Happy Monday, Bombers and Bombshells!
Fashionistas of all stripes gathered for a night fun, networking, and best of all, fashion on Saturday, November 11th for our annual event, Cocktail with Claire! Our Editor-In-Chief Claire Sulmers and celebrity stylist, Ty Hunter, took over The Attic Rooftop & Lounge in Midtown Manhattan.
The chilly weather couldn’t stop the party! Guests, including Love & Hip-Hop’s Yandy Smith arrived in their flyest furs, coats, and more.
Before the party headed up to the roof with drinks and music by DJ Olivia Dope, VIP attendees had the chance to brunch with Claire, Ty and our special guests Mr. Jay Manuel and Robert Verdi. The industry moguls shared advice with aspiring stylists, journalists, designers, and creatives during a short panel discussion. The guests sipped on Martini & Rossi and Seagrams Spiked drinks while indulging on the delicious menu items at The Attic including a delicious lobster mac & cheese, a chicken and waffles platter, and more.
Once the panel and brunch ended, the crowd headed up to the roof for the party! Claire and Ty made their rounds and greeted guests who anxiously awaited to take selfies and introduce themselves to the host and hostess. Claire signed books while shinning in her Marquette21 dress.
Not only did bombshells and bombers dance the night away, but they shopped it up as well. Tnemnroda Eyewear was on the scene with their statement shades, Moda Operandi showcased designer duds, and Dare to Have Hair offered their wares to savvy fashionistas.
Before the party ended, iconic costume designer and honoree Patricia Field arrived! She was honored by Claire & Ty with an award for her commitment to diversity.
To close out the evening, we spotted some major street style looks and even got to chat it up with these Bombshells and Bombers (stay tuned for the interviews coming soon!) Take a look what they chose to rock for the night.
Who says you can’t wear white in the fall?! Patrick (spag_lo) show us otherwise! He stepped out in a casual look making a statement with his pastel pink leather jacket.
Yesss! This bombshell opted for a tuxedo jumpsuit and a white and gray fur coat. Her leopard print pouch adds the perfect touch to this chic look!
These fab ladies posed with Ty Hunter in their bomb looks. They stood out in the crowd while channeling their personal style. I am loving the twist on the track pants!
Carina aka @goldofthesun from LA exuded floral essence chic within her look of in blue and green hues. It’s so urban, yet elegant. Love it!
Patrick aka @monsieurbelange from Lagos, Nigeria looked rich and dapper in bronze and wool fabric for his look for the night!
Nadia aka @queensolomanjewels from Brooklyn was giving me Taraji P. Henson tease all night! Her smokey makeup and slick back pony matched perfectly with her furry green coat, paired with a @gucci waist belt.
WERK! I ran into Shanda aka @gigichroniclesnyc from New Jersey who looked glam drenched in a full burnt orange ensemble!
Davon aka @authentic_personality from Connecticut aimed for a black and white modern look, and he nailed it!
@Qayseanroe looked fab in a black monochrome fit. To complete the look he added a touch of slay with his layered multicolored fur coat.
Oui, Oui! Shantell aka @shantedion from Boston, MA opted for a Parisian inspired look and killed it! The stripes in the fit are everything!
So much sleekness! Shauna aka @loveshere from Connecticut looked chic and kept it minimal in her royal blue jumpsuit layered with a fur coat.
Thank you to all the FBD readers who came out for a jam-packed day of fun with Claire, Ty and all of our special guests. We’ll see you in the next city!
