eXhilarating. eXciting. eXtraordinary. It's safe to say that X marked the spot at L'Officiel Singapore's 10th anniversary party last night. Held at Zouk's fancy new digs at Clarke Quay, the bash was everything you'd expect – and more – from Asia's most provocative women's magazine.
And in case you're wondering why Rated X?, get clued in as our Deputy Editor, Justin, explains All About The X here.
Gettin' The Party Started
Setting the scene at Zouk was life-sized dazzling X embellished with crystals from Swarovski, the evening’s Official Jewellery Sponsor – because that's how you make an entrance. Inside, guests were treated to a lineup of different stations to get them in the party mood: ice-cold beers and specially-crafted cocktails from Heineken; fresh juices from Joe & The Juice; a makeover beauty counter by Clinique; a DIY scent bar by Oo La Lab; an interactive Instangraphy gif booth, and live illustrations by Alessia Landi, who drew guests in hot-off-the-runway looks from Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2017 collection.
With over 700 guests in attendance – not counting the dozens of gatecrashers – the party was heaving with beautiful, fashionable party-goers before the night had even begun. Even better: many turned up in their finest Rated X party garb.
A Grand Entrance
The hightlight of the evening was the highly anticipated debut of the L'Off Squad. After getting primped and pampered in a luxury suite at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the girls – comprising Rozz Lee ((who was also the evening’s host), Tabitha Nauser, Sonya Davison, Karisa Sukamto, Natalia Ng, Calista Cuaca, and Tan Min-Li – cruised up to the party venue in a convoy of Lamborghinis driven by the cars’ owners from the Lamborghini Club. L'Officiel Singapore's Deputy Editor, Justin Cheong, interviewed the ladies as part of our L'Off TV (streamed live by our multimedia partner, ODEUM). Mae Tan, Nicolette Yip and Paige Parker who complete the L’Off Squad weren’t in town, so they gave their birthday wishes in pre-recorded videos played during the party Zouk.
How do you keep 700 guests entertained? With show-stopping performances, that's how. In between thumping sets by DJ Thomas, Tabitha Nauser wowed the crowd with a live performance of her hit single 'Bulletproof', while Natalia Ng sang and gyrated her way through the performance of her single, FLY. In keeping with the night's provocative Rated X theme, the foxy ladies from The Brass Barre put on sizzling, gravity-defying pole-dancing routine.
CEO of Heart Media, Olivier Burlot, L'Officiel Singapore's Managing Editor, Grace Tay, and the rest of the team took to the stage and toasted to an amazing decade of the magazine with cake, champers, and confetti.
To cap off the festivities, guests walked away with fab prizes from our lucky draw, which included a Bulgari Serpenti Forever bag, a two-night stay at Sri Panwa Phuket, a three-night stay at Shinta Mani Hotel, Kim Robinson hair and brow services worth $1,600, four Betsey Johnson bags from Porter International, a $500 voucher from Avec Amour, Clinique beauty and skincare products worth $500, a Chloé Love Story hamper worth $333, Escentials skincare products worth $644, a $500 Lab Series men's skincare hamper, and a luxury timepiece from Charriol worth $3,200.
Special thanks to all our fab party guests and generous sponsors!
