Atlanta fashionistas, Paris Hilton and Ashlee Simpson joined several Americans who made their way Downunder to the Grand Opening of the Marquee at The Star on March 30, 2012 in Sydney, Australia.
Paris, accompanying her boyfriend DJ Afrojack, wore a shimmery silver beaded mini by Australian designer Rachel Gilbert, while Ashlee looked great in her chocolate brown reptile print gown by Roberto Cavalli with a halterneck and frills at the neckline.
Nick Lachey in monochrome black was also attending with wife Vanessa Minillo, who wore a black and white chiffon babydoll dress, apparently a bit on the pregnant side but the dress hid it well (at least in that photograph!).
Twilight’s babe Kellan Lutz was there with girlfriend Sharni Vinson, both wearing black, with Sharni sporting a daring little mini that also had an unusual long train down the back for a fitted sheath!
Other Americans joining them were singer Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, donning a silk charcoal grey suit he teamed with a hot pink shirt (aha, and it looked good!) and actor Wilmer Valderrama who went a tad more casual. The celebs were apparently especially flown to Sydney to add some glitz to the occasion.
Others attending (and wearing some stunning outfits!) included Abbie Cornish, Erika Heynatz, Erin McNaught, Rebecca Breeds, Isabel Lucas, Slash and Perla Hudson.
Celebs and A-listers were treated to 180-degree views of Sydney harbor at the $25 million 20,000 square foot nightclub, which is a collaboration between The Star and the Tao Group, which operates nightclubs in the United States including LAVO in New York and Las Vegas, TAO Las Vegas and Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
The official VIP launch party featured DJ sets from The Black Eye Peas, will.i.am and Afrojack. Enjoy the slideshow!
