Thursday Evening

My Personal Photo


In the midst of a busy autumn, this little invitation arrived on my desk. Over the past month, there have been few moments where I’ve been able to untether myself from work. The launch party for Vogue’s The Editor’s Eye was the perfect excuse to throw on one of my Yves Saint Laurent cocktail dresses, a Chanel accessory or two and a great pair of heels. 

The Editor’s Eye is a wonderful tribute to Vogue’s 120-year history, and the fashion editors or visionaries who conceptualize a story from start to finish. Selecting models, locations, photographers, and clothing to create those arresting images. I can’t wait to spend more time with this book and to share a few fashion tomes that I love. The evening was a lovely celebration of Vogue’s women of today, Grace Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Phyllis Posnick and Camilla Nickerson and those from the past who paved the way- Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Jade Hobson, Polly Mellen and Babs Simpson, who never cease to inspire. And of course, the night was a heartfelt toast to the woman who brings out excellence in everyone. 

Such a lovely evening indeed…

    1. Ammu- Such a memorable evening:) The Vogue books are always so good-I always end up coming back to them again and again. In Vogue is one of my favorites too. I pull it out all the time- such a rich history it pulls from.

  5. Lindsay, you have to show us your outfit! I have to live vicariously through you. I hardly get to wear dresses these days or dress up for an event. I'll have to check out the book on Amazon.
