The annual Legends of La Cienega kick off party for the La Cienega Design Quarter took place this past week. The gala was held in the beautiful Therien showroom on La Cienega Blvd which features an amazing indoor / outdoor setting comprised of interior gallery spaces and outdoor courtyards. 1st Dibs and Coldwell Banker Previews hosted the event.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 16th Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, CA. The event happens to be produced by a high school friend of mine who works for Jumpline, producers of the annual awards show.

image

On display and on loan from a costume house, were Dorothy’s red heels from the Wizard Of Oz – so neat to see in person! (And apparently my friend Deme had these on her coffee table before returning – ha!)

image

We were fortunate to have access to the VIP reception (celeb hangout), and I happen to catch actress Amy Adams in a flash.

image

Typhanie and I had fun taking selfies in the glamorous old school mirrors at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the event took place.

image

We also saw Mad Men actress, Kiernan Brennan Shipka, mingling before the awards ceremony.

The next day, I attended a post event brunch and panel discussion with several of the recognized and awarded costume designers.

image

The event was hosted by Lacoste.

image

On display were fashion designs by FIDM students representing various film genres.

image

After the symposium was a rooftop brunch (at Siren Studios) with views of Hollywood.

And a very fun surprise: seeing our friend artist Gregory Siff art on the ground level entrance of Siren Studios.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.

Nespresso recently opened their first ever flagship store here in Los Angeles, a boutique on Beverly Drive. With locations in both NYC and San Francisco, it was great to welcome a retail space here in LA. I happen to be a huge fan on Nespresso (as my Instagram and Twitter followers may know) and was excited when I received an invite to the exclusive launch party.

image

The new concept store features a slightly different vibe than previous stores. Contemporary furnishings with lighter finishes, such as the flooring, are all part of the new direction. The Beverly Hills location features a lounge area, an espresso bar for ordering drinks and food, and a retail space for purchases.

image

Nespresso welcomes tastings, a bar set up with machines is the perfect spot to come in and sample while browsing the assortment of products.

image

The colorful array of capsules are eye-catching (& make for a great display!).

image

At the opening night party I got to experience the great indoor / outdoor feel of the open space – perfect for Southern California weather!

image

The launch party was a packed crowd complete with performances by David Foster and American Idol alum Michael Johns. Along with¬†Tim Gunn, who we had the pleasure of meeting, hosted the night’s event.

image

If you happen to be in Beverly Hills, be sure to check out the new Nespresso Boutique at 320 N Beverly Drive.
