L.A. Report: Esquire Party at the Shangri-LA

J. Everette Perry

Esquire Magazine threw a party at one of my favorite Santa Monica spots, Hotel Shangri-La. The art-deco hotspot was the perfect setting for an evening of complimentary cocktails, luscious hors d'oeuvres, and LA Style. I ran into stylist Brent Shepherd and 7th House PR girl Jane Lee, who were both rocking healthy glossy black hair and beige geometric inspired tops. Director Hannah Cowley showed up in a low-cut emerald Carmelita Couture cocktail dress and VH1's For the Love of Ray J star Joanna Hernandez looked great in a faux leather jacket layered over a short blue silk dress. L.A. boys style themselves in everything from bow ties and jackets to Gucci sneakers and baseball cap. But it seems like dress codes here on the West Side are always trumped by a nice smile (my favorite accessory).
