Guests were welcomed by a champagne reception before being seated for an intimate dinner in the penthouse at the Chateau Marmont set against a backdrop of the Los Angeles skyline. The table décor and stationery drew inspiration from the Pantone colour ‘Mint 351 C’ featured in the iconic Paul Smith Artist Stripe.
Guests found their seats dressed with a gift of a classic Paul Smith card holder, holding a personalised place name. Photographs were taken against a wall emblazoned with a key print taken from Paul Smith’s much anticipated AW19 collection.
Notable attendees included Kevin Hart and partner Eniko Hart, model Chrissy Teigen, musical artists Lionel Richie, Meghan Trainor and Mr. Hudson, actor Henry Golding, comedian Neal Brennan, directors Mike Rosenthal and Nabil Elderkin as well as celebrity stylists Dave Thomas & Ashley North.
“It’s great to be in Los Angeles for an event which is honouring John Legend. It’s very humbling that John’s been a genuine wearer of the clothes for so long and in the world that we live in it’s wonderful to celebrate with someone so talented and so down to earth who likes my clothes. And great to be in the company of lots of people who like us both too!” – Paul Smith
