ELLE’s 25th Anniversary Celebration

Twenty-fifth seems to be the mega milestone of 2010 with ELLE magazine and White House/Black Market celebrating their anniversary last night at MoMa. ELLE also commemorated the launch of its new styling book The ELLEments of Personal Style featuring 25 fashion icons discussing their tips on how to dress, shop and live.

The night was an amusing party with key fashion industry players in attendance, drinking and feasting on delicious hor d’oeuvres while dressed in dashing fashion styles. Featured ELLEment’s icons Estelle graced the audience with a short but high-energy performance. Notable guests included Zac Posen, Christian Siriano, Shontelle and ELLEment icons Fatima Robinson, Diane von Furstenberg and Padma Lakshmi (to name a few). Also on deck, my favorite ELLE magazine staffer, Olivia Palermo, who was beyond fashionably late, strolling in 30mins before the end of the event.

ELLE magazine and White House/Black Market share a commonalty of promoting individual style, femininity and beauty for all women. As an ELLE employee put it “its not about expensive items but bringing your own unique style to pieces” and that was the theme for the night. As you would image, everyone was dapperly dressed. Accessory highlight for the night: shoes, shoes, and shoes! In the words of Rachel Zoe “I literally died” when I saw the Fendishire boots on the label’s event coordinator who was fashionably dressed head to toe in Fendi. The polka dots ensemble on guest Reece was chicest of the night.

My side note: shee-shee foo-foo aaoo the industry types...I yawn and I gag. Good times!!! Oh and I don't agree with Estelle being labeled an icon of style...booo. Maybe they gave her that title so she would perform for free LMAO!!
