Like most of you, we’ll be home with the TV tuned to the 58th annual GRAMMY Awards this evening.
Each year, LA parties harder than usual to celebrate the best in music. Amongst our rounds this year, one of our favorite soirees was NYLON’s Grammy Kick-Off Party at No Vacancy in Hollywood.
The exclusive event featured a portrait studio for invited musical acts and celebrities, with images being auctioned off to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and Heart of Cool. First to arrive were cast members of the Bravo show “Vanderpump Rules,” including Stassi Schroeder, Scheana Shay Marie, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix. BFFs Rumer Willis and Mischa Barton arrived shortly after, following other known names like Joaquin Phoenix, Monty Greer, Casey Affleck, and Kehlani – the 20 year old songstress is amongst the 2016 noms for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Keeping up with our reputation, you could catch us by the bar or on the dance floor. Bubbly was provided by 50 Bleu, WhistlePig, No. 209 Gin, Tres Sietes Tequila and Peroni, while everyone danced the night away to DJ sets by AlunaGeorge and local faves. Parting gifts included MOU Boots, apparel from I love Ugly and sunglasses from Cutler & Gross.
So, while tonight means there may be No More (Grammy) Parties in LA, we want to start a slow clap for the 2016 Nominees From crowd-pleasers like The Weeknd to critics’ favorites like newcomer Andra Day, it’s a pretty strong list this year! The Grammys airs at 5-8 p.m. PST/8-11 p.m. EST. Tune in via CBS or stream online… And, may they odds be ever in Taylor’s favor.
