Co-Owner of Decades Christos Garkinos in McQueen with Rachel Zoe in vintage Versace from Decades

Hello loyal Decades blog followers. I’m so excited to file my first-ever blog post about an event that was in the words of the honoree…amazeballs!

I was a host at the event last night honoring one of Decades’ favorite gals-Rachel Zoe. She was chosen to receive the inaugural visionary award by the LA Gay and Lesbian Center benefitting the Homeless Youth Services.

Held at the gorgeous Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, Rachel was bestowed her award by close friend Anne Hathaway.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after their speeches , which were accompanied by inspirational words from Aaron Sorkin (congrats on today’s Oscar nomination) and Kelly Osbourne.

We raised hundreds of thousands for the charity. And looked tres chic while doing so!

Rachel wore a vintage early ‘90’s Versace (Gianni era) velvet gown with gold buttons and silk details from Decades. She looked gorg. And gave a sweet shout out to Decades from the stage.

Also from Decades, Anne wore a vintage Dior gown with white lace trim from the early ‘90’s from the era of Gianfranco Ferre.

And lastly, Ashley Madeckwe, star of my favorite television show Revenge (is anyone else obsessed with it like me?!), shone in a modern Alaia flounce dress from Decades.

And, well, moi,---McQueen head to toe, except for my croc bow tie from Teddy Tinson—Cameron turned me on to his line, and my collection of his ties has grown exponentially.

There ya have it. My first post of hopefully many to come. Cameron would you come back from Paris already!
