A stylish crowd gathered at the Room on Thursday night to fete fashion writer and Manhattan-based man-about-town Derek Blasberg, who was in Vancouver to promote his second and latest book, Very Classy. This follow-up volume to his bestseller Classy is a social etiquette primer providing "exceptional advice for the extremely modern lady." Very Classy contains the same tips as Classy about dressing well, how to behave at parties and how to navigate tricky relationship minefields, but also features new Q&A sections and two new chapters about home decor and health. In an age where impressionable girls seem to have only celebutantes and tabloid stars to look up to, Classy and Very Classy are a breath of fresh air.
You know what else was a breath of fresh air after a month-long convalescence? Catching up with familiar faces while meeting new ones and admiring the Room's beautiful clothes and accessories. Of course, meeting Derek Blasberg wasn't too shabby either. I am a huge fan of his first book and was pleased to see that he is just as charming and well-mannered as he seems in his writing.
Here's a look at the event through photos. Enjoy!
