Thursday, October 10, PhD Lounge hosted DuJour Media’s celebration of its fall 2019 issue cover star, Clive Owen.
Guests mingled over cocktails, champagne, and wine surrounded by a backdrop of NYC–very fitting for the sophisticated lifestyle embodied by the brand.
DuJour Media provides the latest trends in fashion, design, and beauty to individuals of abundant style, culture, and wealth. The brand’s magazine is circulated to a highly curated audience and its content primarily caters to its affluent readership. This season’s issue not only covers this fall’s trends in clothing, jewelry, and interior design, but includes an interview with Lady Gaga about her unique sense of style as well as an interview with Janelle Monae on her partnership with Belvedere. Issues of the magazine were made available for guests to peruse while enjoying their beverages and taking in the scene.
The guest of honor, Clive Owen, was in attendance along with DuJour Media’s founder, Jason Binn. Owen graces the cover of this season’s DuJour magazine issue, which features a ten-page spread and an insightful look into his career as an actor. Owen began his career in the United Kingdom, and has since received recognition internationally as an Emmy nominee, an Academy Award nominee, and a Golden Globe winning actor. His interview with DuJour offers insights into his perspective on how breaking into the acting world has changed throughout the years, and the role his upbringing played in his career path. “What I have learned is that the best career move is just to be good. Being good is what people react to,” Owen told DuJour as he reflected on how he has avoided being typecast and played a wide variety of roles throughout his career. Amongst the pages of wisdom shared within this season’s issue of DuJour during their interview with Owen, the spread includes several looks ideal for the stylish, mature man. Owen models Giorgio Armani sweaters and a Brietling watch with an ease about him that appears effortless.
Brietling USA’s President, Thierry Prissert, presented the event and also made an appearance on Thursday night, joining Owen, Binn, and Real Housewives of New York star, Luanne de Lesseps on the list of notable guests.
