Last Night's Party: All Star Game Edition
Here's photo of Russell Simmons and Maxwell in one of the skyboxes at the All Star game and it pretty much sums up the scene in the suite level last night at Red Bull Arena: moneyed people much more famous than you or I with Blackberries and wine glasses at the ready. Oh and models. Lots of models.
I ran through the suite level at half time to chat with an acquaintance who is baller enough to get invited up there and in the 10 minutes I spent among the beautiful people I clocked Maxwell, Simmons, Tyson Beckford (a trifecta of 1990's black starpower), Ethan Hawke, Gerard Butler, Kelly Ripa and Ed Westwick off of Gossip Girl. And again, models. LOTS of models. Leggy, improbably beautiful models. It was like a casting call for America's Next Top...you know.
I missed the after parties though last night as I didn't get back into the city from the stadium until 1:45am. So I missed the official afterparty at the Highline Ballroom and skipped out on the crew that was heading to 1 Oak. And they sure as s*** weren't going to let me in to Tenjune so I called it a night after a long 5 days of practices, parties and photo ops.
So the celeb-spotted for me ended there. I'm slippin', I know. But if you guys see any photos or videos out there of famous-types from last night though drop me an email. Need my celebrity glory-seeking fix.
