PP1: Inside Catherine Malandrino's Cointreau Cocktail PartyBy Delaina Dixon | December 11, 2009 | Entertainment
G Stone hangs out with Catherine Malandrino and brings back all the scoop for Perfect Plus One!
“I’m always ready for an adventure for www.delainadixon.com. Putting in an appearance for Catherine Malandrino’s cocktail party at her showroom in New York City’s Meatpacking district party meant braving a pouring downfall, but it was worth it!
The designing fashionista was celebrating her debut of her bottle design exclusively for Cointreau. Draped in a patterned mesh metal cover, the bottle for the tasty orange liqueur is just as glamorous as her gorgeous dresses!
Upon arriving, I was informed that I could win a $250 gift certificate to Catherine Malandrino if I signed up to be CatherineΓÇÖs friend on Facebook. Sounded easy enough, and there’s plenty of room in my closet for a Catherine Malandrino original, so I did it.
Cointreau cocktails in a shade of rosy pink were served on shiny metal trays. Of course, they tasted fabulous!
It was then time for Catherine’s arrival. She arrived in a cute sequin top of her own design to pose for the camera.
I checked out Catherine’s Fall/Winter 2009 line, filled with fabulous suede thigh high boots in black and purple and sweaters and tops in emerald green, mauve, black, pink, electric blue and prints blending all the aforementioned colors. There were cocktail dresses galore, sequin tops and a red leather jacket I was totally craving.
Catherine’s accessories, which included clutches, belts and jewelry, were a cute addition to finish off any look. I was surprised to see that she hadn’t laid out her Spring 2010 pieces, but that’s just another reason for me to make another trek to the shop.
Of course, I’d be really enticed if I had that $250 gift certificate in my hands!”
