V.I.P. Swarovski Party

September 17, 2010

The perks of working for a well known and respected designer, is getting to go to exclusive parties!

With the Toronto International Film Festival going on, Swarovski held a pre-screening cocktail party for a new Jennifer Connelly movie, “What’s Wrong With Virginia” and having ties with Swarovski, our office got an invite! I was the only one able to make it and made sure to share the experience with someone who could truly appreciate it, my BFF Melanie – the biggest fashionista I know.

To look the part for this low key, late afternoon affair, we needed to strike the perfect balance of casual glamour. I think we pulled it off.

As for the party itself, it was more of a Swarovski promotion than anything else. It felt fabulous walking the mini red carpet and being ushered through the velvet rope, where we then bee-lined for the open bar – free raspberry cosmos, yes please! Between sips we spent our time mingling around, checking out the stunning displays and trying on extravagant OTT bling. They had three mannequins wearing Swarovski bejeweled dresses, including the actual gold crystal dress Kim Cattral wore at the end of the first “Sex And The City” movie! It looked so slinky and light but it really weighed a ton! It’s completely made out of metal mesh with crystals laid into it with chain trimming the neckline and armholes. It was staggering!

The cherry on top of this delightfully girly evening was the goody bag! Everyone left with a Swarovski crystal studded silver leather cuff.  Completely bling but still everyday casual – what a score!

On the topic of celebrity sightings, the event was a bit of a bust. Saw some people that looked familiar but didn’t know where they were from, and never saw Jennifer Connelly. She apparently did show, she just came in through the rear entrance that lead straight into a private sitting room and didn’t stay long.
