Madame Paulette Celebrates its 55th Anniversary and CEO John Mahdessian’s Birthday

A magnificent crowd flocked to midtown Manhattan’s delectable Beautique to fete two very important events; Madame Paulette’s 55th Anniversary and CEO John Mahdessian’s birthday hosted by Haute Living, Beautique, and “the world’s finest couture cleaner in the world,” Madame Paulette.

The beaming honoree arrived in style with his parents (and founders of Madame Paulette) Anne and Noubar Mahdessian, and girlfriend, Dorinda Medley.

A bevy of guests mingled amidst the restaurant’s stylish backdrop as they nibbled on a fine selection of decadent hors d’oeuvres including sliced beef on brioche with cherry jam and duck millet croquettes with pickled ramps, and sipped on flutes filled with Champagne.

Later in the night, they were also treated to a one-of-a-kind cake crafted by Cake Boss’ Carlo Bakery—a bespoke masterpiece topped by a dapper figurine of John clutching an original restored Winston Churchill general uniform from the 1800s.
