It may have been summer in the Hamptons, but it was snowing with people dressed in white. This past weekend the BELLA White Hamptons Party took place at the Capri Motel in Southampton. Before the event started, the other interns and I helped sponsors set up their stations under the hot, Hamptons sun. I had so much fun just from working the event; my job during the event was to escort the VIPs from the red carpet to the exclusive VIP area, check in guests at the front door, and to distribute gift bags towards the end of the night. The entire event was filmed by Bravo, and is to be shown on the next season premier of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The BELLA White Hamptons Party was the cherry on top of a wonderful summer internship. I’m sad to say that this is my last day at BELLA. I couldn’t have asked for a more fun and motivated group of people to work with for the past two months. My perception of time got lost somewhere between photo shoots, PR events and street style moments with hardworking people.
Interning at BELLA exposed me to the editorial world. I hope to one day work in fashion advertising, and this internship has taught me a lot about each of them separately. BELLA is my first actual internship, and I know it will open a lot of doors for me. I’ll definitely keep in touch with my BELLA family and try continuing to help out in any way I can, even if I’m 1,000 miles away! My eagerness to assist and support BELLA in the future just shows how much of a positive experience I’ve had with the magazine.
To Courtenay, Dan, Jaclyn, Phil, Vanessa and Dana, I thank you!
