ok- picture sucks- you'll just have to take our word. (or go to wire image)
m21 just returned from the book release party for kelly wearstler's new 'hue' (ammo books) at the avalon hotel, and it was kinda awesome... lots of beautiful people, including kelly (in a short, short, black dress and black boots- hawt as ever), her handsome husband, brad korzen, and their two adorable boys; as well as a random assortment of LA celebs (and if we watched more TV or went to more movies, we'd probably even know their names!), and of course, the usual interior design industry suspects (like moi). one celeb we did recognize was gwen stefani, along with what looked to be most of the other members of no doubt- she sure is purty in person, and smelled good too! (we got stuck behind her for a minute in the crush of the crowd, that's how we know about the smell part). one random sighting was morgan spurlock (supersize me) and his handlebar mustache- kinda weird, but also kinda LA- you never know who will be rubbing shoulders with whom...
added 11/20- image of a redesigned avalon hotel pool/dining cabana, stolen completely without permission from the kelly wearstler inc. facebook fan page (go for more party pictures).
the party also celebrated kelly's redesign of the avalon, with louise nevelson-esque screens and dramatic large scale memphis-esque totem sculptures in the lobby; along with an updated dining area around the pool, with geometric murals and large, round lacquer mirrors inside the cabanas. the avalon was trés chic when it opened- ground-breaking even- but the upgrade was needed after all these years, and of course, the fantastically talented ms. wearstler didn't disappoint with the spruce up- we look forward to cocktails around the pool this summer!
ok, that's it- we 're off to bed. 'nite!
