On Friday the stylish ladies of New York lunched chez Christie’s amid the scenery of impressionist and modern art, as well as the designs of luxury jewelry designer Coomi Bhasin’s Fall collection for her eponymous line Coomi. Town & Country hosted the event along with Christie’s to celebrate the auction house’s “Impressionist and Modern Art” sale taking place May 8th, while also fÃªte-ing the fabulous Coomi designs, which, like the surrounding art, are relics of history.
Besides all the (must-warranted) fuss over splendor on the runways during Paris Fashion Week, there are shindigs du note happening left and right. On the refined end of the soiree spectrum: last week’s Town & Country bash, held at the abode of Ambassador Charles Rivkin and his wife, Susan Tolston. The eve’s woman of honor? T&C fashion editor-at-large, Jade Hobson. Carine Roitfeld and Stephen Gan rolled through, as did T&C’s EIC, Jay Fielden, Hayley Bloomingdale, Indre Rockefeller, Shala Monroque, and Dior’s Olivier Bialobos, and Andre Leon Talley (we can’t get enough of this superexcited meet-and-greet shot with ALT and the Ambassador!).

It was the snow, falling almost embarrassingly cinematically while the looming (potential) weather crisis went relatively ignored.
