Honored to co-host our inaugural “Runway for the Arts” party hosted by Pattinson & H.E.R. at the Academy Museum.
Renowned photographer and philanthropist David LaChapelle took home the prize for being the overall winner, while I was the runner-up.
I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to be part of this prestigious celebration.

I met Pattinson the night before the event, and thought she was a really lovely person. We talked about fashion, art and music.
We then met up the following evening at New York City’s premier art gallery, MOMA.
David LaChapelle, born on November 1, 1957, is a Los Angeles native and New York City based photographer, who has received major awards for his work including the New York Times Photographer of the Year Award and the Los Angeles Times’ Pulitzer Prize.
He has taught at institutions like the Museum of Contemporary Art, the New School, Columbia and the American College of Art.
