Last night Maybelline New York celebrated the launch of their new Spring 2006 collection with a swanky soirÃ©e. It was hosted by Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis, who was absolutely lovely in a form fitting skirt and very Charlotte-esque round-toe heels. She was gracious and glowing, celebrating one year as the face of Maybelline. Held in a prime venue on Fifth Avenue, the event was full out red carpet.
(I had the unfortunate timing of arriving right after the gorgeous Erin Wasson and Maybelline New Yorkâ€™s star makeup artist Troy Surratt. Few things can humble a girl like the sudden darkness of the paparazzi when taking the required stroll down the red carpet to gain entry to a party.)
The requisite cocktails were flowing and what party would be complete without handsome men serving drinks and passing hors d’oeuvres? I think they ripped their servers out of an Abercrombie catalog. One of the highlights of the evening was a performance by Delta Goodrem, a truly beautiful girl, multi-Platinum singer/songwriter from Australia, cancer survivor, and sheâ€™s only 20! She was luminous behind the piano. I predict sheâ€™ll make waves in the U.S. as the next Sarah McLachlan. Decide for yourself, hear her at Maybelline.com.
