Rock Tradition with Ivanka Trump | Hamilton Jewelers

Hamilton Jewelers chose Ivanka Trump’s leading jewelry collection as their Spring 2014 highlight. Launching in 2007 at her boutique on Madison Avenue, the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry collection focuses on the decades between the 20’s and the 50’s of Art Deco, combining with the structure and elegance of the architecture of New York.

The pieces exhibit the softer, romantic and feminine silhouettes of the early 50’s, harking back to the stars of old Hollywood. The collections appeals to women who have strong sense of themselves, know what they like, value exquisite workmanship and wear even the most important jewelry with a kind of off-handed elegance. By reinventing the best classics of the past cen-tury with a modern twist, Ivanka Trump encourages women every-where to rock tradition.

“The Beasts of the Earth & the Spirit of Man” at Holden Luntz Gallery through April 18th

Worth Avenue’s Holden Luntz Gallery’s latest exhibition, “The Beasts of the Earth and the Spirit of Man,” was conceived by gallery owner Holden Luntz as a way of showcasing photography’s ability to visualize humanity in all forms, as well as the larger world with endless landscapes and creatures.
DAVID-YARROW-Desert-Flight-Amboseli-KenyaTB
“The sense of the show is that we all have some innate, non-visual sense of the world,” Luntz said. “We are kind of citizens of the planet now and I would hope that we, as human beings, have a connection to the earth and interest in preserving it. There are whole parts of the world that remain unknowable and photographers expand the world. If there is this invisible thread that unites us, what is that? Everybody will have a different answer to that question.”
Joyce-Tenneson-LarissaTB
The exhibit showcases the works of photographer David Yarrow, who travels to the ends of the earth in his quest to capture the harsh and endangered beauty of the natural world; Sebastiao Salgado, whose long-term projects are epic studies in humanity; Joyce Tenneson, whose focus is portrait photography that goes beyond the surface, resulting in ethereal images in an attempt to show the inner person; and John Dugdale, who creates poignant and intimate humanistic imagery using 19th century processes and aesthetics.

The Exhibition runs from March 7th to April 18th.

Though the event was strictly private with the guest list limited to close friends of Marzia’s and her co-hosts Lori Stoll and Lori Bernstein, over 30 parents and their children were in attendance. Rosey Alumni including Bill Mann class of 1940; Maribel Alvarez class of ’76 and her son Robert Riva, class of 2007 were also present to answer questions from inquisitive parents. Result: 6 students were signed up on the spot for the Rosey camp and another 8 pending!

Marzia and her co-hosts Lori Stoll and Lori Bernstein understand the value of the multic-cultural experience Rosey offers. “My husband is American. I am Italian and an attorney. We believe it is crucial for our children to speak several languages and grow up in an environment where they are exposed to multiple cultures. It not only opens their horizons, but will provide them with opportunities they otherwise would not have. By allowing them to experience Le Rosey, we rest assured we are offering them a gift and tools for the future,” says Marzia Precoda, Palm Beach Day Academy 2015 Gala Chair.

“Marzia’s generosity and hospitality was key to the success of this event. As a US rep alumni of Rosey, and parent of two alumni, I can’t thank Marzia enough for her hospitality. Families trust her and feel comfortable sending their children for summer camp knowing that Marzia is minutes away.,” says Maribel Alvarez

Guy Cosmo set for World Challenge Racing début this weekend

After starting his career in the open wheel ranks and then moving to sports car racing, Guy Cosmo has long been checking off a wide range of boxes on his career to-do list. And this weekend will see one more item marked off the list as Cosmo is set to make his Pirelli World Challenge debut.

The versatile racer has been tabbed by M1 Racing (http://m1racing.co) to pilot the No. 23 Tampa Bay Jaw Surgery Audi R8 LMS ultra as World Challenge opens the 2015 season at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend.

The visit to the 3.418-mile circuit is not the first for Cosmo, who already knows the way to the podium at the Texas track, having scored a runner up finish in ALMS competition aboard a P2 entry. Cosmo has driven a range of GT machinery on the circuit including testing the Ferrari Challenge 458 platform at the picturesque track. Cosmo opened the year as reserve driver for the visitflorida.com line up at the Rolex 24, and the popular pilot is looking forward to his first taste of World Challenge action this weekend.

“Pirelli World Challenge has seen incredible growth in the past few years and this season in particular will be extremely competitive,” said Cosmo. “The sprint format will be a welcome change for me where I can focus on myself and the car without the compromise of a teammate, and to do all this at a world-class race track like Circuit of the Americas is just fantastic. I am ready to rip.”

The weekend will open up with a test day on Thursday, with Race 1 set for Saturday afternoon and Race 2 on Sunday. Live streaming of the race will be available at www.world-challenge.tv.
