Hermès hosts a special preview of "Pannonica de Koenigswarter: Jazz Musicians and Their Three Wishes".....Madison Ave.


Last night I attended a private preview of "Pannonica de Koenigswarter: Jazz Musicians and Their Three Wishes" at the Hermès store on the Upper East Side. The photo exhibit, which officially opens today, features original polaroids Pannonica—a.k.a. the “Bebop Baroness” (and FYI of Rothschild family fame)—took in the ‘50s and ‘60s of the jazz scene, as well as amazing personal photos of jazz greats like Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus…to name a few. The exhibit is also to celebrate the English-language reprint of the book Three Wishes: An Intimate Look at Jazz Greats.

The party was all one would expect from Hermès: fancy miniature hors d'oeuvres, male models moonlighting as servers, free-flowing wine and champagne, a live jazz band and, of course, ladies with very expensive taste in handbags. (See more from the evening on Confessions from the Velvet Ropes.) On a personal note, it also served as the debut of my newest fabulous purchase. Drumroll please...

Tada! Introducing my over-the-top sparkling necklace. I just love her! On my right: The always sparkling Mr. Glenn Belverio.

Just in case you couldn't see her...
