Houston’s summer may be steamy thus far, but CityBook and Clé embraced the heat at the magazine’s second annual Sexy Party, which celebrated the release of the summer Sexy Issue. More than 300 guests gathered poolside at the venerable hotspot, where palm trees strung with festive lights framed a sultry fashion presentation, produced by Todd Ramos, with lighting and dazzle by LG Entertainment.
Page Parkes models strutted their stuff in fabulous and beach-ready looks by Sexy Party sponsor 29 North, as well as designers including Chloe Dao, Privilege and Kimora Lee Simmons, and boutiques like M Penner and Guyz N Style. Guests soaked up the show from perches on oversize lounge chairs near the water and from a second-floor balcony, all while enjoying prosecco and Moscow mules as Clé’s sister concept Bisou served mini beef tartar crostinis and sea bass crab cakes. And Shake Shack served frozen custards.
Beautiful baubles by Jianna, featured prominently in the Sexy Issue’s “Worlds Beyond” fashion story, were on display; the jeweler also popped up a poolside photo booth, complete with models ready to strike a pose alongside party guests.
