Champagne problems were nowhere in sight at this A-list event! On Thursday, June 3, Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame hosted a champagne fête at the New York Botanical Gardens to celebrate their annual Spring Gala and newest exhibition, Kusama: Cosmic Nature.
Among the attendees were dozens of notable stars and philanthropists including Karlie Kloss, Brooke Shields, Alek Wek, Jodie Turner-Smith, Nicky Hilton, Olivia Palermo and Nigel Barker as well as many other elite names.
The crowd spent the night listening to tunes by DJ Mei Kwok while sipping on La Grande Dame champagne.
The champagne that filled the guests’ glasses for the night, La Grande Dame 2012, is a prestige cuvée created in honor of the brand’s namesake, Madame Clicquot, a trailblazer in the champagne industry with the innovation and audacity to make it as a female entrepreneur in the early 1800s. Sticking with the event’s theme, the newest vintage bottles were designed by Yayoi Kusama for a limited edition collaboration, in which she infused her signature dots, bright colors and artistic style to spread a message of joy, hope and optimism.
As a continuation of the partnership between Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame and the NYBG, those visiting the exhibit throughout the summer season will also be able to enjoy champagne and garden-inspired food pairings at The Hudson Garden Grill.
