When someone asks me, "Would you like to go to a royalty event?" I always say YES.
Please enjoy these photos from the Soirée Impériale, a party to celebrate 400 years of the Romanoff Dynasty and the Russian New Year held at the Racquet and Tennis Club in Manhattan. It was formal event, but I love how some of the men had their own take on formalwear - plus their unique badges of course. A few of the ladies were wearing a designer's (name to come) interpretation of royal court costumes, which I thought were quite lovely.
Thank you to Edward di Lamporecchio, and the very sweet Princess Lucretia Obolensky for having me! You can view full set of photos here.
