Alex McCord and her husband Simon van Kempen from the Bravo reality hit, The Real Housewives of New York City, were among the guest for the night, as well as style expert Derek Warburton.

Joining Alex, Simon and Derek in the front row for the show was none other than yours truly and my good friend Natasha Huang.

The Blanc de Chine Fall/Winter 2010 collection draws its inspiration from the reifned elegance of the Ming Dynasty. The collection references the design essence of ceremonial robes of Ming officials and the sleek silhouette of Ming furniture.
Above: How much are you loving these two dresses? The brown floral sequined dress really made a huge impact on the runway. Love a good statement dress!
Above: I think that this red dress photographs really well and would be a good event dress.
Above: I really love the colors in the piece. It is a good look for a casual yet stylish look. Below: This suit looks great on the runway but I don't know if I could pull off a Chinese inspired jacket situation. Maybe I should try one day.
Mark Rapp and Don Braden did an amazing job of playing soothing Jazz music during the show. The models walked slowly to the pace of the music.
After the show I had a chance to speak with Alex McCord and she told me she loved my bow tie! I have actually attended a lot of the same events in the city as Alex. She always looks stunning and is so sweet.

The event was very well organized and I had a wonderful time! The Honest Tea and Vodka bevs were quite tasty as well!

Be sure to keep coming back to OJ&B as I take NYC by storm!
