After the BRIDES magazine event, I raced downtown with my company President, Mario Grauso, to present my dear friend and business partner, Bernd Beetz (Chief Executive of Coty) his award as an ‘Angel’ for the DKMS Leukemia Foundation. The downtown Cipriani is rather an extraordinary space architectually and historically… in the heart of Wall Street. 500 ladies in true black tie, ie LONG… 2nd time this week… (Sir Elton John’s event was earlier in the week). Very glam but nerve wracking since I hadn’t rehearsed on the teleprompter!!! But the best part was listening to Josh Grobin who has such an amazing voice, delivered with such boyish charm. Wanted to stay and dance, but a workday calls… a huge photoshoot for our new ad campaign tomorrow!
Oh by the way… I wore a fringed sleeveless wool vest from my RTW line, my Margiela couture silk leggings…and one of my vintage floral necklaces! A new first even for me. A full on evening legging look! xx Vera
