Oh, what a night! BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis 2010

In anticipation of the US Open, BNP Paribas hosted its 11th annual "Taste of Tennis" event at the W New York Hotel.  This star-studded evening, benefiting the New York Junior Tennis League, drew various celebrities encompassing every industry, from the tennis court to the kitchen.

I had the esteemed honor of receiving a media pass to the event, which granted me front-row access to the red, or should I say green, carpet.  Below, please enjoy some of my favorite snapshots from the evening.

Read it & eat,
