Very few people are able to live the life that they were destined to live without second guessing every move that they make. Bevy Smith is one dynamic woman that has lived her life happily while simultaneously defining the way that a generation lives and interacts.
Best known for “Dinner With Bevy,” Ms. Smith’s life experience extends way beyond her luxurious dinner parties. The Harlem native exudes confidence and is a walking definition of the word “success.” Sitting down and chatting with Bevy made me feel like I was talking to an aunt that is full of wisdom, advice, and love to spare. At 43-years-old, Bevy’s journey to becoming the successful is nothing short of unique and divine.
To give you a little taste of who Bevy Smith is here are some key facts about her life on and off the clock.
1. She is a LIFESTYLE MAVEN. Don’t call her a publicist or a party planner because that is not what she does.
2. “Dinner With Bevy” was a concept born after running into Omarion as she was leaving a party. Bevy noticed the obvious separation between the urban world and the mainstream world and she wanted to merge them together so that urban stars could gain the same exposure as their mainstream counterparts. This led to her first dinner party that celebrated Musiq Soulchild.
3. She worked as the Fashion Ad Director at VIBE and then later at Rolling Stone.
4. On top of being a lifestyle maven, Bevy is also a freelance writer and TV personality. Her work has been seen in VIBE and Paper Magazine, and she can be seen on BET, Oxygen, and the CBS Morning Show to name a few.
5. She always accessorizes with a bangles, necklaces, and a seasonally appropriate fragrance.
Aside from these tidbits about Bevy, it’s important that you know that she’s also a philanthropist that works with NYC’s GEMS (Girls Education & Mentoring Services). This organization was featured in the documentary “Very Young Girls” and focuses on helping girls that have worked in the commercial sex industry. GEMS aides them in their educational goals and helps to build their self-esteem so that they can become successful women in today’s society.
Like Tracey Ferguson from Centric’s “Keeping Up With the Joneses,” Bevy Smith is a dynamic woman that has contributed immensely to our community. If you’ve ever looked for a blueprint on how to be successful, never hesitate to look at Bevy.
