In Pics: “Commander in Chic” Book Release Party

By  | 

On Wednesday night Tracy Reese’s boutique in New York City’s Meatpacking District was the hottest ticket in town as style veteran and beauty industry icon Mikki Taylor celebrated the release of her new book, “Commander in Chic: Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady.” With a guest list that read like the “who’s who” of the beauty, fashion, and publishing worlds, Mikki’s New York City launch event served as the official kick-off for her national book tour.

Notables spotted at the event include: Tracy Reese, Darryl McDaniel (of Run DMC fame) and wife Zuri McDaniel, Michaela Angela Davis, Marvett Britto, Edris Nicholls, Daisy Lewellyn, Soledad O’Brian, Dr. Michelle Callahan, Margeaux Rawson, and Harriet Cole.

“Commander in Chic” will be available November 29th, but you can pre-order it on Amazon now!

Huge congrats to the ESSENCE special events team: Candace Purdie Montgomery, Jovanca Maitland, and Shannon Godfrey Johnson for producing yet another stellar event!

As a New York City storyteller, filmmaker, digital content creator, and PR strategist, Renae Bluitt created "In Her Shoes" to empower and enlighten women committed to realizing their dreams.

    Man, I feel like I’m missing out by not living in NYC. Anywho, I love your hair and I love to see ladies who enjoy invest in their appearance. This looked like a great time. Plus, kudos to Tracy Reese, fellow Detroiter.
