Dressed in a stunning royal blue striped dress from Charlotte Ronson’s collection, the soiree’s ambassador Jaime King kicked off the celebration with opening remarks highlighting the debut of Delano Las Vegas and previewing the night’s festivities.
“I’m really excited because I’m here to introduce Delano Las Vegas,” said King. “Delano is all about style and luxury and that’s what this night is all about.”
The stunning lobby of Delano Las Vegas, with its sophisticated touches of South Beach style and inspiration from the surrounding desert landscape, was transformed into a unique catwalk where world-class models showcased a selection of Charlotte Ronson’s new Spring/Summer 2015 line, previously presented only at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. As models took their places to showcase chic pieces perfectly balancing femininity and edginess, Charlotte Ronson’s sister and celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson took to the turntables.
A surprise pop-up performance by musical group MAGIC! accented the evening. Guests danced to the group’s song of the summer, “Rude,” as well as other captivating reggae-infused beats while sipping on the signature Delano Daiquiri from Franklin and enjoying delectable bites from farm-to-table restaurant, Della’s Kitchen.
Partying until the wee hours of the morning, guests welcomed the newest hotel to the Las Vegas Strip in a defiantly inspired fashion.
