Sparkly and fabulous in New York City.

Once upon a time, a man named Pierre Cartier was wandering the streets of New York City in search of the perfect destination for the best luxury jewels he had to offer. After a striking encounter with the most beautiful mansion, he knew he had to have it. When he proposed to buy it from the owner, Morton F. Plant, the stars aligned and Plant’s wife fell in love with a pearl necklace from Cartier. In one exchange, the Cartier mansion became a landmark of New York City.

 

September 7th marked the re-opening event of the Cartier Mansion at the corner of 5th avenue and 52nd street. In the midst of New York Fashion Week, an elite cast of celebrities, magazine editors, and renowned chefs gathered at the mansion after several years of renovations for an evening of champagne, diamonds, and exquisite food. In the magnificent six-floor mansion, Martha Stewart, Jourdan Dunn, Chloe Grace Moretz, Leandra Medine, and Neil Patrick Harris could be seen amidst a sea of famous faces dressed in their most elegant party attire. With performances by Ellie Goulding, Kacy Hill, DJ Questlove, Chloe & Halle, and the NYC ballet, it was an evening you didn’t want to miss.

 

 

French-born, New York-based designer, Thierry Despont, is the man behind the spectacular interior design. Recognized for the Ritz Paris and the Plaza Hotel, Despont knows how to create a fantasy with only the best décor to appeal to an elite crowd. One of the most striking rooms is dedicated to Princess Grace of Monaco. With white décor, pale yellow taffeta silk curtains, and paintings of the princess adorning the walls, it’s the perfect backdrop to beautiful Cartier diamonds.

 

Celebrating 99 years, the Cartier mansion has invited iconic figures through its doors for nearly 100 glamorous years. This event was the perfect way to indulge in the Cartier dream and become a part of the romantic story that brought the magic to life. Marking another iconic moment in Cartier’s history, this evening will be remembered for years to come.
