A Haute Holiday Party!
Winter White: Nick Verreos, at the Rachel Zoe ZOE Media Group Launch PartyWell kids, the Holidays are upon us and that means one thing: Holiday Parties!!! And last night, I was invited to a very fabulous one. The one-and-only Rachel Zoe celebrated the holidays in style with the launch of the ZOE Media Group! The Zoe Media Group is a leading women's media company with a targeted audience that expands across fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Its flagship, The ZOE Report, envelops many areas such as apparel, accessories (AccessZOEries) beauty (Zoe Beautiful), jewelry and lifestyle. And naturally, Team Zoe (love that!) curates all of its content. It's a One Stop Fashion-Beauty-Fabulous Rachel Zoe World! Now, let's discuss THE PARTY: The Invitation began with 'Tis The Season To Be Glam, so of course, I decided to be a little glam and bust out my brand new ASOS off-white with black shawl-collared lapel "Dinner Jacket" for this soiree, black skinny jeans and yes, my "Cuban Heel" boots (that's what my friend's call them!). The ZOE Media Group Launch Party was held at the exclusive Sayers Club (photo above) in the heart of Hollywood. The atmosphere: leather couches, an open lounge area, a well-stocked bar, and cute Henley-shirt with skinny suspenders and even skinnier jeans-wearing bartenders--well, who could ask for more? As the very chic guests mingled, enjoyed the yummy vegi steamed egg rolls and tuna canapes, DJ Kelly Cole was spinning the music (DJ Samantha Ronson also did a special set).
Sequined Star: Nick Verreos with Rachel Zoe, ZOE Media Group Launch Party, The Sayers Club HollywoodThe Star of the night, Rachel Zoe, was holding court greeting guests and being the Hostess with the Sequined Mostess--looking Glam-tastic in a Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati Spring 2009 maroon sequined cropped-pant jumpsuit.

Only she could GIVE YOU sequins huney! As my friend would say: "She served it"! The fab party was "presented" by Fiat and yes, in case you were wondering the Fiat 500 by Gucci was parked outside in front of The Sayers Club for all guests to see--along with a Fiat Gucci Girl--sporting a white Gucci sheath dress and Gucci scarf. PS: I sooo want take the hubcap "GG" logos of the car, and turn them into belt buckles!!
It's Joeyyyyyyyy!!!! Joey Maalouf and Nick Verreos, ZOE Media Group Launch Party, The Sayers Club HollywoodFinally, a big highlight for me was running into my good friend, Joey Maalouf--Rachel's hair-and-make-up bestie. I hadn't seen him in a while (he's been busy with filming The Rachel Zoe Project, as well as running his Maalouf Salon Empire!). Something about him was "different": tonight, he was sportin' his usually semi-pompadoured hair slicked back. He told me he was growing his hair out. Loving the look Miss Joey. Oh yes, and I wanted to take his Reiss scarf--it was very cute! Happy Glam Holidays Rachel Zoe and ZOE Media Group--Thanks for inviting me to a FAB--and very Haute--Holiday bash!
