2016 looked more like the 1920s at designer Sue Wong’s lavish New Year’s Eve Party in Los Angeles.
The party’s theme was Old Hollywood glamour. Models walked through the party wearing Sue Wong evening wear, which has a classic Hollywood feel, and headdresses with a roaring ‘20s panache. The event took place at The Cedars, Wong’s ornate home which features frescoed ceilings and antique furnishings.
Guests were also treated to an exclusive Sue Wong Fashion Retrospective Installation at the party, which featured 24 gowns from Wong’s history as an evening wear designer. Guests included Larry Namer, founder of E! Entertainment, actresses Alice Amter of The Big Bang Theory and Sofia Milos of CSI: Miami. Congressman Ed Royce reportedly stopped by the party where rock musicians played Led Zeppelin and John Lennon along with New Year’s Party standard Auld Lang Syne.
Opera singers Oleksandra Hrabova and Michael Peer were among the musicians who serenaded Sue Wong and her guests. Guests brought in the New Year with Moreno BHLV Champagne,Toast Vodka, Purple Haze liqueur, Hint Water, Kangen Water and Downey's Desserts.
