Photo Gallery: MAGIC highlights include Tommy Lee, $37,000 handbag
The King Baby store opened in the Wynn last night as part of MAGIC’s week of fashion festivities. Owner Mitchell Binder brought in his good pal Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee for the opening of his first standalone, and now flagship, retail store. Comic Andrew Dice Clay also turned up with his new bride Valerie Vasquez, and photographer Denise Truscello captured all the action.
Tommy took over house night at Blush in the Wynn to host the King Baby grand opening after-party. Tommy arrived after 11 p.m. with girlfriend German-born singer Sofia Toufa and a bright red lipstick print on his cheek. He entertained clubgoers by playing a drum machine and providing video mixes on the Blush screens alongside DJ Aero, who spun the wheels of steel. Guests included Mitchell, skateboarder Danny Way, DJ Scotty Boy and guitarist SmittyonSteel. Tommy’s drinks of choice were vodka cranberries and Veuve Clicquot champagne.
Creative Recreation/Hudson Jeans @XS
Victor Drai’s XS in the Encore was the playground of Creative Recreation/Hudson Jeans’ MAGIC party. Platinum blonde bombshell Holly Madison, the star of Planet Hollywood’s Peepshow, and friends partied at a VIP dance floor table, and UFC fighter Chuck Liddell and Playboy Playmate Athena Lundberg (Miss January 2006) also unwound inside the world’s No. 1 nightclub.
Holly also showed up at S.L.A.T.E.’s MAGIC party at Vanity in the new HRH Tower at the Hard Rock Hotel. Josh Madden, the brother of Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, manned the turntables as guest DJ, and Holly tweeted Benji -- the duo have been flirting for a few months now -- to ask where he was hiding!
Fendi opens @Crystals
Fendi opened in the retail palace Crystals in MGM CityCenter last night as a salute to MAGIC Fashion Week and as a fundraiser for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s Keep Memory Alive. Guests were bowled over by the marble reproduction of Rome’s Trevi Fountain that dominates the store with an all-Roman influence, and it was only a matter of minutes before they were throwing nickels and dimes in for good luck. Fendi also is installing an exterior etching of other Roman landmarks.
Guests also were KO’d by the exclusive Trevi Fountain Peekaboo bag especially designed as a Las Vegas exclusive (with a numbered gold plate inside it). Only 20 were made, and three promptly sold at $4,550 a piece. But that’s nowhere near the most expensive handbag. Amanda from Fendi showed off the 24-carat gold python skin handbag that sells for $36,900!
