What better way to open New York Fashion Week than an extravaganza at The Plaza? Just last Friday, Harper’s Bazaar threw the party of the year in honor of Carine Roitfeld’s icons – Kim and Kanye. This event was a who’s who of the fashion world -- models, designers and the like pulled out all the stops when it came to picking their outfit of choice for the evening. Not only were all of the guests dressed to impress, but the most chic of them all was the Grand Ballroom. Blacks and purples adorned the party – in lighting, florals, lounge furniture, and the signature black carpet.
The carpet was completely abuzz with celebrities including most of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Alessandra Ambrosio, Pamela Anderson, Kate Upton, Tommy Hilfiger and Dee Ocleppo, Emily Ratajkowski, just to name a few. The drinks were flowing and guests indulged in specialty cocktails by Belvedere Vodka and Stella Artois, splits of Moet Champagne, and Bertaud Belieu Rosé all evening.
Anyone who’s seen photos and video of one of Kanye’s recent performances knows that massive lighting structures are his décor of choice and at The Plaza this would be no different, especially after concerts at MSG in the same week. A roped off section in the front was reserved especially for the family members – I’ve never seen a crowd part the way it did for the Kardashians moving through the room for the performance.
As soon as Kanye was ready to perform, drinks and iPhones were in hand ready to snap photos and videos of the concert. This was my first time seeing him perform and he was amazing! He has so much energy when he gets on stage and it definitely radiates throughout the crowd. At one point, he even jumped off the stage to dance with Carine (a close up video was featured on Kim’s snapchat) and then ended the concert in true Kanye fashion – with a mic drop.
This event was truly an amazing evening, I can’t get enough of all the pictures online!
