PRETTYLITTLETHING Starring Ashley Graham
The celebration for PrettyLittleThing staring Ashley Graham was decorated in luscious shades of red, whimsical floral arrangements, and a plethora of moody candlelight. Deep garnet lighting and plush drapery in the same hue enveloped the space, setting the ambience for the evening. There was no set theme for the festivities, just a collection of elements that symbolized the brand’s newest launch: sexy, feminine, bold. My team and I thought it would be fun to create an eclectic grouping of patterns and colors for the furniture and customized throw pillows. There was a smattering of cheetah print, zebra print, metallic pineapples, and traditional candlelit lanterns along with red Chinese lanterns suspended above.
Trees and potted plants were brought in and around the venue and its attached patio area, creating an atmosphere that mimicked the tropical wallpaper of the private dining room. The intimate room was decorated with a glass coffee table, a luxurious green velvet couch, leopard-printed carpeting, gleaming gold ottomans and Chinese hanging lanterns; it was like a beautiful, wild dream and perfect for posed photo ops. Another setup that made for an ideal photo backdrop was the damask-covered wall with floral creations in blush and vanilla affixed.
Revelers mingled, enjoyed taking candid shots with the paper handheld fans, reading the PLT personalized fortune cookies, and took a few minutes to partake in the hookah bar offered. Dancers wearing large royal-esque headpieces and attire from Pretty Little Thing kept the entertainment fun and lively as the later acts prepared for their performances. Ashley Graham looked gorgeous wearing a print dress with a thigh-high slit and thin shoulder straps as she introduced ballad singer Brian McKnight, and later, another favorite R&B artist, Miguel.
To help the voluptuous Sports Illustrated model celebrate her collaboration with PrettyLittleThing, celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens, , and Ally Brooke, Megan Barton-Hanson and Nelly attended the event to show their support.
