Fete For a Princess-Mont Blanc Grace Kelly Brunch at the Bel Air Hotel

Friday, May 18, 2012

A decadent brunch took place one Saturday morning during Oscars award season. Actually, to call it a brunch is to call a diamond a stone. It was more of a masterpiece created by the coming together of three timeless and legendary classics. Mont Blanc, the craftsmen of luxury pens, watches and jewelry hosted and footed the bill for the fete, which took place at Hotel Bel Air, an indulgent retreat tucked away in the heart of the enclave of the wealthy. The event celebrated the launch of the new Princess de Monaco jewelry collection, stunning pieces that exude opulence and grace.

While nibbling on caviar and delicate libations, I mingled with the celebrity guests, chit chatting with famous faces about fashion, life and awards season. Princess Albert and his new wife made an appearance. Everyone was in a chipper mood, enjoying the food, the bling-candy, and the beautiful ambiance. After all, it's nearly impossible to not be in a good mood when pints of caviar, endless bottles of champagne, and royalty are present.

the collection is inspired by the iconic and symbolic Grace Kelly pink rose

Rosario Dawson in Salvatore Ferragamo. She was super cute and down to earth. We talked about our brittle nails and her semi-permanent London residency. 

Giada de Laurentiis in Balenciaga. I asked if I could hang out in her Malibu home and watch her cook. Creeper alert.

Petra Nemcova in Mont Blanc jewelry. She is beautiful, inside and out. 

Funny girl Arden Myrin in Cynthia Rowley. My fav The Office gal Kate Flannery in Lela Rose. They create laughter while looking absolutely fab. Love!

David Haysbert, my favorite Prez! Seeing him made me feel safe and "in good hands."

I'm just a fat kid at heart.
