Simon G. Jewelry celebrated style and design with their annual Simon G. Soiree at TAO Las Vegas in The Venetian on Saturday, June 1st 2013. Newlyweds Katrina Bowden and Ben Jorgenson were joined by Paula Abdul, Jenny McCarthy, Mario & Courtney Lopez, Gilles and Carole Marini, Audrina Patridge, Catt Sadler, Holly Madison, Lala Anthony, Peta Murgatroyd and more.
The night of festivities kicked off with comedian and host Dannon Green taking the stage to welcome the guests while acrobats entertained the crowd. Celebrities were all seen wearing their favorite Simon G. Jewelry to the event. Audrina and Katrina were spotted showing off their jewels and trying on each other’s diamonds.
Peta Murgatroyd (wearing David’s Bridal) was spotted sipping the crowd’s favorite Lychee Martini while making her way to the VIP lounge.
Guests at the Simon G. Soiree enjoyed delicious cocktails throughout the night such as The 58th Street Manhattan, which is made with Collingwood, a unique Canadian whiskey, and named after TAO’s original location in Manhattan on 58th Street. Another popular favorite of the night was The Angry Mule, which is a twist on the conventional cocktail made with the Kentucky favorite bourbon, Woodford Reserve, and the 100% Agave premium Herradura tequila, for a unique flavor combination.
Performance painter David Garibaldi captivated the crowd by creating live paintings on stage including a portrait of creator and founder of Simon G., Simon Ghanimian, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Pressley.
The evening concluded with a celebratory finale as Village People performed their classic hit Y.M.C.A and celebrities and VIP guests were showered with confetti.
