Marie Westwood Magazine, powered by the Ivan Bitton Style House celebrated the 2019 Winter Edition at the historic Cedars Estate on Monday, December 2.
The “Great Gatsby” themed and invite only party started at the door with champagne offered to all arrivals upon entrance. Lavish, early twentieth century inspired attire was donned by guests, models and celebrities depicting the era.
A live performance by Laura Pieri and a fashion showcase featuring Ivan Bitton Style House designers highlighted the festivities as guests partied and danced the night away to the DJ’s rhythm inspired selections. Unveiled were the “Special K” lingerie collection by Madame Methven, designs by Sue Wong and “Exotics” by Cedrick.
The Cedars Estate, currently owned by designer Sue Wong has a long history in Los Angeles and has hosted such great visitors and residents such as Bela Lugosi, Howard Hughes, Jimi Hendrix, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan and Johnny Depp. It is here that Jimi Hendrix allegedly wrote “Purple Haze” and the estate has been featured in several movies including “Sunset Boulevard” and “Easy Rider”.
Special guest Mario Lopez and guests pleased their palate on hors d’oeuvres and champagne while a full bar offered other more adventurous guests a variety of cocktails, mock tails and more. The nearly 8500 square foot home was crowded with partygoers throughout the night and although there are rumors that the estate is haunted, there was nothing scary about the festive interest of fashion, design and a classic Hollywood celebration.
