Clinique’s Dramatic Evening

Clinique's Dramatic Evening: After Hours


What: A party celebrating Clinique’s new Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, reformulated 45 years after its inception

When: Tuesday, June 18th

Where: The 620 Loft & Garden at Rockefeller Center. Rain—the running theme of June—kept guests from fully enjoying the outdoor space, but that didn’t stop a woman in a sweeping yellow dress from performing an interpretative dance in homage to the famed lotion. Those who stayed inside were treated to a wall artfully covered in bottles of the potion and an all-white room with banquettes, a bar, a portrait studio with Sophie Elgort, a fashion illustrator booth, and tunes from the Djs Mad Marj and Hannah Bronfman.

Stacy Keibler and Emily VanCamp

Who: A white and buttercream-clad group—one man was overheard telling his companions that his look was his “Kentucky Derby” outfit. Celebrities included Stacy Kiebler, Emily VanCamp, Archie Panjabi, Katharine McPhee, and Petra Nemcova.

Why: In this fickle consumer climate, a moisturizer that can maintain a loyal following for 45 years deserves a party. Also, any beauty maven worth her weight in humectants knows it’s best to apply moisturizer to damp skin. So rain, take that!
