Origins,a division of cosmetics giant Estee Lauder, used the event to raise awareness for charity:water , an organization that endeavors to provide every citizen of the world with clean, safe drinking water. September saw them pushing into India, and they're also working in Africa and Central/South America.
Hosted by 'Shameless' actress Emmy Rossum, the stylish party was set against the backdrop of the JIMMY lounge's spectacular views of downtown NY. Orchids and botanicals were arranged on tables throughout the lounge, and the open bar flowed with glasses of prosecco and delicious mojitos. Gorgeous waitstaff passed trays of shrimp gazpacho, cones of jalapeno cheese fries, and Ritz cracker crab cakes.
