing his Road to Beijing tour through Houston this month (Dec. 7 at Revention). He’ll no doubt be starstruck by Lynn Wyatt, Houston’s ageless society queen, who is donating $10 million for a badly needed makeover of Jones Plaza, to be renamed the Lynn Wyatt Square for the Performing Arts. Also on the invite list: Garrett Bradley, the New Orleans–based artist and filmmaker getting her first solo show at the CAMH, opening Dec. 19Bill Balleza, the beloved KPRC 2 news anchor who’s set to retire next month after a stellar five-decade career; Emma Doineau, the Locke Lord attorney who recently was honored by Houston Volunteer Lawyers for her pro bono work; and, finally, Jose Longoria, the mariachi musician and teacher who’s signed on as director of the Mariachi Pumas, the new ensemble at UH.
