Star Studded Summer Sizzle BVI Launch Party in NYC

This week, the Summer Sizzle BVI Launch Party took place at the Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York. Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett, hosted the event, and per usual, they both looked stunning.

In addition to good company and great conversation, attendees also got an opportunity to enjoy the refreshing taste of Myx Moscato. Now, I’m usually not a moscato girl, but after trying it, I’ll definitely be indulging more often.

Fashion and media influencers included Ty Hunter, Raquel Smith, Cori Murray, Demetria Lucas D’Oyley, Memsor Kamarake, Ashunta Sheriff, Satchel Jester, and more.
