The stars were out in force on Wednesday (January 16, 2013) for the grand opening of Las Vegas’ hottest new restaurant, Andrea’s. George Clooney’s current squeeze Stacy Keibler stepped out solo, while Twilight actress Ashley Greene, Krysten Ritter and model Kate Upton also turned up of the occasion. Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood was the guest DJ for the evening.
Andrea’s is the latest enterprise from hotel mogul Steve Wynn and wife Andrea, specializing in Asian cuisine. Though we were a little surprised to see Keibler without her boyfriend George Clooney, it’s perhaps no surprise to learn that The Descendants star launched his own tequila Casamigos at Andrea’s last week. It’s shaping up to be “the place to be seen” in Las Vegas – something highlighted by the guest-list on Wednesday. It’s billed as the first Wynn restaurant to be “integrated into a club experience,” and its location, adjacent to the Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub complex, makes it perfect for a light bite, a drink and a dance. Las Vegas DJ Steve Angello, of Swedish House Mafia fame, has been hired to direct the music programme. He will produce exclusive music mixes designed to fit with the restaurant’s “state-of-the-art audio and lighting system,” by the award winning John Lyons Systems.
As for the food, Andrea’s top chefs will be serving up prepared meats, seafood, noodles, sushi and dim sum, as sampled by the celebrities on Wednesday. Keibler showed up wearing a relaxed looking grey dress, with black sandals and metallic clutch bag, while Ashley Greene opted for a tight leather top with leather shorts and black heels. Buxom model Kate Upton showed her demure side with an elegant black and white dress, with a green clutch bag and cream heels.
Two of the better dressed stars at Andrea’s were actress Krysten Ritter and Elijah Wood. The stunning actress – known for Confessions of a Shopaholic – wore a conservative looking black dress with bead effect and black heels. As the evening’s DJ, the pressure was on Wood to look pretty hip and he did just that, teaming a gold shirt buttoned at the top, fitted black blazer jacket, skinny jeans and brown brogues.
Of course, a celebrity event wouldn’t be complete without a fashion disaster, so it was great to see Australian musician and DJ Havana Brown getting it all wrong in an extremely short gold dress, thigh high boots, and a black print bandana.
