Last night Kiehl’s had a ceremonial unveiling of their new in-store photographer exhibit and auction featuring the works of Christopher Makos in New York. On this coast, they’re commemorating with an exhibit of large-scale prints through the 29th. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the online sale and auction of the limited edition bottle featuring his photos go towards the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, which funds scientific research on the disease in the hopes for an eventual cure.
Guests and celebs alike all flocked to the West Hollywood store to comingle, bid on some of Makos’ paintings, snatch up one of the limited edition silkscreens, and (as per usual) eat, drink, and be merry!
The store was potentially at capacity with all of the eager attendees. Samantha Ronson regaled guests with her DJing while other celebs like Gilles Marini, Ali Landry, Heather McDonald, Catt Sadler, Ali Fedotowsky, Roseanne Barr, and Christopher Makos himself all socialized around the behemoth tables of Kiehl’s products in the middle of the room.
As guests made periodic visits to the bar for Tito’s Vodka cocktails, servers dished out a number of Akasha hors d’oeuvres, ranging from vegetable skewers to delightful one-bite concoctions of curried chicken or albacore tuna. It’s hard to go wrong when vodka and crackers are part of the mix. And to top it all off, guests left with a bundle of Kiehl’s goodies, face washes, and creams to remember the evening by! Not too shabby of a Wednesday night. Do you have a favorite Kiehl’s product?
