Fashion Group International Rising Star Event Cipriani New York

Oh today has been such a lovely day, I was in such a mess this morning I could not control myself with excitement. I was off to the most amazing place in New York, Cipriani on 42nd Street. It used to be a bank and it is absolutely gorg inside and so many of the bank features have been left in plaace. Anyway I am moving away from the story. I got up super early as I knew I would be amongst some of the fashionistas of the world today and needed to look my best, actually 300 of them so I needed to look great, well as great as I can look anyway judge for yourself. I spent as little time as needed on hair and make up but the biggest dilema was the out fit. I could not decide on Michael Kors or Calvin Klein or Theory I went for the safe bet and wore the LBD which had the loveliest bottom frill which you cannot see in the piccie below, but it looked great and the jacket was a big hit from Calvin Klein. Of course the shoes and handbag were easy to choose and the handbag is one of our concept bags, which a few people asked where they could buy one!

Cipriani was just so gorg, the ceiling is so high and full of character, never let anyone tell you the American’s have no history.The building was just full of it, in fact if i did not know better I would have said I was in London or Venice or Rome.

Ever fashionista was there and I had a lovely time, I met with some really nice people and I look forward to catching up with them in the coming weeks ahead. The lunch was so scrummy, I had Chilean Sea Bass (not sure if that is how it is spelt) but is was delicious and unfortunately I only ate the topping of the Lemon Pie as it had a pastry case bottom and of course you know I don’t eat carbs on this diet so that had to be left. Promise you all, I did leave it, but I did not leave the glass of wine sorry !

The awards went without a hitch and their were some real Rising Stars who won the awards. Will be here with piccies tomorrow. There were lots of Papps there and everyone was well photographed
