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.

THE VENUE

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.

George NYC Royal Wedding Bash

Fun pics from St. George’s Society of New York Royal Wedding Bash of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29th at The Edison Ballroom. During the VIP Cocktail and after dinner I was able to do glam makeup on the ladies with bold eyeshadows, and bright lip colors. Some of the ladies wanted me to create Kate Middleton wedding makeup on them. A look that was soft and youthful, Kate signature look.
New York British community welcomed me with open arms into their community. They made me felt as part of their family. A great evening had by all. More pics coming soon from GEORGE NYC.
