Pomegranate Cocktails at the Rebecca Minkoff After Party Hosted By POM Wonderful!
Pomegranate was the thing at Rebecca Minkoff’s after party, hosted by POM Wonderful!
Rebecca Minkoff may be incredibly pregnant, but that’s not stopping her from having a good time! The designer was the center of attention at the after party for her Merceds-Benz Fashion Week show on Monday night.
Held in the Rose Bar at the ritzy Gramercy Park Hotel in New York, the after party celebrated Minkoff’s Fashion Week success. And to make a good night even better, the shindig was hosted by POM Wonderful—which meant that guests such as Nikki Hilton, Audrina Partridge, and Elizabeth Reaser got to enjoy some tasty pomegranate drinks created especially by the mixology masters at Prohibition and mixologist Dale De Groff.
