It's Anna Delvey's birthday and she can celebrate how ever she wants to.
So, what did the unconventional bash entail? Tons of catching up with friends.
"I was grateful to have such incredible support from my NYC friends to be able to celebrate at my apartment in a way that I haven't been able to for several years," Delvey (a.k.a. Anna Sorokin) exclusively told E! News. "I'm so grateful to be in NYC where we could all come together for a really fun night."
For the occasion, Delvey was styled by Altorrin, with her hair and makeup done by Avery Golson at See Management.
Her invite-only event, presented by Profanity Paraffins, also included a champagne toast provided by UNRATED Wines and a seasonal tasting menu created by Chef Ryan Hackney of Citizens & Culture—a definite departure from Delvey's previous birthday behind bars.
"It was difficult to celebrate on my birthday last year due to both being quarantined for COVID and to the permanent uncertainty of my situation," Delvey, who was released from a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center last fall, recalled. "I was laser-focused on the development of my detainment status and working towards pursuing a release."
In 2017, Delvey was charged with defrauding banks, hotels and other New York City elites into financing her extravagant lifestyle by pretending she was the daughter of a German oil tycoon. Two years later, she was convicted of attempted grand larceny, larceny in the second degree and theft of services, though she was acquitted on two additional charges.
Since then, Delvey—who now wears an ankle monitor—has been using her time to work on her art and explore other endeavors. Recently, she announced Delvey's Dinner Club, a reality show focused on her at-home dinner parties as she continues to face deportation proceedings.
