I had the thrill to attend this yesterday afternoon at Noon and I must say, I was blown away. It was the most amazing collection of gems, fashion, movie memorabilia, art I have ever seen. The exhibit was shown in a most wonderful and classy way. Everything went on time, we entered 12:04 and were done at 2pm. I would love to go one more time!! It was worth the admission for sure and I will have a more detailed post this week.
Here is a video from Christie's on the exhibit that I thought was nice to see. If you have the chance to go to this, run, don't walk.
One of my favorite pieces:
