How big names celebrate big birthdays
February 28th, 2017
When big names reach big birthdays, the bubbly flows.
Maria Pinto, the fashion designer who’s dressed Michelle Obama and other stars, celebrated at Sepia with about 60 of her pals (the number in honor of her big day).
“Friends came from Spain and New York. It makes you feel appreciated,” she says.
Among the notables–her twin brother, Joseph Pinto.
Are they close? You bet, she told guests. A few years ago, while trying out Match.com for a date, guess whose picture popped up as a perfect match? Joseph Pinto! Funny story, but she quit the site soon after.
The theme of Pinto’s party was Triple D–as in Drinks, Dancing and Dessert.
“They say 60 is the new 40. I’m counting on it,” she says.
