Celebrating Earth Month with Origins and Train


wednesday night was a spectacular evening spent with Origins, Train and a bunch of earth conscious celebs who had some really great ideas of how to live a greener and more sustainable life.

in the press box i was joined by the adorable Jessica Lapidos, Fashion Editor over at Fashion Indie — i loooove her bold mix of prints and color.

there was also Glambassador Stephanie Mattera who’s pretty shoulder detail dress is one of those great staple pieces that can  go from day to evening seamlessly

so while we were all playing with each others clothes the celebs started making their way in … the chaps from Treetop Flyers poped in from across the pond to support the event — and they were nice enough to stay and perform too!

Treetop FlyersTreetop Flyers and Jane LauderHere Jane Lauder, Global President & General Manager of Origins poses for photos with the band.  As the head Origins, Jane has worked incredibly hard to keep her company ahead of the curve when it comes to sustainability. She’s planting trees, recycling tons of used makeup containers, and continuing to ensure Origins is completely natural.

she also looks incredibly chic in a color blocked silk tank and massive stone necklace

next up, babykins Kelli Tomashoff who’s first single, “Gave Up On Love” just dropped and is already at #4 on the Billboard Dance Charts!

she may be able to make the city dance, but they aint letting her drink!

Kelli Tomashoff and Dalal Bruchmann

Kelli  arrived with fellow partner in crime and pop force to be reckoned with, Dalal Bruchmann, who beyond being completely adorbs, told me about her work with wildlife charities as well as growing up as a classically trained musician in Austria.  these two were totally a few of my favorite things.Dalal BruchmannDalal BruchmannDalal Bruchmann

MC for the evening Jeff Miles, from radio station 95.5 PLJ, looks great in a classic oxford and flat front jean/trouser — sloppy men, please take note.
he also told us how moving to NYC from Dallas has made his carbon footprint reduce in size drastically due to no longer needing a car.  yay public transport!

Nikki Jean

Nikki Jean graced the green carpet before running back stage to get ready to perform.  before she scooted, we talked sustainability, her new album, and youtube.  As someone who’s been on tour for the last few years, living in a world of quick and disposable, Nikki has outfitted her tour bus with a drinking water tank, eliminating the need for all those bottles of water.  As for the new album, recording took her around the country to write with some of the greatest living songwriters like Bob DylanCarole KingBurt BacharachCarly Simon to name a few.  But big names are not a new thing in Nikki’s life, she’s already been on tour with Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco, the latter of whom helped her get her start.  Nikki JeanNikki Jeanthose cheek bones could cut through ice

next Train came running through — for a bunch of guys who live on tour, they were some of the happiest and energetic musicians i’ve met.  And when i asked them how it felt to to play sold out stadium shows, they told me “We couldn’t be more grateful for our success, it’s been a wild ride.”

when the lights came down and Train came on, i was not sure what to be in store for, and i will tell you right now — THESE MEN CAN PERFORM.  bounding across the stage and belting out lyrics, Train had the entire audience dancing and smiling, until Pat Monahan put down the microphone and started singing acapella, his voice reaching the way backs of Webster Hall;  then we were just blown away.
