Whew – last week was quite the week for events! On Wednesday, I attended the opening of celebrity makeup artist Erwin Gomez’s new beauty lounge in the West End neighborhood, Karma by Erwin Gomez. Erwin is a gem of an individual and has styled celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Jennifer Garner, Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Garth Brooks, Keyshia Cole and Maria Shriver among others. Plus, he picked out my leather dress at a recent Gilt event, which I immediately had to purchase after trying it on.
The event was amazing, attended by over 400 notable Washingtonians, and featured Belvedere Lemon Tea cocktails, Terrazas wine, and passed hors d’oeuvres from RSVP Catering. The high-profile soiree featured music by celebrity DJ, DJ Biks and a name-fitting new Fisker Karma luxury vehicle parked outside the salon as well. Swag bags were filled with cosmetic products from brands such as Sanitas, Unite, Moroccan Oil, Keratin Complex and Schwarzkopf. Overall, the event was amazing and I am so proud of Erwin, the designer, Brook Rose, and the partner team for opening such a great spot that I can’t wait to visit!
Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending the Washingtonian’s Style Setters event sponsored by Ann Taylor and Honest Tea at Sax Restaurant and Lounge. It was a fashion-studded event with all of DC’s most stylish personalities and figures, and all around, a really great time! I enjoyed meeting the individuals chosen as Style Setters for 2012, and can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store. As a side note, unfortunately for me my camera failed to function at the event but check out the coverage from the Washingtonian with great pictures: http://www.washingtonian.com/blogs/shoparound/style-setters/the-style-setters-2012-party-at-sax-restaurant-and-lounge-pictures.php
