Dinner With Helena Christensen & Garance Doré? Don't Mind If We Do

Photographed by Zac Waldman.
We've crossed paths with lots of industry players in our day and have been humbled and starstruck more times than we can count. But, Thursday night definitely ranks way up there in our list of surreal, can't-believe-it's-happening moments.
Our very own EIC Christene Barberich along with the creative masterminds behind NYDJ hosted an exclusive dinner at Soho's Charlie Bird with Helena Christensen, Garance Doré, Susan Joy, and a handful of original, game-changing women in fashion, entertainment, and other creative industries. Between Christene's opening remarks, stracciatella cheese, and chocolate budino, each woman was celebrated for her amazing accomplishments and being a true original.
A model and photographer on one side of the table, a fashion multihyphenate on the other — there was definitely food and style for thought. Click ahead to get in on all the action.
