The Party
The Costume Council of the Chicago History Museum welcomed world-renowned businessman Alberto Milani, CEO of Buccellati, for his innovative lecture Buccellati: Timeless Beauty in Today’s Luxury Society. The Italian innovator shared his unique experiences in the luxury-jewelry industry.

The People
The host committee—Susu Block, Melissa McNally, Stuart Mesires, Mel Muoio, Pauline Sheehan and Noren Ungaretti—welcomed more than 50 guests to a luncheon featuring the divine culinary creations of Executive Chef Chris Marchino at the magnificent dining room of Spiaggia. The menu included mouthwatering baby arugula salad drizzled with 8-year aged balsamic and Rushing Waters trout topped off with a pairing of herbs and lemon.

Best in Show
The highlight of the afternoon: Attendees traveled a few blocks to the Buccellati space, sipped prosecco and dined on petite fours while admiring the breathtaking jewelry pieces. A simply stunning (and inspiring) event! –Photos by James Warden, Five Lake Arts
