Garden Party

The Party After a seven-month-long renovation, Van Cleef & Arpels unveiled its Rodeo Drive store’s updated look during an intimate cocktail party. Things kicked off behind the boutique in a garden constructed exclusively for the event. Attendees were treated to a never-before-seen performance from L.A. Dance Project choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, Natalie Portman’s husband and Black Swan co-star. The Players President and CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels Nicolas Bos, Benjamin Millepied, Helen King, Tina and Brian Goodman, Margo and Robert Feinberg, Tanya Gill, Jeannie Parker, Sybil Chao The Highlights Following the outdoor performance, dancers grabbed a few guests and sashayed them into the store. Inside, the crowd soaked up the art deco building’s new modernized interior while ogling glass cases filled with exclusive items created to commemorate the expanded space. While the evening featured both estate and fine jewelry, the label’s red enamel FĂ©erie watch was a particularly hot ticket. As was Mr. Millepied. Photos courtesy of Donato Sardella/Wireimage
