Haute Event: Kelly Bensimon Unveils Her Jewelry Line at Lavo

Wednesday night Kelly Bensimon from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City celebrated her new jewelry line Kelly by Kelly Killoren Bensimon at Lavo’s Label Junkie Wednesday at the Palazzo. The leopard print clad model and reality star dined at Lavo with friends after soaking in the rays at Tao Beach during the day.

After dinner the former editor of Elle Accessories headed up to the nightclub and began prepping the models for a fashion show featuring her jewelry, which is available at Intermix at the Forum Shops at Caesars. After the show Bensimon took a bow on the catwalk and then headed to a VIP table where she sipped Champagne and Coronas and took photos with fans.

Her Real Housewives co-star Jill Zarin was in town and popped over to Lavo to surprise the night’s host. After sharing a hug Zarin, her husband Bobby, daughter Ally and several friends sat down to dine at a nearby table where they enjoyed a selection of favorites from Chef John DeLoach.

Upstairs in the nightclub Philadelphia 76er Elton Brand returned for a second night in a row with a group of friends. The NBA star drank sugar free Red Bull and Patron and stayed until 3 a.m.
