Party of the Century

Last night at Cipriani was WWD‘s 100th Anniversary party.  My invitation must have been lost in the mail.

There were amazing mini exhibitions set up all of the room and the cake was beyond impressive.

Here are some of my favorites that attended the star studded event.

2010 FNO

Scene: Fashion’s Night Out, New York City, September 10, 2010.

I really (really) wanted to see (meet, talk with, ogle) Daphne Guinness and Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, now none of that happened, I didn’t even get to catch a glimpse of any of their infamous crops of hair, but I still had a worthwhile time.

Admittedly, last year was more exciting, it was brand new and not nearly as crowded or corporate, but it is still an amazing opportunity to meet famous fashion folk that you might not ever get to see.

I first went to Bergdorf Goodman, and after standing in line for a while (read: cutting the line of a few hundred people) I made it inside only to find out I missed all the food and drinks, and Sarah Jessica Parker was scared to come out of the elevator because there were so many people.   I did, however, get to be about a foot away from (and smile at) Linda Fargo and Robert Verdi.

Linda Fargo has one of the most amazing jobs on the planet and I am supremely jealous of her.  She is Vice President of Visual Merchandising and Women’s Fashion Director at Bergdorf Goodman.  Her taste level and creativity is like none other.  And Robert Verdi, is a lovely eccentric stylist.

After that I went over to Barney’s, with the hope of bumping in to Daphne, but as we know that didn’t happen.  However, I was able to meet Simon Doonan (Creative Director of Barney’s and one of my favorite people on the planet) again.  We had a cute little photo shoot and then I went on my way up to the 5th floor where Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were supposed to be, but it was so crazy and not worth it in my mind so I left.  And according to Twitter they didn’t show up for like an hour.  I did get a picture of the Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington dolls though. . .

So, I started wandering around New York City without a plan, heading into stores I thought looked interesting, and I ended up having pretty good luck.  At Fratelli Rossetti, Behati Prinsloo (Victoria’s Secret model) was showing her photographs, which were actually really good.  I got a few pictures with her and a talked with a photographer for a while.

Then I went over to the Bergdorf Goodman Men’s Store where a ping pong, air hockey, and foosball table were set up where you could challenge famous designers to a match.  When I was there Henry Holland was facing off against Georgina Bloomberg (Mayor Bloomberg’s youngest daughter).

Then I went over to Prada, where I knew Grace Coddington was holding court, but of course she left right before I got there.  There was an amazing mannequin made up to look like her.  There were amazing mannequins everywhere, with wigs that must have been done by Julien d’Ys.  Oh yes, and the floor was fake grass, which was super fun to walk on in heels.  On the second floor Michael Urie (Mark on Ugly Betty) and Tessa Thompson were sitting on a bench completely undisturbed and deep in conversation.  Why no one swarmed them is beyond me.

I popped over to a much too crowded Versace where I just took a picture of the models and then headed over to Saks Fifth Ave where as I was walking through the door Anthony Williams from Project Runway was leaving with a camera crew.

So all in all I would say a pretty successful night.

(All photos were taken on the newest addition to my family, the iPhone 4, my digital camera died this summer, but hopefully I will get a new one soon so that I can show better quality photos!)

Meet Me at StyleSalt

This summer I was lucky enough to get an internship with a fashion website called StyleSalt.com.  Here you can find thousands of clothes all neatly sorted to your liking.  The website breaks it down by color, designer, and even which celebrity inspired it.

That’s where I come in.  I sort the clothing.  Something I happen to be very good at.  I also get to look at a pictures of celebrities (my two are Jennifer Aniston and Katie Holmes) and find clothing similar to what they are wearing, but at a better price of course.

So say you wanted to dress like Ashley Olsen or Angelina Jolie, you can just pop on over to the website click on their name and up comes hundreds of outfits to chose from.

What is also great about the website, and the internship for that matter, is that there are fashion blogs on it as well.  And I get to write some of them.  With a byline and everything.

Yesterday my first blog was posted on StyleSalt, and I just want it to be known that I am not cheating on my WordPress I am simply expanding my blogging horizons.

So here is the link to my first published blog:  http://www.stylesalt.com/blog/219/cream-of-the-crop-tops
