Thank you, Polyvore and Polyvorians, for making this a Top Set for June 24, 2011!
The Webby Awards were Monday, June 14, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in the Hell's Kitchen area of New York City. This is (an approximation) of the outfit I wore. (And no, I didn't have that Valentino bag, but it would have been perfect with my outfit!) I was so lucky to have Shedgy and AgathaP go shopping with me on Saturday--they helped me pick out an Ann Taylor suit with a gorgeous white blouse. My husband went with me Monday to Bloomingdales and I got some Coach heels that looked a lot like these. Our team won two Webbys--the People's Voice (thanks for all your votes, Polyfriends!) and the Webby chosen by a panel of international judges. Lisa Kudrow was the host (notice she had similar style! :-) Norah Jones performed, and other celebrities included Anna Wintour, Daniel Radcliffe, Dan Savage, LCD Soundsystem, and Brooke Shields. The Webby speech can only be five words long--Anna Wintour, for example, said "Geek can be chic" when she accepted her Webby award. Ours was "Indiana University educates Webby winners." Speeches were pre-recorded by MLB Studio at the Chelsea Market on Sunday (they just selected the big-time celebrities to deliver their speeches in person at the event.) The gala was live broadcast on Facebook, including the speech I delivered on behalf of our team: (Be gentle! I wish I could do it over again!) My colleagues took pictures at the event and I hope to be able to share a picture of my real outfit on Tumblr soon, sorry I don't have them yet. You can see them on Facebook if you search for BullyGrrl on FB. :-) The celebrity photos here were clipped from the Webby Awards official site.
