The Tastemakers

| June 30, 2016 | Parties

THE PARTY It was all about the unique twists, those personal touches, when Modern Luxury O.C. put on its Men of Style dinner at Waterline at Balboa Bay Resort—and from the fashions sported by the fellas to the cuisine imagined by the culinary team, the night was a trendsetter in every sense. THE GUESTS Let’s start with the guys: TyRon Jackson was oh, so cool in his linen suit (gotta love that checked bow tie!), and Louis Baker packed a punch with his signature orange hues. Their guests dressed the part too: Karan Khanna’s wife, Priyanka, was the epitome of easy glam in her jumpsuit; and Mindy Blakeslee (whose hubby, Scott, earned a spot on our list) was chic in black and white. THE HIGHLIGHTS So what about the fare, you ask? Executive Chef Rachel Haggstrom and her crew dished out a meal that mirrored the sartorial style. Each course had a spin: The kampachi sashimi was served on a record; the mint sorbet, with its lemon verbena bavarois, arrived on a block of ice; and housemade Snickers bars went home with every lady and gent. Good taste, most certainly. –Photos by Nick Shetterly of Nasfilms
