This Is How You Do A Dinner Party

Photographed by Jon Shoer.
On Tuesday evening, we swapped our nightly tradition of kale salad and Scandal reruns for something way better. Our very own L.A. editor, Ali Hoffman, hosted a seriously stylish dinner party at Comme Ça along with the creative forces behind NYDJ. And, let's just say that it wasn't your average sit-down supper.
Power women with major cred in the entertainment, fashion, food, and other revered industries enjoyed mouth-watering, gourmet fare at the Melrose Avenue locale, in between opening remarks from Hoffman and a closing speech from NYDJ's team. The night was an intimate and inspiring representation of what it means to be original and celebrated each trailblazer's accomplishments. Our go-getter attitudes and tastebuds are officially revved up just thinking about the evening — especially that delish pot de crème! Got hunger pangs, too? Get a taste of the party ahead.
