French champagne marque Moët et Chandon and Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music held the second event of their three-city Moët Rosé Lounge tour at plush supper club Bagatelle in West Hollywood on Wednesday evening. The affair included a multi-course, invite-only dinner, followed by a night of hip-hop beats and a near-endless supply of the Lounge's namesake pink bubbly.
White-clad servers made grand presentations of jeroboams of the sparkling wine with actual sparklers attached, to the delight of the A-listers in attendance, including acclaimed actor/rapper (and previous Rosé Lounge host) Common. He discussed balancing his television career (he is currently a co-star on AMC's Hell on Wheels) with his music. "It's going great. I am very enthusiastic about this season. Everyone is in tune with it. I am working on a new album that is due out in the spring." As for the wine-fueled festivities, he declared, "This is a fun night. This is the kind of night I like: good music and good food." Writer/rapper Ne-Yo, who danced and caroused with his entourage for hours, agreed. "Very sexy, very fly. I definitely wouldn't mind visiting again."
Whereas previous events had themes, such as the release of 2012 NYC Lounge host Nas's new album Life Is Good, the WeHo event seemed more an excuse to eat up and get down, although several people with laminates for tonight's MTV Video Music Awards were to be found inside and out. The crowd was young and eclectic, with fashion ranging from couture to oversized T's and baseball caps. Taxis and rented private coaches lined the stretch of La Cienega Blvd., unloading and loading those lucky enough to score a place on the list.
Other notable attendees included singer/actress Teyana Taylor, rapper Big Sean, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member NeNe Leakes and her ex-husband Gregg Leakes, Secret Life of the American Teenager heartthrob Daren Kagasoff and MTV personality Sway Calloway. —Danielle Bacher
