For the third year, I was honored to be invited by Coty to be their guest at the Coty-DKMS 5th Annual Linked Against Leukemia Gala. This year the gala moved downtown to Cipriani Wall Street because it got bigger, it went from 4XX guests to 9XX guests. The gala was hosted by Pharrell Williams and COO of DKMS Americas, Katharina Harf, it was once again a very emotional night. Rihanna, Eva Mendes, Keri Hilson, Cyndi Lauper, Iman, David Bowie, Vera Wang, Derek Lam, Carmindy, Solange Knowles and many more were in attendance too. The special performance of the night was Mary J. Blige, she was pretty amazing! I was really happy to meet Rihanna again, she looked absolutely fabulous. I definitely had a very special night! Special thanks to Coty and DKMS for helping to save people with leukemia, to learn more visit www.dkmsamericas.org.
