Liya Kebede and Monique Péan

What: A celebration for Monique Péan and Liya Kebede’s new fine jewelry collaboration.

When: Thursday, October 9th

Where: Cocktails, cookies, and canapé were served at the modern Upper East Side home of Erica Reid.

Who: Designers Max Osterweis and Wes Gordon, actor Seth Myers and his wife Alexi, and legendary model and agent Bethann Hardison came to toast the do-good collection: proceeds benefit the Liya Kebede Foundation, which promotes healthcare for mothers in Africa.

Why: A private performance from Niia, the new soulful songbird who’s making waves in the New York music scene, was the perfect touch to an already sparkling evening.
