OLD HOLLYWOOD MEETS MELBOURNE

November 11, 2019
OLD HOLLYWOOD MEETS MELBOURNE

The Westin’s golden age glitz and glamour ahead of The Melbourne Cup!

How do you welcome the race that stops the nation? When The Westin Melbourne wanted to put on a show-stopping champagne breakfast prior to The Melbourne Cup, LENZO channelled the glitz and glamour of a golden bygone era to create a captivating Cup Day do!

A fixture in The Westin’s annual events calendar thrown by Moët & Chandon, the invitation-only soiree transported guests back to the 1940s and 50s with the help of LENZO’s corporate styling sirens.

Roll out the red carpet (or in this case, glamorous gold!) for the following premier … The Westin’s Old Hollywood themed Melbourne Cup breakfast!

An affair to remember attended by social media starlets and the racing world’s finest colts and fillies, a Hollywood star worthy of the Walk of Fame welcomed esteemed guests at the entrance.

Framed movie star photos and screen siren quotes were the perfect memorabilia to welcome the likes of the original ‘Bachelor’ Tim Robards, Masterchef’s Diana Chan and Khanh Hong, designers Jason Grech and Viktoria Novsk, actress Sharon Johal and beauties Gemma Watts and Carly Lennon.

Taking the hotel’s event to new heights, a Moët & Chandon champagne tower brought a touch of tinsel town to the soiree while A Peachy Affair worked with fabulously feminine roses and painted palm fans to create on-trend floral displays fit for a darling or Hollywood diva.

Vintage entertainment came in the form of Brooks and Baker, dancing up a Fred Astaire storm that echoed the black and white showreel footage on the CEPL Video Wall. VIP Photo Booth, who transformed our recent hens day editorial into a fun festivity fit for a future wifey, brought gallons of glamour to the breakfast with a bespoke photo booth and sequinned backdrop encouraging everyone to strike a pose.

A production of Hollywood proportions, movie star treatment was given to every aspect of the event, down to the decadent desserts masterfully made by the hotel’s in-house chefs.

A magnificent macaron tower stuffed with scented roses featured a myriad of mouth-watering flavours including poached pear in Pinot Noir, while the addition of confit cherry and martini jelly to cheesecakes and chocolate mousse made the household favourites red carpet ready. Not to be outdone, edible handbags featuring quilted fondant and pretty sugar pearls had fashionistas eyes on stalks!
