Also while waiting to gain entrance, i noticed the arrival of former America’s Next Top Model Winner, Jaslene Gonzalez, looking like a gazelle in the New York uniform (all black for you out-of-towners) and fabulous 6 six heels (she was moving too fast to notice who they were by) or should I say stilts. Other noted celebs I saw was the gorgeous Tyson Beckford and super-sweet, Super Stylist, Phillip Bloch.
After getting access to the 8th floor, we were ushered two flight of stairs to the rooftop of 601 W 26th St where Hugo Boss’s office is housed. My fellow blogger and I stepped out into the beautifully balmy evening on the sunset lit roof and was greeted with a great stage which featured the above marquee. On either side were two bars which featured fantastic drinks made with with Belvedere Vodka or Deleon Tequila. My drink of the night was the Mojito and they all were amazing.
The nights events was started by Janelle Monae wearing her signature white and black clothing performing Android
She always captivates a crowd with her energetic performances. Janelle performed two more songs to an excited crowd before we were taken back in time to a great time in music by none other than the much acclaimed DJ Cassidy
I love DJ Cassidy, he always gets a crowd dancing. I love the fact that he plays my favorite ers of music – The 80’s. Yes, I am an 80’s baby and DJ Cassidy had my heart yet again…this DJ definitely saved my life with some damn good songs. After dancing the night away it was then time for what was probably the most anticipated part of the event – the performance of Robin Thicke.
As you can see, the performance was hot – very hot!! The crowd, including yours truly, enjoyed every supercharged second of his performance (other videos will be posted on My YouTube Channel and My Facebook Fanpage). The man is sexy and knows how to put on a show. Check out his exit performance below
After Robin Thicke’s exit, DJ Cassidy came back on the turntables to continue the party and yet again this DJ enchanted the crowd. But of course don’t take my word for it that this party was the place to be, just take a quick look at the photos below
We ended the night not too long after – dancing our way out to Copacabana and as luck would have it, run right into Robin Thicke who very graciously took a photo with us…unfortunately and I blame this on my excitement – must have hit the flash button on my very “sensitive to the touch” camera because there was no flash and the photo came out very, very dark 🙁 but I guess I still have the memory. Oh what a night. Thank you Hugo Boss…see you next year (hopefully)
