Back before Misshapes and models were cluttering up DJ booths, there was Justine D.
, a DJ, event promoter, booker, and NYC-nightlife all-star. The former Justine Delaney of Queens threw the best parties, corralled the shiniest stars of local music, and set the stage for a whole generation of stylish and smart, self-promoting party girls. She was (and remains) the original. But party planning isn't all that D does these days. Surprisingly, she's transitioned over to a new passion, baking, and manages what might be the most colorful food blog ever
. Between the DJ booth and the kitchen, we caught up with Miss D. to talk about how she got her start, the effect laptops have had on her profession, and, of course, style.
