Kim Kardashian: “I’m Just So Honored”

by admin | March 29, 2013 12:00 am

Our celebration[1] of DuJour‘s spring issue continues, this time on the East coast. Sixty guests gathered inside the Darby[2] in New York City to toast Kim Kardashian[3], who was clad in an embellished Lanvin dress[4] and coordinating, metallic Jimmy Choo[5] heels for the occasion. The reality star (and mom-to-be!) glowed as she greeted guests, like designer Nicole Miller[6] and musician Paul Shaffer, in the lounge before enjoying a tasty six-course menu – which included Fluke ceviche, grilled shrimp with roasted artichokes and sherry dressing, a Calamansi Lime sorbet and ginger cookies  by the venue’s newly appointed Iron chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli[7], while Dandy Wellington and His Band[8] played Harlem Swing music from the ’30s and ’40s.

The omnipresent multihyphenate was joined by our DuJour‘s own co-editor-in-chiefs Keith Pollock and Nicole Vecchiarelli and CEO Jason Binn, as well as Cornelia Guest[9] (who interviewed Kim in a video that you can watch here[10]) during the meal, until she stood to speak to all of the guests in attendance about working with legendary photographer Bruce Weber[11]. “I’m just so honored he wanted to work with me and humbled by the experience,” Kim said, “He shot Elizabeth Taylor[12] and I’m obsessed with her so I was just really honored and this shoot came out so amazing!”

Take a look in the DuJour gallery to see more photographs from the luncheon.
