On the Riviera

| August 28, 2012 | Parties

Style, elegance and the toniest toasts in town: It’s what Orange County’s finest desire, and the 300-plus VIPs who filled The Strand’s stunning shorefront clubhouse for Riviera on the Riviera certainly got it—after all, the soirĂ©e celebrated 10 Years of Luxury. There was fashion, of course, and that came courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue. Models sported summertime looks against a glittering stretch of the sky and sea, while guests—among them Debbie Pontillo, Rick Campos, Wylie and Bette Aitken, and Carolyn Mullany and Craig Jackson—lounged on the alfresco patio and mingled around the pool. That sophisticated scene carried on both upstairs and down with a sampling of sweets and bites (we loved the ceviche), bars stocked with sexy sips and tunes that pumped up the crowd until the party closed—need we say more?
