Molly Sims and Michael Bruno, founder and president of, co-hosted the first solo exhibit of fashion photographer Greg Lotus entitled “Impressions” held in the newly opened 1stdibs gallery space at the New York Design Center last night.

Beautiful faces of the fashion world and ingenious minds of the design world collided to celebrate the occasion. As one of Rachel Zoe’s perfectly styled clients, Molly Sims was being filmed by the crew of the Rachel Zoe Project for an upcoming season, looking adorable in a shimmering sheath and laughing with friendly guests.

The elite crowd included Thom Felicia, Mary Alice Stephenson, Gbenga Akinnagbe of The Good Wife, Greg Lotus and Joey Maalouf, of the Rachel Zoe Project. Sipping on mango margaritas, attendees admired twenty-five of Lotus’ photographs previously featured in the pages of such publications as Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue, GQ and W Magazine.  The amazing prints are for sale and will remain on display until April 22nd.
