We enjoyed a festive evening at Sant Ambroeus West Village last week, when Olivia Palermo and I hosted a Holiday dinner to celebrate AERIN’s fashion accessories. It was one of those beautiful nights, with a lovely group of people, candlelit tables expertly decorated by Fiona Leahy, and exquisite floral arrangements by Saipua in AERIN Gilded Clover and Moritz vases. The guests, including Amanda Ross, Carolyn Murphy, Gucci Westman, Meredith Melling, Miranda Brooks, Rose Gilroy, Tabitha Simmons, and Valerie Boster, got into the spirit of the season, pulling traditional crackers designed by Clym Everden, which contained fragrance rollerballs, chocolate, and Rose Lip Conditioner. Everyone also received one of my favorite handbags from the collection, a suede Leopard Zip Pouch—a timeless accessory for a winter night out.
