|Karen Bromley -gets a smooch from TV personality, Robert.|
Host for the evening was the statuesque Vivica A. Fox -a mega-talented actress and television producer who we personally LOVED in the hit comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm. A commanding stage presence, Ms. Fox could tackle Shakespeare as well as the rumba (Dancing With The Stars) and has stared in many feature films and television shows. Naturally we asked 'who' she was wearing----"Alexander McQueen."
|cocktails…and food stations-ending with dessert|
|Mac n" Cheese-yummy|
|This updo for short hair deserves Allure mag. mention. Created by Vanity Salon owner Anthony Cimdo the messy (in a good way) modern chignon-is a double pony tail (up/down) twisted and wrapped around- and pinned, pinned pinned -with front pieces pulled out-framed face perfectly.|
|Manicure by Claristza Martinez…on created to show off nail art, Instagram: funkynailpolishbyclaritza|
|John Bartlett-menswear designer-we chatted about how nice Milwaukee is-super art museum, swimmable lake front, and a great host town for the National Triathlon Championships|
FYI-for NYC types-this department store chain, headquartered in Milwaukee- has open year round (except Thanksgiving) retail locations throughout the northeast, mid-Atlantic, midwest, and mountain states…PLUS of course, e-commerce.
|Nick Graham-center-with colleagues nattily attired in matching pocket handkerchiefs. NICE.|
Dubbed "Nick Graham" appropriately enough. We asked what inspired his visual design choices---"dogs and skulls…"
|We had a Vivienne Tam moment with this guest-looked amazing in a bold b/w animal print trench over a solid red -orange tinged dress and color block stripy sandals. InStyle magazine worthy.|
|packed-over 800 guests|
