Was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the celebrations.What fabulous hospitality, with attention to to every minute detail, with utmost precision. I was reminded of how fabulous it was to be part of a traditional Indian wedding where guests are made to feel like royalty themselves. This truly was a grand experience, one I will cherish for a long time to come.

Congratulations once again, Nishka & Dhruv, wish you both nothing but the best!

Michael Kors and his plus one (Kate Hudson)

 

And, because the occasion called for a fabulous after-party, Kors—together with iTunes—held an exclusive post-Gala event at The Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side. Inside, the A-list posed for photo-booth-style candid snaps  mingled gown-to-gown with music that set the mood just right. The night ended on a high-note with a performance by Grammy Award-winner Miguel.No that’s what I call a party!
