The Word: Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian had a better start to their Labor Day than you did

Kris and Kim were welcomed to NYC in style on Wednesday.

Newlyweds Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries kicked off their Labor Day weekend in style at a huge soiree hosted by media guru Jason Binn and party planner extraordinaire Colin Cowie. Titled “A Night of Style & Glamour,” celebs like Tinsley Mortimer, Lance Bass, Kyle MacLachlan, La La Anthony, Greta van Susteren and Sonja Morgan gathered at the huge, gilded party space Capitale to celebrate on Wednesday night. “Everything she does is big and over the top. So who better than the two of us to get together and roll out a party welcoming her to New York?” Cowie told reporters while working the red carpet. “With that in mind, we bring great entertainment, beautiful people, fabulous cocktails, extraordinary food and a lot of surprises.” Here’s how East Coasters who weren’t invited (or couldn’t attend) the California wedding celebrated the couple:

“I just asked her about throwing a party in New York and they said that would be wonderful. So I called up Cowie and said we should do it. He was generous to donate his time and energy to create something I’ve never seen before.”
— Jason Binn, party co-host

“We’re coming out with a book and we’re giving it to Kim as a wedding present. You need to know how to cook to keep a man. We’ve been together for 13 years and we’re hoping to convince Kim to throw our wedding.” — Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge (aka: The Fabulous Beekman Boys) on their new cookbook, “The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook”

“Just enjoy it — the first two years are the best. Enjoy it, Kim! Take every moment with your man.” — Sonja Morgan’s advice for the bride
