An effervescent crowd of friends, family, and dedicated supporters came together to toast the talented makeup artist Gucci Westman on her much-awaited launch of Westman Atelier. Her thoughtfully curated collection combines efficacy and clean formulations in products that are luxurious to the touch and provide the look of dewy, radiant, and healthy skin. After kicking off the evening at Duryea’s in Montauk, Gucci and longtime friend Julianne Moore reminisced about the day they met on the set of a photo shoot—a not-to-be-named photographer asked Westman to make Moore look unnaturally tan, and the two women, instinctively trusting of each other, went the route of clean, natural, and glowy with brilliant results.
Many guests at the dinner, including Jessica Seinfeld, Ashley Brokaw, Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims, and Grace Coddington, swapped stories of their Gucci Westman makeup experiences. Even Richard Perry chimed in and playfully tried out the Lit Up Highlight Stick, not unlike a linebacker prepping for a luminous blitz.
Nobody was more appreciative of the hard work behind the launch of Westman Atelier than Gucci and her husband and now business partner, David Neville. The two stood before their beaming dinner company, proud of their work and excited about what’s to come for Westman Atelier.
