The VIP Reception of H&M at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace caused quite a stir recently. As the curtains opened, the red carpet line grew longer and cameras flashed non-stop. The unveiling of Alber Ebaz for Lanvin’s Collection at H&M spent little time on the racks, which was no surprise since Lanvin’s last collection sold out immediately.

The rush hour was filled with ushers in mad hatter top hats, jugglers, jesters, and show girls in red and white signature H&M feathers. The red carpet consisted of Madonna, Lady Gaga, Cher and Gwen Stefani lookalikes greeting and sharing photo moments with the eager shoppers, look-a-bees and fans.

The three open loft floors were impressive and grand like the mighty Goddesses that stood yards away. The latest Lanvin micro mini played on the wall like art showing us how to wear the new fashion in multi-moods and occasions. You can be the ultimate celebrity in your own looks thanks to Lanvin.

Mannequins and disco balls hung like chandeliers as waiters and hostesses came by with champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Lucky VIP guests were given an instant 25% off.

Although the evening’s guests were given gift bags containing a gentleman’s Lanvin Bow Tie and RED LANVIN lipstick for her, the public was not forgotten on the Official Opening Day. The first 1,000 shoppers were to receive gift cards with a value up to $1000. Put that in your stocking.
