The 61st Viennese Opera Ball at the Waldorf Hotel


I had the grand pleasure of covering the 61st Viennese Opera Ball at the Waldorf Hotel in New York. The words “Viennese Opera Ball” have long been synonymous with international glamour, romantic elegance and prestige. The earliest Viennese Opera Balls can be traced to the late 18th century and reached their zenith in the brilliant balls and receptions held during the 1814 Congress of Vienna. They were commemorated in history with the observation that “The Congress didn’t sit, it danced.” 


The Austrian court hosted international leaders and crowned heads of state at Viennese Opera Balls. In 1854, the young Emperor Franz Joseph decreed that Vienna, the seat of his court, would be newly laid out; he added the proviso: “…the new opera house should be used for the performance of operas and ballets as well as for the celebrations of opera balls..” 


Until the early 19th century, the waltz, a dance in which the partners touch and swirl together- was considered too erotic and exciting to include in events where propriety was in order. But when the great composer and orchestra director Johann Strauss was named Dance Music Director of the Imperior Court in 1835, the waltz received formal approval as an official dance in Vienna. 


Johann Strauss went on to compose over 150 waltzes and did concert tours with his orchestra, introducing Viennese music to Europe. His son, Johann Strauss, Jr. became known as the “Waltz King,” as he wrote over 400 waltzes, including “Tales of the Vienna Woods,” Songs of Spring, and “Emperor Waltz.” 


The waltz and the Viennese Opera all became an important Austrian Cultural phenomenon. Over time, the concept of the ball was refined to ensure that the ambiance remained true to the tradition. Thus, in 1877, the first of the “court opera soirees” (known as the “Hofopern- Soireen”) was staged. The Strauss orchestra performed under the direction of Edward Strauss (Johann, Jr.’s younger brother). 


Today, the Viennese Opera Ball remains an international social landmark. The February 28, 2016, Ball in New York marked the 61st consecutive Viennese Opera Ball held under the auspices of the U.S.-Austrian Chamber of Commerce. It has become the perfect way for transplanted Austrians to celebrate their culture with their many international friends. This year’s charity beneficiaries included: Ronald McDonald House of New York and New York Rotary Foundation. To learn more visit: vienneseoperaball.us

150th Anniversary Harvard Gala


I had the absolute pleasure of attending Harvard’s 150th annual dinner gala at the historic Harvard Club in New York City. It was a surreal, magical experience that is hard to put into words, but I’m certainly going to try… 

Like with all fairytales, it includes a ball gown, dapper date and an evening with all the decadence befitting the Ivy League elite.  

I wore a brilliant off the shoulder floral jacquard high-low ball gown by Cynthia Rowley for this momentous occasion. I’ll never forget walking into the Harvard Club main room and hearing the audible comments about my gown. I felt like Cinderella in every sense of the word, and it was thrilling to know that I had chosen the right gown. 

Adam Kaplan, a Harvard grad that I had met a few days earlier through mutual friends had invited me to the Harvard gala. Adam was equally well dressed in his black and white suit, bow tie and matching pocket square. We looked like the King and Queen of the Harvard gala that evening. 

The Harvard Club of New York, the city’s most exclusive private club, is located in the heart of midtown Manhattan. Opened in 1894, the original three-story Neo-Georgian landmark preserves Harvard’s traditions and timeless legacy.

New Year New Hair: Blonde Ombre Makeover At Christo Salon Fifth Avenue

Celebrity Stylist Ivan Torres and me
New Year new hair! I was so excited to get an ombre hair makeover at the famous Christo Salon on Fifth Avenue.
For the past few years I’ve been dreaming of getting this done, but couldn’t quite do it because my hair was not long enough to achieve the look that I wanted. When I first met Christo at his Birthday/Holiday party a few weeks ago I knew that I wanted to get my hair done at his salon. Aside from being one of the nicest, most welcoming people I’ve ever met, I was also incredibly in awe of his decadent salon from the plush leather waiting coaches to the enchanting chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The ambience was the epitome of Hollywood glamour, and I couldn't wait to treat myself to the experience.
Just a few days before the New Year I emailed Christo to see if there were any appointments open in the near future, and to my luck there had been an opening a day after the new year! I was so excited to find out that Celebrity stylist Ivan Torres was going to be doing my hair that day. Ivan was the incredible stylist who created the black swan inspired updo for me when I attended New York Fashion Week a few months ago in September. The paparazzi absolutely loved that look, and now I couldn’t have been more thrilled to have Ivan create an ombre masterpiece for me.

