ACE Awards 2010

This has certainly been a week, last night I was invited by the Accessories Council of New York to attend the ACE Awards for 2010 and I was in such great company, from Tiffanys & Co to Cole Haan and Macy’s. The stars in the fashion world came out to play. I spent all day with my Glam Squad, aka Gregg Hubbard the famous New York Make up artist to stars such as Tory Burch and the Celebrity Apprentice. and my hairdresser Monique came to give me the best blow out ever.

I was totally honored to be wearing a very expensive piece of jewelry by Judith Leiber, who very kindly loaned me the necklace in the picture. The event was held at Cipriani’s on 42nd Street, believe it or not this used to be the home of a bank. It is a really stunning venue I have to say I so love going there, my only drawback is that the Internet service is limited. The food was super, I had scallops with asparagus followed by lamb cutlets which were like butter. I gave the desert a miss as I am not keen on Lemon meringue pie so I saved myself for the Godiva chocolates.

Before the awards ceremony started I was lucky enough to be photographed with a super guy, Kanye West, I have to say in all honesty that he was really a kind and gentle man, I may be a bit bias as he said I looked beautiful. When he accepted his award he spoke from the heart accepted that he was not perfect ,that he had made some mistakes but that he was just a regular guy. I would not agree, he is a very special person and deserved the award for Style.

I also met Maria Sharapova, who I would like to say forgot to smile in this picture, I guess that is her prerogative, so let’s just say she is very tall !

Everybody went home with a goodie bag full of luxurious things, I was totally exhausted so when I finally managed to find my driver, I threw off my Gianfranco Ferre shoes in the car, snuggled on the warm back seat until I got home to my lovely izzi. I am hoping that the parties this week are at an end and I now look forward to a quiet evening at home in my PJ’s…. oh except tomorrow as it is my wedding anniversary…. Get Gregg on the phone…
