Versani Charity Event

I went to a charity event that was being hosted by Versani Jewelry Co. to raise money for Sierra Leone. Ariel was modeling for the show, so I was invited as a guest to photograph the event. It was a very rainy night. So not all of the guests showed up. The guest list included a lot of celebrities, but I really couldn't make out who was there, or who was even performing because it was so dark. I didn't post all of the pictures up, only a select few that were appropriate for everyone to see. I will say that there is "nudity" but everything is covered by thick layers of body paint. The models were painted by a theater artist. Each model had either a part of the map painted on them, or was painted to look like an animal. There was music, poetry and dancing. I felt like the big elephant in the room. Mainly because I was the only female entirely clothed at the event and because it was the first event I was ever asked to shoot. I was pretty nervous, shy and excited at the same time. It's safe to say that it was a pretty strange night.

Late Night Tourist-y Adventure

Ariel left her blackberry in the cab the other night. Luckily, the cab driver who found gave me a call. Ariel and I decided to embark on a mini adventure into the city to pick up her phone. Sure enough, the cab driver was a creep. Then we decided to go to Bloomingdales and get our makeup done while waiting for our friend Elizabeth.

Red Elmo

We went out to celebrate Ariel's 20th birthday the other night. I rarely go out late because of work and school...and because the clubs and bars are particularly not my scene. But, I had to make an exception for her big 2-0 hehe. We stopped by MAC Cosmetics to get her makeup done and then we celebrated her birthday down in Chelsea at Red Elmo.
