Speaking of gold! Many well-dressed attendees accessorized their outfits with the latest earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings from LAGOS Jewelry.
With a glass of DAOU Vineyards wine in hand, the crowd snapped selfies at photo activations at watched as the red carpet heated up. Thanks to the zen Moroccanoil oasis lounge, guests could also sit back and relax while trying the brand’s latest hand creams and hair and body products.
