Attendees started the evening by rolling up in Volkswagen ID.4 cars, Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV and the brand’s first electric world car. Guests dressed to impress in full alice + olivia looks to fit the “Somewear Over the Rainbow” theme.
Lively conversations took place in between dancing to the tunes of DJ Ty Sunderland. Barrymore held court with Bendet, who was the best Prom Queen of Pride. Gooding took them both in a warm embrace as the cool breeze blew over the dance floor. The sheer glee of the moment was captivating.
Specialty ginger margaritas provided by Casamigos were enjoyed and in the ‘pink’ section along with The Palm by Whispering Angel rosé and ‘frose.” Guests also sipped on Chandon’s new Garden Spritz, a delectable house-made ‘Garden liqueur’, as well as the brand’s Classic Brut. Dylan’s Candy Bar provided a rainbow array of candy for guests to enjoy and take home, and nibbled on other rainbow sprinkled sweets by Milk Bar and Mini Melanie’s.
Guests also posed for photos against a colorful graffiti wall, and received personalized robes that matched the hero print of the VW car.
For a little glitter and glam, guests stopped by the Stila table to apply glittering makeup from the brand, which accentuated the colorful looks of the evening! Missleidy the Plant Lady, dressed in full regalia, assembled prom-perfect corsages & boutonnieres.
The night benefited the the Ali Forney Center. Thanks to alice + olivia for bringing so much beautiful color back into our lives. Happy Pride.
