On Wednesday night, Ian Schrager and Arne Sorenson co-hosted an exclusive preview of The West Hollywood EDITION boutique hotel on the Sunset Strip. We spotted Billy Idol, Janelle Monae, Billy Idol, Cee Lo, Diplo, Dylan McDermott, Estelle, Luka Sabbat, Michael Chow, Wilmer Valderamma, Olivier Martinez, Rumer Willis, Scout Willis and too many others to count.
Sparing no expense, a cocktail party on ‘The Roof’ featured DJ Allie Teilz plus a performance by Janelle Monae and a late-night DJ sets from Q Tip and Pookie.
Asked about his new (gorgeous) property, Ian Schrager opined:
“We are in the Mona Lisa business…we aspire to be the best hotel in California; that’s always our approach. With architecture, design, entertainment and service, we try to offer something that people have never experienced before,” said Ian Schrager. “I was lucky enough to be part of West Hollywood’s second cultural rebirth, and now with a whole new wave of hotels, apartments and restaurants, I’m happy to be part of its third renaissance, recapturing Sunset Boulevard’s magic and immortalizing it with that same ethos.”
