The week before Thanksgiving, Jean Shafiroff welcomed over 100 guests to toast the release of Rose Hartman‘s photography book “Incomparable Women of Style” at The Sanctuary Hotel’s Haven Rooftop. Ms. Hartman signed copies and a portion of the proceeds from sales at the event benefited FIT’s Couture Council. Supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice, one of the many fashion icons featured in the book, joined in on the celebration.

Patrick McMullan snapped shots of the glamorous women in attendance, among them Couture Council members Yaz Hernandez and Chiu-Ti Jansen, along with Janna Bullock, Lisa Simonsen, Cassandra Seidenfeld, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Katherine Todd, and Stacey Engman, who also appeared in the book. Dr. Laura Torrado, designers Maggie Norris and Joanna Mastroianni, Robin Cofer, and rocker Madame Mayhem enjoyed a fabulous fall night under the stars and cocktails by Double Cross Vodka.

Incomparable Women of Style is a book for fashion aficionados, photography and popular culture fans, featuring over 200 photos that photographer Rose Hartman has captured over the last 35 years. The book includes both iconic and rarely seen pictures of celebrated women known for their unparalleled taste and style: Nan Kempner, Jackie O., Brooke Astor, Grace Jones, Anna Wintour, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Daphne Guinness among many illustrious others.
