Nothing makes me happier than seeing some of New York’s most well-heeled and chic residents taking time out of their busy days for charity. And no, not just signing a name on a check, but old fashioned, hands-on charity. Hoards of people gathered for the 9th Annual Wrap to Rap Event Hosted by New Yorkers For Children at uber-chic gastropub The Ainsworth in NYC. (Side note: it’s partially owned by Tinsley Mortimer’s hunky, hunky boyfriend Brian Mazza.)
Fashionable folks like superstar designer Rachel Roy, Zac Posen, Mortimer, Zani Gugelman, and Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos wrapped over 1,200 presents for the children’s charity, while DJ D-Nice spun some hip-hop on the 1′s and 2′s. Nothing brightened my rainy day more than seeing people who you’re used to seeing on red carpets helping children in need.
That’s not to say they didn’t look totally fierce though. Check out the Chanel situation adorning Rachel Roy’s arm. If only THOSE were being wrapped for the attendees!
