On August 5th, LADYGUNN Magazine celebrated our #9 Love Issue launch at Hollywood hot spot No Vacancy with specialty cocktails provided by Hennessy V.S. The weary and disenfranchised souls who rely on LA nightclubs for entertainment finally got a break from the usual Hollywood horsecrap.
LADYGUNN started off the launch celebration with a private VIP dinner at Madera Kitchen. Curated by Spotify with collaborative playlists, customized menu & crafted libations. After the 5-course feast, celebrity patrons were valeted down the street to No Vacancy where the launch party commenced. Upstairs in a private lounge, beautiful Lola Blanc DJ’ed while guests enjoyed sipping on the specialty Hennessy V.S cocktails with fun names to play off of the LADYGUNN ‘Love’ issue including: the Ladygunn Summer Punch, Lucky In Love Blueberry Mojito and Ginger Romance.

Spotify collaborated with guests to create customized playlists throughout the evening, allowing them to hear their chosen song ring out through the speakers. We’ve got the playlist for you here.
Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Shepard Fairey bottles lined the walls of the speakeasy style bar, blending their brand of class with LADYGUNN’s sass.
Downstairs, KITTEN and Neon Hitch galvanized the crowd with special acoustic performances highlighting their powerhouse pipes to a packed outdoor patio. Throughout the evening, over 800 guests attended the celebration. Among the guests were publicists, media, industry influencers and celebrities including comedian Eric Andre from The Eric Andre Show, Holland Roden, Shane West, Shiloh Fernandez, Robert Pattinson, Jillian Barberie, Tyler Shields, Rumer Willis, Lydia Hearst, Erin Ryder, Renee Olstead, Charlotte Ross, VH1’s Amy Paffrath, Nolan Funk, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Connor Paolo, Max Landis, Alex Turner from Artic Monkeys and various magazine moguls.
