Hello and happy Friday, we are more-than-ready for a weekend.
Today we merely share some Friday Fun, it seems like time to revel in a bit of frivolity, and we begin with a quick review of yesterday’s Seersucker Thursday.
The non-partisan celebration of the summery fabric on Capitol Hill is traditionally marked every June. Above we see Senators sporting their stripes, from left to right: Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, Sen. Susan Collins, R-ME, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of KY and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY. Below we have the larger group of Senators and Representatives, temporarily looking like one big happy family
We do enjoy this tradition, a bit of lighthearted fun amid the intense goings-on seems like a good idea. (And yes, we do love our seersucker here at the Prepatorium, in season.)
Next, more Wimbledon news. As mentioned in yesterday’s post, last night was Elton John’s annual White Tie and Tiaras party, always a spot to see some serious party frocks. Below, Anne Hathaway in Prada alongside Chopard exec Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele (Chopard was an event sponsor), on the right we see Elizabeth Hurley in Roberto Cavelli.
Several Royals made appearances, including Princess Beatrice, very elegant in Elie Saab, her mother, Sarah Ferguson, in Escada and Princess Eugenie was in Vivienne Westwood.
Another Wimbledon-related note, some readers may recall that tennis ace Maria Sharapova has a deal with Tiffany, she wears a pair of their earrings at every Grand Slam event. (Ahem.)
This year at the All England Club Ms. Sharapova is wearing earrings from Tiffany’s Legacy Collection in platinum, they are described by the company as “…drop earrings… feature exquisitely faceted round brilliant diamonds. …”. (Double ‘ahem,’ your correspondent isn’t terribly fond of diamonds before the cocktail hour with the exception of those in one’s engagement and/or wedding ring. Silly Princess.)
If interested in this pair, they may be found here.
We leave you with a lovely reminder of this weekend’s Newport Flower Show.
The primary event is on the grounds of Rosecliff, but there are activities everywhere, there is even a Facebook page for the Show. One more picture we can’t resist sharing, these just look so pretty.
May everyone enjoy a weekend as beautiful as the plants at the Flower Show. 🙂
