Our Image Gal Samantha von Sperling attends a V.I.P. party for the season five premiere of Mad Men!
I love living in a city where we get all dressed up to watch television. It’s where a pure sense of fashion, production and theatricality meet.
The cocktail of the evening was in Manhattan of course, at the Paley Center for Media. The best part of the evening was the crowd. It was so nice to see 300 men and women dressed up in retro fashion to reflect the early sixties, and all having so much fun with it. Grandmothers’ mink stoles came out of mothballs for the occasion, along with rhinestones, broaches, pearls and very lacquered updo’s. The little white gloves, pocket squares and fedoras made for a surprisingly glamorous and fun event.
I was accompanied by my trainer, Scott Bittermen of Emerge Athletics. Those of you who have been reading my chronicle, “Lose 20 Pounds in Six Weeks,” know that Scott is my trainer championing my quest to get back in to shape. I did not eat any of the snacks that would undo all my hard work for the day, and no Manhattan’s for me! Just water.
The screening itself was fun: the new season of Mad Men will have us all on the edge of our seats!
