Hollywood Revels in "Garden of Wonder" by Perrier-Jouët

On Thursday night, October 26, renowned theatrical director and nightlife impresario Simon Hammerstein brought a taste of the Concrete Jungle to the West Coast, presenting Garden of Wonder by Perrier-Jouët, an immersive nightlife experience and a wonderland of the senses. Transforming a private residence in West Hollywood, the event drew a trendy L,A. and star-studded crowd. Guests of the event included Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Hart, Usher, Elon Musk, The Crown's Matt Smith, Stephen Dorff, Jack Huston, among many others.

Victoria's Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio (wearing Marcell von Berlin and shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti) and Jessica Hart (wearing a dress by White Fox) were seated at a private table with flowing glasses of Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Rosé. At the same private table, newly single Elon Musk and Hart were cozying up and whispering to each other in a corner hiding from photos. Usher got in the wild spirit, spotted sporting a mirrored mask and snapping photos in a life-sized birdcage, never without a glass of champagne in hand. Throughout the night, he and Hammerstein chatted about an upcoming project they are collaborating on.

At the peak of the party, an ensemble of performers led by a percussionist paraded through the venue with luminous bottles of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque, finishing at Ambrosio and Hart's table. Ambrosio was mesmerized by the show, and Hart kissed Hammerstein on the cheek to congratulate him on a beautiful evening.
