IN THE SPOTLIGHT
SWATCH This!!

As I approached the doors of the Gansevoort Park Ave for The Swatch's NewGents Collection launch party, I immediately notice a mob of people at the check-in. Realizing that the event is only a half hour in and taking a quick glance at the line, I think to myself that this will either be a snooze fest or a total sweatbox. But to my surprise it was neither. It was sexy and well-executed.

The event was hosted by Nikki Reed of Twilight. Now embarrassingly enough, I had no idea who this girl was, but was later informed that she was the mean vampire sister from the first film of the series. To be honest, she looked much better as a dead person. She had dark hair, which I'm sure earlier in the evening was styled, and then some strange dress that reminded me of an ice skater's outfit. And unless your name is Sasha Cohen, no grown woman should be wearing that.
