Belvedere’s Bloody Boozy Brunch with Zac Posen

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Wednesday isn’t usually a day that we booze it up at noon but The AVENUEinsider couldn’t resist brunch at fancy Le Caprice hosted by designer Zac Posen to¬†celebrate Belvedere Vodka’s new “Bloody Mary” which is basically vodka that is infused with fresh (NO artificial anything) tomato and spices for that Sunday Bloody Mary Sunday snap. The laboratory-like way the new vodka is made was explained in plain English by Claire Smith and Charles Gibb who of course encouraged everyone to sip, swill and even get sloshed.

The room was packed with power pretties who (sometimes) lunch. Think: Leigh Lezark, Charlotte di Calypso, Zani Gugelmann, Dani Stahl, Genevieve Jones, Stephanie LaCava (looking amazing as always Рshe is our new style obsession), Maggie Betts, Michelle Harper, Natalie Obradovich, model Jessica White, Anna Cleveland, Meredith Ostrom, Marjorie Gubelmann (a must-follow on Twitter), stylist Masha Orlov, Kate Lanphear and of course a few dudes too like Kristian Laliberte, Louis Sarimento, and Stefan Campbell.

We fell in love with energetic fashion guru Bevy Smith (and became instant tweet-pals) and the room stood still when 70s supermodel/Halston girl Pat Cleveland arrived late but looking very, very fashionable of course.