Christo's Birthday/Holiday Party At His Glamorous Fifth Avenue Salon


I had the absolute pleasure of attending Christo’s Birthday/Holiday party at his namesake salon, Christo Fifth Avenue. It was certainly a fête fit for a star and with all the trimmings! (Pun intended.) 

The evening included decadent guests in formal attire, open bar, hors d’oeuvres, music by DJ Angelo and gambling.

Christo is one of the most extraordinary people that I’ve ever met. Dubbed “The King of Curls” by The Wall Street Journal and Women’s Wear Daily, Christo approaches curly hair with revolutionary Diametrix cutting and styling technique. His philosophy centers on healthy, gorgeous hair, and his luxurious line of Curlisto® products focuses first and foremost on nourishing hair with ingredients that specifically remedy curly hair challenges.

His styling has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, The Associated Press, American Salon, Modern Salon, Glamour Magazine, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Family Circle and countless more. Christo has been featured as hair expert for many news segments including PIX11, ABC, CBS, FOX 5, and Telemundo. Christo was also invited to transform hair color and style for TLC’s “Date Patrol,” HBO’s “Fit Club,” Bravo’s “Guide to Style” and Reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson from “Kendra On Top.”

Christo works closely with top designers for major fashion events, including New York and San Francisco Fashion Week, the Latin Grammy and Billboard Awards, Tribeca Film Festival, and the Sundance Film Festival to name a few.

Over the past 20 years, Christo has styled and recommended products for many V.I.Ps and celebrities such as Princess Lalla of Morocco, the First Ladies of Cyprus, Colombia, and Mexico, as well as Nia Long, Kelly Preston, Jamie Shimizu, Melanie Brown from the Spice Girls, Adrienne Bailon, Matthew Modine, and Marcia Gay Harden.

Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin's New Jewelry Collection 'Homage', Inspired by America's Royal Family


Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin hosted a launch party for her new jewelry collection called “Homage” with the support of friends including Avenue's Randi Schatz, Tracy Stern, Cassandra Seidenfeld, Nicole Noonan and Lindsay Stokes from TOWN ResidentialI unfortunately had a scheduling conflict the evening of the launch party but was thrilled to receive a post recap from Consuelo's PR team.

I’ve considered Consuelo the epitome of style and grace ever since we met two years ago at the Raine Magazine soiree at the Pierre hotel. With a lineage of a Vanderbilt it’s quite natural that Consuelo launched her own collection of socialite worthy jewels. 

The dazzling new line was inspired by the jewelry worn by five generations of Vanderbilt's, one of America's Royal Families. Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin developed a range of pearl and diamond fashion jewelry that is exclusively sold at HSN. A direct descendent of railroad tycoon, Cornelius Vanderbilt and Consuelo Vanderbilt, the Duchess of Marlborough, Consuelo appeared on air on December 21st to tell the historic and romantic stories behind the pieces.

The luxurious and sophisticated 24-piece collection was created after Consuelo inherited an engagement ring from her great-grandmother, Consuelo Vanderbilt Earl, which according to family lore belonged to the Duchess of Marlborough. That ring was the catalyst to the creation of the personally crafted ‘Homage” collection. The range includes pieces that reflect the historic jewelry worn by her family, and the contemporary reflections of styles Consuelo wore during important moments in her own life.
  
Consuelo, a lifestyle entrepreneur, is cousin to Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper, and has had a successful career as a Billboard Recording Artist. In several pieces, you see an edgier design reflective of her personal style. The Tempest Ring and Cuff features a 'diamond' pave pattern in a zigzag style. The Society Earrings feature clusters of white pearls and was worn by Consuelo in her latest music video that was filmed at The Vanderbilt Museum in Long Island, the former home of her great, great grandfather, Willie K. Vanderbilt Jr.

Ranging in price from $29.95 to $199.95 the collection is now available on HSN.com

Congratulations Consuelo on your stunning new jewelry collection. Hope to see you again soon! xx

Check out exclusive pictures from the launch party as well as a few shots of my favorite pieces below!

My Incredibly Epic Selfie Themed Birthday Party!


My 29th Birthday was quite literally the best Birthday I’ve had so far. Split into two parts, the first included a nice sit down dinner with my family at my favorite restaurant. My best friend Robyn coordinated the second part of my Birthday which she hysterically themed “Selfie” because of my insatiable knack to take every possible kind of selfie picture. 

For the second part of my Birthday I wore the above THEIA ivory beaded art nouveau cocktail dress, which I chose because it reminded me of something Daisy from the Great Gatsby would wear. 

