(NEW YORK) Shoshanna Gruss is a familiar face to those in philanthropic circles, but her notoriety is about to skyrocket thanks to a little lady known as Judith Ripka. This spring, Gruss will appear as one of the models in Ripka's advertising campaign, which aims to reposition the jewelry house as a lifestyle brand. Two other models will be featured--one in her twenties, the other in her forties.
"I was really honored that they asked me to do it," said Gruss. "I am a big fan of their jewelry and have been wearing it for a long time. I always do shoots as myself, and to play "model" was beyond! The hair, makeup, set, and of course, jewelry was so glam. The pieces are so versatile and easy-to-wear." Gruss and Ripka will be host a cocktail in the Tents on February 17 from 12-1 backstage in the IMG Lounge.
