4th Annual Costume Party by Andre Wells

| May 29, 2015 | Parties

Andre Wells outdid himself this year with the EAW Annual Costume Party held at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium. The huge ballroom, usually used for city's largest galas and high profile weddings, was flanked with food stations from Design Cuisine, satellite bars, lounge seating and a dance floor that stayed packed all night. Host Andre Wells was James Brown and made quite the entrance on stage, singing "Get On Up," with the band, “James Brown,” moves and all. This year winners included Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Jones, The Cast of Clueless and costume winner; the witch from Snow White.
