Last night, yours truly, in cahoots with Hudson Jeans, invaded West Hollywood's Satine Boutique for You Will Be Scene: 10 Years of Flaunt Magazine's Nighttime Escapades. Our fabulous host, Constance Cooper, floated around the packed house as partygoers flitted between the vodka and tequila bars, pausing to thumb through Satine's racks and squeeze in a few dances amongst the tangle of limbs on DJ Jimi Hey and DJ MK's dance floor.
Revelers were treated to a heavy dose of nostalgia while nibbling on short rib skewers and truffle-infused brie tartlets, as a vast collage of paparazzi-style shots of Hollywood's past and present papered Satine's walls and windows, pulled straight from the pages of Flaunt's Obscene City sections. Pre-Mean Girls Lindsay Lohan smiled sweetly down at our lovely guests as they marveled and giggled at the various candids - Pharrell mugging for the camera, Kate Hudson showing off her insane abs in that amazingly awful '90s midriff two-piece ensemble, a bleary-eyed Anna Nicole Smith giving her best duck lips before Facebook and sorority girls made that an actual term...
Afterwards, our more nocturnal faithful stumbled over to the Writer's Room for another round of cocktails. If you were lucky you scored some drink tickets after an overzealous Flaunt-er made it rain, causing a ruckus on the Satine front sidewalk. If you weren't, well there's always next time.
