Tiffany’s Blue Book Ball — the Jazz Age returned to New York City as Tiffany & Co. launched its inaugural “Blue Book Ball” at Rockefeller Center on April 18, 2013. Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Jessica Biel, Michelle Williams, Megan Hilty, Sarah Jessica Parker and more celebrities were among the 400 clients and guests from around the world summoned for the roaring twenties showcase. The event, inside a 31-foot-high Tiffany Blue Box covering the Rockefeller Center’s famous 15,000 square foot ice rink, honored producer and director Baz Luhrman, costume and production designer Catherine Martin and stars from The Great Gatsby. Tiffany’s diamonds and pearls adorned Hollywood’s leading ladies of the Jazz Age, and they still do today.
