The location — gorgeous… The drinks — potent… The crowd — super sexy… The “Oceans 07” Pisces birthday event did not disappoint!!!
Originally started at Bruce Willis’ Spyder Room several years ago, then only models, Patrick Hazlewood and Adam Cringler hosted the 1st annual “Swimming with the Fishes” birthday party. It was a small but chic affair with an all white theme.
The “little gathering” has expanded to include other Pisces e.g. graphic design guru Michelle Foerster, leather designer Aaron Arlinghaus, model and talent manager Brandon Mills, and actress Ashleigh Jennifer Parker (her absence regrettably was due to a serious auto accident, we wish her better). Previous events have been held in such chic New York spots as Ruby Falls, Aer, Upstairs. This year guests enjoyed the amazingly hospitable Hudson Terrace.
This year, the event’s theme was “Glamour Glamour” — and more glamour was delivered. Several guests were bedecked in evening gowns, chic suits, and tuxedos. The glass ceiling was lit with thousands of tiny stars, as guests sipped on the custom designed “Oceans 7″ cocktails. The beats were provided by DJ Jeff Haze, the “new kid on the block” who is making a serious name for himself around New York City.
Guests received the signature necklace created by Haus Leather, which has become a much-sought– after memento of each year’s ‘do’ and were then directed to the center cabana where the celebrants held court. Our fabulous fashion correspondent, Patrick Hazlewood was sporting a classic dinner jacket, bow-tie and dark rimmed glasses… “a Tom-Ford-Moment” that only a classic man like him could pull off. Deadly-chic Brandon Mills rocked a killer black suit by Paul LaFontaine — the gents looked dapper.
The ladies didn’t disappoint either. Dark-haired beauty Fabiana Portolano, of Portolano cashmere-fame, and the enchanting green-eyes, was resplendent in a floor length Tadashi gown with a dazzling train, which contrasted with the BCBG Max Azria short dress and Christian Laboutin heels worn by actress Fiona Kuchina. Other notables present included supermodels Ryan Daharsh, Oliver Bork, Jislain Duval, Tim Revell and Sean Harju, photographer Ren Saliba, actors Thomas Beaudoin, Sam Snyder, and John Vitulli, dancer Ashley Layfield, and Moulin Rouge star Brooklyn Pascoe.