My incredibly sweet friends coordinated such a thoughtful evening full of surprises for me that I can’t wait to tell you about the rest of this story. It made me realize just how lucky I am to have them in my life. This past year hasn’t been the easiest, but they’ve stood by my side through everything. Celebrating my Birthday with almost every single person I love meant the world to me, and was in itself the best Birthday gift I could possibly ask for.

Bulova x InStyle Party At The Empire State Building



InStyle Magazine hosted an influencer event at Bulova’s showroom in the Empire State Building to celebrate their collaboration with renowned graphic artist Christopher Lee Sauvee for the company's Diamond Watch Collection for ladies. 

It was an intimate event, with a fun-filled evening of cocktails and personal styling sessions courtesy of InStyle's Executive Style Correspondent, Dana Avidan Cohn.

I was thrilled to join InStyle and fellow influencers at the iconic Empire State Building for an exclusive celebration of Bulova’s partnership and new collection.

My look for the evening was a black feather Cynthia Rowley dress. It probably wasn’t the smartest idea to wear a feather dress in the pouring rain, but somehow I managed to pull it off!

H.U.G. 60th Anniversary Diamond Themed Gala With JCPenney, Hanesbrands & Intimate Apparel Square Club


Members and supporters of the prestigious Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC), the New York-based charity known for supporting pediatric treatment and rehabilitation, celebrated their 60th Anniversary with a diamond themed fête at the luxurious 230 Fifth in Manhattan. 

The “Who’s Who” of the intimates industry honored Hanesbrands and JCPenney in addition to presenting a Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Joan Gold.

Top apparel industry executives from the retail, manufacturing and supply sectors reunited to raise funds for Rusk Rehabilitation's pediatric programs and other children's services at NYU Langone Medical Center. 

I wore a THEIA jacquard ball gown with strapless crepe bodice and patent belt for the occasion. As with any THEIA gown, the moment I put it on I felt like a Princess. In fact, inspired by the Greek Goddess THEIA, this evening wear, bridal and day dress collection was created to bring out every woman’s inner goddess. One of the original Titans, THEIA who ruled during the Greek Golden Age, possessed the incredible power of light which radiated from her sparkling eyes.  

Established in 1955, The Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Club’s annual fundraiser, which was renamed the H.U.G. (Help Us Give) Gala in 1998, honors well-respected, high-profile companies and individuals, and has generated more than $6 million in support of Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Medical Center.

To date, the H.U.G. Gala has raised more than $6 million for Rusk pediatric rehabilitation and Tisch Hospital programs.

William Banks-Blaney’s Launch Party For His New Book: Iconic Dresses: 25 Moments in Twentieth-century Fashion


I had the absolute pleasure of attending William Banks-Blaney’s launch party for his new book: Iconic Dresses: 25 Moments in Twentieth-century Fashion. The event was held at the Jonathan Adler store in Soho. 

Who better to help celebrate such a fashion icon than Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan?! I was so excited to join both of these legends in honor of William’s historic new book. 

The book begins with a lovely foreword by Rachel Zoe, as she describes how she first met William when he invited her to a private appointment at his store in London. She continues to describe William's brilliant work. "William possesses an insurmountable knowledge of vintage. He is truly an encyclopedia of couture."- Rachel Zoe

In this book, through his selection and description of 25 iconic vintage dresses, William Banks-Blaney tells the history of twentieth-century couture, the fashion designers who created the dresses and the women who wore them. It threads together what was happening socially, culturally, politically at the time and how it influenced designers including Fortuny, Chanel, Dior, Courreges, and Halston.

Woosh Beauty Launch Party With Bobbie Thomas at HSN


I was so excited to spend the evening at the HSN hq to celebrate Bobbie Thomas’s new collection of makeup called Woosh Beauty. 

“TODAY” show style expert Bobbie Thomas teamed up with her best friend Andrea DeVos Abraham to launch Woosh Beauty by ProGirl via HSN later this month. Bobbie's first appearance on the channel is Oct. 30th, with a returning appearance in December. 

Bobbie Thomas has done it all, but at the end of day, just considers herself a professional girlfriend, relatable resource with years of experience helping women navigate everything from makeup to breakups.

She has devoted her career to testing, trying, researching, and reporting on the tips, tools, and trends that real women can use. 

In 2013, Bobbie partnered with close friend and co-founder, Andrea DeVos Abraham, to found ProGirl, a brand aimed at providing support and solutions to women. Their first product line, Woosh Beauty is entirely comprised of innovated/ or elevated beauty tools that they always wished existed but didn’t. So they made them themselves.

