penthouses, fine art and impromptu photo shoots…
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.
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!
Here 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 may be able to make the city dance, but they aint letting her drink!
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.
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 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 Dylan, Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Carly 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. those cheek bones could cut through ice
