Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Veuve Clicquot Polo (85)

Nothing kicks off the summer better than Veuve Clicquot’s Polo Classic at Liberty State Park under a shining sun and star-studded spectator tent. With the pop of champagne ringing in your ear and the rumble of horses galloping by, you feel the earth tremble from the power and might of each play. I love these afternoons, so sweet with champagne, so lost in beautiful people’s laughter, with the skyline of New York City watching on…

Cheers ~

Hannah Bronfman

Josephine Baker (8)

Here is what I know about Hannah Bronfman: she is a restaurateur, DJ, entrepreneur, lives in Soho with her gorgeous boyfriend, wears a powerful last name and I loved shooting her. “What’s my inspiration for this shot?” It played out more like a mini-movie than a photoshoot.

I don’t think Hannah can breathe and not create in the space around her. She curated the sounds that filled the studio on this day, matching the beat to the mood of each shot. She talked about her newest creation, an iPhone app called Beautified which allows you to book last minute open spa appointments.

We weren’t going to the spa this day but we still beautified the room with Hannah in gold jewelry designer pieces brought over by LoveGold to take us to a glamorous dream world. The inspiration for this shoot was the golden era of Hollywood and the history-making Dorothy Dandridge…and who better to tell the story anew than someone making her own way in modern times and looking so good while doing it?

Danielle & Laura Kosann

Fashion Portrait (13)

Sisters. Businesswomen. Entrepreneurs. Manhattanites. The Kosann sisters are everything I love about young, smart women today. They can walk into a room, or in our case, our studio, and fill the air with conversations about their newly launched site, their inspiring mother, their favorite designers to wear and chef’s tables to dine at. We chatted endlessly about The New Potato, an online foodie destination the sisters launched this past May where they interview chefs, restaurateurs, celebrities, models, editors, personalities, you name it about something we all have in common – FOOD. Good food. All kinds of food.  My favorite feature of the site is the cityguide… curated by the people who know where to go. I think this is amazing and so useful!

They were on this day our muses.

Working with LoveGold we pulled amazing gold jewelry collections from designers like H Stern, Camilla Dietz Bergeron, Temple St. Clair and even their own mother, Monica Rich Kosann with her nostalgic jewelry designsHere is an intimate look at sisters carving a life into the new potato in black, white & GOLD.

CFDA Awards

For the past fifty years, the Council of Fashion Designers in America has held an awards show that has come to be called the “Fashion Oscars”. “This annual event is the one night we come together to celebrate our own,” said CFDA CEO Steven Kolb. And celebrate we do…

It’s a night of glamour, talent, and beauty but most of all it is a night of recognition – giving our applause and our thanks for the gorgeous creations made by fashion designers from established to up and coming.

There were many great moments in the night – listening to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joke around about her love of pantsuits, and then warmly describe Oscar de la Renta, winner of the night’s prestigious Founder’s Award, as a man whose “name evokes elegance and timeless beauty“. Catching my style icon, Carolina Herrera, being perfectly chic and lusting after her sensible evening shoes. Watching Vera Wang receive the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from her former mentor, Ralph Lauren, and seeing the beautiful friendship that exists between them… but don’t just take it from me, you can see all these moments and more on Style.com!

This industry is not an easy one, but it is certainly stunning. It’s wonderful to know that the hard working creatives behind these gowns I love to photograph so much and pieces we all admire are given accolades for their achievements in a glittering way only the fashion industry can do.
