On the eve of New York Fashion Week,  Beverly Johnson and over 300 of her friends gathered at the Museum of the City of New York for a celebration of the life and memoirs of the accomplished supermodel.

Johnson, whose Vogue cover in August of 1974 broke grounds and opened doors for models of color in the US and abroad, graciously hosted and mingled with the impressive crowd of entertainers, fashionistas, executives and die-hard fans at the stunningly decorated venue, which boasted signature cocktails and tasty bites over two floors.

I got mine!!!

The star-studded gala, attended by the likes of Clive Davis, Mikki Taylor, Cheryl Lee Ralph, CeCe Peniston and more was quite the family affair; she was flanked by her daughter and best friend during her note of thanks, a short speech was also given by her long-term partner and we were treated to a musical performance by her nephew!

When I wasn’t fangirling it out I did take a few pictures, so check out the rest below. And you can get your own copy of Beverly’s “The Face that Changed it All” on Amazon. Here’s to a fun fashion week!
