Glamorous fine jeweler and legendary party organizers de Grisogono have outdone themselves this time for an extravagant birthday bash for their founder and president, Fawaz Gruosi, complete with lithe models, beautiful actors and the elite from the social clubbing scene.
Held in Sardinia’s Costa Esmerelda at the legendary Billionaire Club in Porto Cervo, the party saw a veritable Milky Way of stars, close friends and industry insiders coming together to mark the birthday of the man they call the “Jeweller to the Stars”.
Dressed in black with a smattering of red and white, the dress code was a timely commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the iconic black diamond and the Black Forever collection. Brand ambassadress and stunning supermodel Bianca Balti, for one, was a sight to behold in a black Dolce & Gabbana dress, set off with a splendid de Grisogono necklace set with 1,318 black diamonds and 129 white diamonds.
Walking through a sexy setpiece made to look like a pair of gigantic lips, two huge photos awaited the lady guests, who were invited to place a symbolic kiss of affection on these pictures, leaving a trace of their crimson lipstick for the birthday gent.The evening was rounded off by a sumptuous Napoleon cream slice pastry topped by candles that Fawaz Gruosi duly blew out, to the sound of boisterous clapping from his friends.
