The stylish assemblage then followed the red carpet to a massive unfinished storefront transformed into a Parisian discotheque by The Events Company for turns on the red dance floor to beats by gorgeous DJ/model MAAD*Moiselle, in from NY. As a special surprise, Brooklyn-based songstress Grace Weber and her band were revealed behind a curtain for a dynamic performance.
