In collaboration with DKNY, PAPER magazine celebrated the 2014 Beautiful People Issue with intimate dinner and exclusive after party with cover girl and singer, Rita Ora. Combining the lifestyle guide of PAPER and DKNY’s embodiment of the Big Apple, the evening was filled with personalities that make New York not only the most sought after city in North America, but the ever bustling mecca where dreams always become reality – unless you don’t try. Including the likes of Bevy Smith, Lynn Yaeger, Scott Lipps, to world renowned business and hip-hop mogul, Russell Simmons, the atmosphere couldn’t be any more New York.

PAPER’s innate sense of showcasing who’s who, before they become who’s who worthy continues to ring true, year after year. And what better way to rush in future tastemakers than to fill the room with like-minded dreamers to follow in their footsteps.

Guests enjoyed fare by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, music by DJ Kiss, and specialty crafted cocktails by Anjou brand, Cointreau.

PAPER’s Beautiful People Issue is available on newsstands now.
