My photo diary covering 24 hours from last week and it already feels like ages ago!

  • First set:  Gorgeous London NYC Hotel.  Biggest rooms in NYC I’ve seen yet and I would be thrilled if I could stay here again!
  • Second set:  Lunch at the Gordon Ramsey restaurant in the hotel.  Simply mouthwatering. 
  • Third set:  Getting ready in the big suite.  Hair by the Bumble and Bumble team, makeup by the Estee Lauder team, styling by the Harper’s Bazaar team.  Felt like a bona fide princess!
  • Fourth set:  I was too busy enjoying myself (and pinching myself – wasn’t sure this was all really happening) to take photographs during the event itself.  The styling team dressed me in a Diane von Furstenberg dress & Casadei heels (want these soooo badly!).

During the evening event, I spotted Coco Rocha and a bevy of other gorgeous models, shook hands with the Estee Lauder executives and family, chatted with Editor in Chief Glenda Bailey, shared the stage with Elizabeth Hurley for 0.25 seconds and spent time catching up with my special guest, Lindsey.  A longtime friend and the best person to enjoy the evening with! <3 I may have said this before, but I was so honored to be among the ladies they selected this year – they were all so inspiring!  I was always referred to as “the youngest” and it was a reminder of all of the experiences to look forward to & accomplishments to pursue.

I love the message Harper’s Bazaar and Estee Lauder passed along during this event – ladies, it’s true, we’re all fabulous at every age.  🙂