THEIA Fall 2016 Bridal: 1920's Opium Den


For Fall 2016, the THEIA bride walks a dark and dreamy pathway seen through the foggy haze of a 1920’s Opium Den. Inhibitions disappear and endless possibilities for her wedding gown shimmer in front of her eyes. 

This woman is free to re-define what marriage means to her… she decides... she chooses… and at THEIA she will find just the dress for her unique celebration. She may wear a sensuous sleek bias satin gown like ivory puffs of smoke undulating in the air... 

Clouds of Spanish tulle cinched with diamonds. She may tattoo Geisha’s on her naked body, or crush blood red poppies, their rich color soaked up by luscious silks and embroideries, their potent black seeds slick satin with an ebony gloss. Fearless and empowered by her femininity, this bride walks where others fear to follow.

I was completely blown away by THEIA's designer Don O'Neill and his dreamy new Fall 2016 bridal collection. He infused every bit of 1920s glamour and mystery into his bridal gowns. One of my favorite pieces was the above Artic white faux fur chubby over hand embroidered diamond sequin slip dress. 

Each gown would be a perfect look for brides who are looking for that certain unconventional je ne sais quoi for their big day.

THEIA Spring 2016 Collection Preview: Inspired by The Opulent Alhambra Palace in Spain


My friends at THEIA invited me to preview their newest Spring 2016 collection right after New York Fashion Week. Every season I’m incredibly excited to see what Don O'Neill, THEIA’s exceptionally talented designer has in store for the season ahead. 

For Spring 2016, Don was inspired by the grand Alhambra Palace in Spain.
The Alhambra got its name because of its reddish walls (in Arabic Alhambra means Red Castle).  

The tile work in the palace is represented in the beautiful embroideries of the jewels dresses. Primary colors included rich ivories, beige and opulent hues of blue.

New York Fashion Week Diary Day 4 cont.: Art Hearts Fashion Gala + Dinner at Lavo


The rest of my day 4 of New York Fashion Week was spent at the Art Hearts Fashion Gala midtown, followed by a nice dinner at Lavo restaurant on the Upper East Side. 

I wore a THEIA Spring 2014 sequin cocktail dress for my last look of fashion week. It was an absolutely stunning piece that sparkled 10x more in person with white and black sequins.

My hair was done earlier that day at the Angela Roi event, and it was the perfect match to my more formal evening look.

New York Fashion Week Diary Day 4: Angela Roi Soiree at Bene Rialto


During day 4 of New York Fashion Week I spent the afternoon at Bene Rialto, a lovely shop in the Garment District for emerging designers. Bene Rialto hosted a NYFW party for Angela Roi, one of the brands that’s currently sold at the store. 

Guests were invited to enjoy a glamorous afternoon of fashion, cocktails and cupcakes. In addition, special services like an in-house beauty bar with nail and beauty treatments were provided.

I wore a Cynthia Rowley print scuba dress for the event. It was the perfect look for a Summer fashion party with its striking blue and white pattern. In fact it reminded me a bit of a pattern that you would typically see on a fancy China dinner plate.  

New York Fashion Week Diary Day 3: Chris Ber'Y, Anthony Rubio, Marco Marco Spring 2016 Fashion Shows + Meeting Lance Bass!


It’s always an unpredictable, exciting adventure when I attend New York Fashion Week and day 3 certainly made for another chapter in my book of epic stories.

My friends always joke that no one would ever believe half the things that happen to me so writing about my Fashion Week experience is always quite entertaining.

I wore a THEIA Spring 2015 silver/gold dress for my shows that evening. The dress was a perfect fit, and I absolutely loved the incredibly chic design. The juxtaposition of blue and gold patterns really made this look stand out. In addition its cut out front was the perfect touch of sexy, yet classic.

New York Fashion Week Diary Day 2: Pink Swan Makeover at Caravan Stylist Studio + Zang Toi Spring 2016 Fashion Show!


Day 2 of New York Fashion Week was probably one of my favorites for so many reasons! The first being that I was invited to see my friend and designer Zang Toi’s fashion show that day. I look forward to Zang’s show each season as he’s one of the most innovative, brilliant and indescribably talented designers I know! 

The second reason was that I had a chance to wear a THEIA custom pink dress with feathers straight off their runway! The dress was invaluable and of course I needed the right hair and makeup to complete the look. I was so lucky that the Caravan Stylist Studio team could squeeze me in for a last minute makeover. The look they created for me was nothing short of brilliant as they molded me into the ‘Pink Swan’ for New York Fashion Week.
