Pat Cleveland's 1920's Themed Book Release Party Was Everything

Last night legendary model Pat Clevend put on a party for the books: A roaring 1920's themed event celebrating the launch of her memoir "Walking with the Muses." Since the 1960's, Cleveland has broken boundaries for women of color in the fashion industry and is true fashion royalty, having been a muse to Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Thierry Mugler and many others. The Ballroom at The Jane Hotel was transformed into a lavish scene, complete with Josephine Baker inspired models dancing on tables. Guests from Wendy Williams to Grace Bol enjoyed cocktails and a special end of the night  performance by Pat herself. Take a peek inside!
