NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DuJour welcomed modeling legend Cindy Crawford and husband, Gerber Group founder, Rande Gerber to its New York Fashion Week bash at Manhattan's Mr. Purple rooftop bar on Monday night. Celebrity guests included Carole Radziwill of Real Housewives of New York and KISS musician Gene Simmons. Crawford and Gerber caught up with DuJour's Jason Binn to discuss business, beauty, and how to stay authentic.
"I think it's all about authenticity," Crawford says. "Nowadays, with social media, people are even more cued into what goes on. If you're going to be associated with a brand, you have to make it authentic."
"It's a lifestyle, and it's about the authenticity of what that is," Gerber adds. "Obviously we're happy that everyone loves [Casamigos] as much as we do, but that was not the purpose of making it. We made it to drink and for our friends to drink. And that was it," he says of the company he cofounded with George Clooney, and which reportedly sold to Diageo for $1 billion.
