We are still spinning from an amazing evening in NYC Janie was dying to dish the details so here it goes!
We did it!!!! We turned NYC into a big pink print party. The museum was a buzz with celebs (Clare Danes! RUFUS from gossip girl…so many more but I am slightly bad with names!) and Lilly Lovers – I am not sure they have recovered…I sure haven’t!!!!!
I the night started walking up the steps of the Museum of Natural History. There were men and women wearing Lilly sprinkled all over, walking from across Central Park, getting dropped off in taxi’s or cars…they were everywhere!
Once I walked in I went through a ton, ton, ton of photographers with their flash bulbs popping. Amazing. All the press was there!!!!!
Next to the bar the print team – dressed to the nines I may add – was painting all different sized canvases. Insane. People were is awe! Jeff did shells, Paige and Torie worked on a large canvas together of flowers. Stacey and Reba had smaller exquisite paintings. All breathtaking and auctioned off to raise funds for the museum!
Ok, ok, ok. So exciting to re-live. Dinner! Literally 600 people dressed in their Lilly best descended the stairs to the Hall of Ocean Life. We dined on fish (hmmmm, ironic but yummy!) Under an 80 ft whale. All of the tables were aaaamazing, but mine! SO FUN. Filled with friends (love you Jules and Errett), editors (Vogue! Harper’s!) , creative directors from other fashion houses (Richard from Michael Kors!). It was a hoot!!!!
After dinner?!? The stampede continued back up the stairs to the Hall of African Animals. I saw Veronica Webb carrying the table centerpiece (a hippo topiary!) Up the stairs to bring home! We walked in and….aaaaamazing music! Everyone dancing. The black eyed peas I my fav! Special PINK LILLY’s (cocktails) that made sure everyone was a able to get down.
More dancing. More giggles. More chatting. More (many more) pink lilly’s. Was it midnight already?!?! As I descended the stairs out of the museum I had a smile ear to ear. Life is good. New york loves lilly. Lilly loves to party!
