DIOR BEAUTY celebrated the 10th anniversary of J’Adore with a glittery event at NYC’s newest hot spot, The Boom Boom Room @ The Standard New York.

Guests were dripping in gold, as was the venue’s décor, all in celebration of the fragrance.
 Highlights from the event included: Ally Hilfiger and crew busting a move, including back flips, to 80s flashback “Come on Eileen,” Theodora Richards rocking a vintage blue velvet blazer with embroidered flowers and gold embellished buttons, plucked straight out of father Keith Richard’s closet, and Derek Blasberg and Tinsley Mortimer posing for prom style pictures whilst recapping summer’s best highlights with the paparazzi.

New Yorkers got a taste of the impossible made real as  Heather Graham unveiled the extraordinary Spider Silk exhibit in the American Museum of Natural History at an intimate and private reception honoring Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley, the dreamweavers behind the one of a kind textile made from the silk of more than a million spiders.  
To imagine a textile woven from the gossamer threads of spiders has long been the stuff of dreams and fairy tale. Peers and Godley have turned it into the warp and weft of a unique and fabulous cloth to touch and admire. Drawing inspiration from an eccentric history of attempts to use the silk of spiders in weaving, this unique textile took almost five years to make, using a painstaking technique and required teams of collectors, 'silkers,' throwers and weavers to produce. More than a million Golden Orb spiders from Madagascar were collected, silked (ultra fine, naturally golden-colored silk was carefully extracted by hand from the female spiders’ spinnerets) and released.
Heather Graham, Nicholas Godley, and Simon Peers
The result was silk untrammelled,  untouched and untreated which then was thrown and mounted on a loom to be woven as pure as the silk in a web. Imbued with metaphor and poetry, with nightmare and phobia, with tales and myths that resonate within us all, this spectacular textile encompasses an extraordinary history, embodying the diverse meanings and associations that inspire and fire the imagination. Few textiles can claim such a rich heritage. 
Some might have said that The UN and Presidential gridlock that caused the unexpected Park closing made getting to the AMNH impossible that night but dedicated guests made it, some walking 10 blocks in 4-inch heels or resorting to the subway in their golden silky chic-ness. A sparking gold carpet and bubbly Veuve Clicquot welcomed guests as they entered the Grand Gallery.
