The scene was classic Hollywood when Kimera Restaurant and Lounge hosted a Red Carpet Party in honor of the Oscars. It was a stylish soirĂ©e attended by Orange County’s elite and fit for even the greatest of A-listers. Guests, like Peggy Tanous (formerly of The Real Housewives of Orange County), and Craig and Traci Medici, were ensured a star-worthy entrance, with faux paparazzi snapping shots and red carpet interviews. Partygoers enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and dinner, all while viewing the 84th Academy Awards ceremony on the many screens dotting the luxe, exotic venue. Best of all, the evening benefited the Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County. And no Oscar night would be complete without some talk of fashion, so this event was topped off with a ceremony of its own, including a nod for Best Dressed. But the award for Best Party was no doubt snagged by Kimera. Photos by Ann Chatillon
