Last night Anna Wintour, Elettra Wiedemann, Lauren Bush Lauren, Lauren Santo Domingo, Maggie Betts, Alina Cho, Amanda Hearst and more head to the launch of Claiborne Swanson Frank’s  Assouline photography book “American Beauty.”


The evening was hosted by Tod’s, who displayed their handbags amongst the books, and Vogue.  Claiborne previously served as an assistant for Wintour and currently works as a contributing photographer at the iconic mag.


Held uptown at a Park Aveunue event space decorated with large white flowers and populated with men and women dressed to the nines, it was an incredibly pretty affair. DJ Solange Knowles provided the tunes as guests mingled, nibbled on hors d’oeuvres, and kept an eye out in case her sister Beyonce happened to stop by.  It didn’t happen, but no matter. Guests were given plenty to gawk at flipping through the gorgeous photographs,  many of the evenings attendees and all epitomes of American beauty.
