The beautiful people congregate in the fabulous places, paying cover charges and sipping bitter Fernet. A silent contract signed in Montblanc between people and place demands vocal adoration from both. Enforceable in the court of the fabulous, breach will be costly. The beautiful ones don't mind paying. They are right where they should be. You should be there, too.
