Before this year’s spectacular Fashion Media Awards, honorees and presenters gathered for an intimate lunch at The Park Loggia, a luxury residential development near Lincoln Center, opening in late 2019. Guests such as Emily Ratajkowski, Kathy Ireland, Nina Garcia, Halima Aden, Frédéric Fekkai, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, Charlotte Bickley, Sophie Bickley, Tomo Koizumi, Sasha Siem, Zoey Grossman, and Tan France emjoyed cocktails from Casamigos before sitting down for an intimate lunch by culinary legend Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The illustrious chef kicked things off with peach salad with goat cheese, frisée, and pistachio, followed by black sea bass with market corn and cherry tomato vinaigrette, and ended on a delicious high note—heavenly strawberry sundaes.
The gathering also celebrated the American release of beloved talk show host and FMA emcee Graham Norton’s latest novel, A Keeper. Aden had an E! film crew following her at the lunch, while Norton revealed he’d be filling his time between the meal and the FMAs with an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. France arrived a few minutes late because he was speaking on a panel at Spring Studios earlier with Negin Mirsalehi, winner of The Daily and Revolve’s inaugural Influencer of the Year award at the FMAs. Insane schedules? It must be Fashion Week!
