Burberry Angela Ahrendts honor at English Ball

I was honor to be hired to do makeup & hair for @NYCGEORGE English Ball here in NYC honoring @AngelaAhrendts @Burberry at the beautiful Guastavino’s on yesterday evening. The weather was not so great earlier in the day. But the well planned out thing that GEORGE NYC did was schedule hair & makeup to be done for the New York socials inside Guastavinos. I had more than enough space and light to give the ladies a glamxurious look for the evening. Thanks St. George’s Society of New York for bringing concierge hair and makeup services to the ladies.


Guastavino’s is an architectural masterpiece and designated a New York City Interior landmark. Situated under the 59th Street Bridge with its soaring granite arches and Catalan vaulted tiled ceiling, this is a unique space for the 2011 English Ball.


Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry Group plc, will be honored at the Society’s English Ball to be held on Wednesday 4 May 2011 at Guastavino’s, New York.
