Thank you London!

It was a successful evening at the 2nd annual Bovet 1822 presents Brilliant is Beautiful Gala benefitting Artists for Peace and Justice. This is thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended and continues to support APJ. All the money raised directly benefits the “Brilliant is Beautiful” scholarship fund for underprivileged women and girls worldwide.

This year’s Brilliant is Beautiful Award recipient was Petra Nemcova, a beacon of love and light for humanity. The Brilliant is Beautiful Award recognizes extraordinary longstanding commitment toward activism on behalf of the poorest communities on the planet with a particular focus on promoting women’s education, human rights, and leadership.

Throughout the night we were dazzled by the performances by Parson James and Jasmin El-Akabi. Chef to Her Majesty the Queen of England prepared a delicious 3-course dinner and Lord Dalmeny, Chairman of Sotheby’s UK, graced the stage as our auctioneer. Thank you to everyone who made this night so wonderful!

Major thanks to our influential team of co-hosts, including Pascal Raffy, Kim Cattrall, Elizabeth Hurley, Johan Ernst Nilson. Our co-chairs, Caroline Stanbury, Mike & Sukey Novogratz, have been working tirelessly in support of the cause and the event alongside the event committee: Esmeralda Brajovic, Mark & Jane Evans, Camilla Olsson, Lisa Tchenguiz, and Shadi Ritchie. This would not have been possible without their dedication.

The utmost gratitude to our incredible strategic partner and benefactor, Bovet 1822, for your continuous support. Thank you to our other presenting sponsors: Brioni, Vhernier, Armand de BrignacClub des Chefs. Hosting this event at Claridge’s was a dream. And last but certainly not least, we are incredibly grateful to our friends at GSP-UK who produced this stunning event. Thank you for making the dream a reality.

Thank you again, London. Join us next year!
