Party On: Vince and Friends Toast the Holiday Season in the Hollywood Hills

Creative director Caroline Belhumeur opened her hilltop home for an elegant evening soiree



Caroline Belhumeur, creative director of Vince, and Alison Edmond, executive creative and fashion director for C Magazine, invited a close circle of friends at Belhumeur’s Hollywood Hills residence on Thursday, Dec. 12, to toast the upcoming holidays.

Vince CEO Brendan Hoffman; designer Kendall Conrad and her husband, director David Cameron; art curators Travis Hansson and Sophia Penske; and filmmaker Clara Cullen (who appeared in the label’s Southern California-inspired fall global ad campaign) were among those who mixed and mingled around the pool, pausing now and again to try the passed hors d’oeuvres, raw bar and charcuterie board by Lucques. Adding to the cozy winter mood, there were Hollywood classics projected onto an exterior wall, and Vince sweaters and blankets set out for guests seeking extra warmth while taking in the incredible views of the city.

While artists Alexandra Grant and Tasya van Ree; actor and producer Shannen Doherty and her husband, photographer Kurt Iswarienko; and stylist Sissy Sainte-Marie Chacon all caught up with C Magazine’s founder Jennifer Smith and president Jenny Murray, others played with the provided Polaroid cameras, contributing to a trove of memories to last long after the evening was through.
