American by Birth.

So as it turns out, not only is Esquire an amazing magazine, but they know how to throw some pretty amazing parties as well. This past weekend Esquire’s editor-in-chief David Granger and famed NYC restaurateur Danny Meyers threw an insane Kentucky Derby event at the award-winning Eleven Madison restaurant. Graced by nothing less than a miracle, the 10% chance of sunshine stayed faithful the entire day and it ending up being one of the most amazing and beautiful parties I’ve ever had the chance to attend—the fact that the place was swarming with cute boys in seersucker didn’t hurt either. Four special maker’s Mark Bourbon bars were stationed throughout serving Maker’s mint juleps in traditional ice-frosted silver cups. Also, legendary tobacconist Nat Sherman was on hand to transform the outside area into a sleek yet laid-back cigar lounge, complete with live Kentucky bluegrass music.

Best outfits of the day?
He was wearing a perfectly tailored seersucker suit, cropped at the bare ankle. He wore classic white canvas converse and he topped it all off with tortoise shell ray bans and a bit of arrogant confidence. I attempted to hunt him down (to ask him about his suit) but gave up after a while because he was always surrounded!

She was a knockout in head-to-toe Dior and I was mesmerized by her entire ensemble. I finally got a chance to ask, and turns out she works within the Christian Dior family and the clothes came as part of her clothing salary—a girl can dream, right?! Anyway, she was so sweet and we hit it off. Turns out her hat-more of a headband with flowers attached (think Carrie Bradshaw a la her wedding day) was a DIY project she did the day before!
