The Art of Neiman Marcus takes over the Fairmont Grand Del Mar.
Fashionistas flocked to the Fairmont Grand Del Mar for The Art of Neiman Marcus’ annual fashion extravaganza. A select number of lucky guests were escorted to the fete in style in Rolls-Royces, where they were greeted with cocktails and appetizers. The tasty menu included short-rib croquettes, seasoned avocado fries, crispy chicken sliders and mini Asian crabcakes.
Sheryl and Harvey White, Harry and Valerie Cooper, Rocio and Mike Flynn, and Yvette Diuri were among the partygoers who took in sounds from a jazz quartet led by famed vocalist Anna Danes before perusing precious jewels, furs and couture gowns.
The stylish soiree culminated with a fashion presentation from Neiman Marcus style advisor Alex Yáñez. Models sashayed down the red carpet-lined runway in gowns by Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Zac Posen, Rubin Singer and Naeem Khan; suits by Tom Ford and Brioni; furs from J. Mendel, Giuliana Teso and KaufmanFranco; and lustworthy gems from Bulgari, Chopard, Staurino Fratelli, Yeprem and Diana M. -Allison Mitchell
