Last week, I joined Giuseppe Zanotti and team in California to celebrate the re-opening of his Beverly Hills boutique. This celebration happened to be on my birthday, so it made for a fabulous way to mark another year…

The Store:

The expanded space is now three times larger than the original boutique on Brighton Way. The spirit of the brand is reflected in the extensive renovations. Classic and modern elements are mixed seamlessly, just as with the designer’s pieces. The new space is the perfect setting for perusing Giuseppe’s most sought after designs. Not only does the store include shoes for men and women, but it also stocks his beautiful jewelry, handbags, and ready to wear pieces. This boutique serves as the designer’s West Coast flagship.

The Celebration:

As I’ve come to expect from the Giuseppe Zanotti team, the celebration was nothing short of fabulous! Giuseppe hosted a private in-store cocktail reception. Guests included many of his celebrity friends and clients like Naya Rivera, Katharine McPhee, Laura Vandervoort, Kid Cudi, Alexandra and many others. DJ Harley Viera-Newton provided great music all evening. The show-stopping moment, though, happened when Houston’s own Beyonce graced us all with her presence. She was a sight to behold and a truly gracious guest as she toured the store with Giuseppe.

After the in-store cocktail party, we journeyed to the Sunset Town in Los Angeles for an exclusive dinner on the terrace.

Shop the Shoes:

Interested in shopping the celebrity shoes? You’re in luck, as I’ve gathered all the beauties together here:

At the end of the evening, I was lucky enough to receive the most beautiful birthday gift — a stunning necklace. You can expect to see that featured here soon, of course! The evening was a huge success for the designer, and it was a magical experience for all. Thank you for including me, GZ!

Best wishes to my GZ family now and always!


Have a great day,
