The Martha Stewart Moment at the AIGA Gala

It was only a few months ago that the boozy reports from AIGA’s Design Legends Gala trickled in to our eager UnBeige ears. Although we seem to have forgotten most of the highlights, one in particular has stuck with us. Apparently, a certain Martha Stewart delivered the biggest hit of the night while accepting the Corporate Leadership Award for Martha Stewart Omnimedia. And now, we have the video (scroll down, mid-page, that’s it…click).

Although it’s a real treat to see Medalists Bruce Mau, Ellen Lupton and Ed Fella get their awards, along with Georg Olden Jr. accepting for his father, Georg Olden, the comedic trio of Kurt Andersen, Gael Towey and Martha Stewart are an unstoppable, wildly entertaining team. The video is over 18 minutes long but it includes some pretty pictures of Martha Stewart Living at the beginning and a hilarious, heartfelt story about how Andersen almost ruined Stewart’s life. She does say the j-word, too.
