Vera Wang celebrated the launch of her latest fragrance, Lovestruck, with Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester at the fabulous James Hotel. Vera was there to tell us about Lovestruck:
“Lovestruck is about the emotion and rush you feel when you are falling in love and going for it…those heart-pounding moments of spontaneity,” Vera said of her new scent creation, which has notes of florals, woods and musk.
Lovestruck comes in a gorgeous and feminine flower bottle. Vera, who wore a black jumpsuit, added that Lovestruck was inspired by a modern day twist on Romeo & Juliet. It captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love, captivated by passion. It represents an irresistible romance.
Leighton, who is featured in the fragrance’s ad campaign, stopped by later after a filming of Gossip Girl looking gorgeous in a white dress with a leather belt and some of the highest heels we’ve ever seen. Her hair was swept into an elegant messy updo with an edgy studded barette. Leighton was super friendly and smiled for the cameras as they caught her getting her palm read.
The chic event was held at Jimmy, the hotel’s scenic rooftop venue. Bartenders mixed up signature Lovestruck cocktails and a palm and tarot card reader was on hand to see if love was in your future. You could even send a love note to a friend or special someone from one of the laptops there.
