The brilliant, red glowing sunset on a balmy night should have been a clue that this evening was going to special. You could feel the vibe, even before arriving at the Sofitel Hotel, and as you walked through the doors the magic was in the air. The hallway lead you to the main room but already the party had started as you passed the dance couples moving to the sounds of hip hop, salsa and Brazilian music – and then it was on! An evening of music, delicious food from some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles like the trendy Guisados, MexiKosher, Chichen Itza, Esterel, spirits, art, beautiful people, dancing, DJs and homemade tortillas — we had arrived at the VidaLexus Sabor de Lujo signature event this past March 25th at the Sofitel Hotel.
While DJs Lezlee and Angie Vee where mixing it up and getting their groove on for all the beautiful people in the outside patio; inside the dance floor was jumping with some hot, hot dancers…and it wasn’t only the professional dancers but the guest who just couldn’t resist the beat of those bongo drums!
VidaLexus Sabor de Lujo was a celebration of the finer things in life to be enjoyed in the company of Latino movers and shakers in Hollywood, TV, music and sports with a special mix of dozens of local and national media bloggers. Among the special invited guest were actors Jacob Vargas, who was taking a bit of time off from promoting his current film Cesar Chavez that opens on March 28. Also in attendance was Jesse Garcia who had just gotten back into town from Austin, TX where he was filming Robert Rodriguez’s new TV series From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, in the role of Ranger Freddie Gonzalez. Pili Montilla from the TV show Te Para Tres looking fabulously festive in her tangerine cut out dress as she mingled with the other guests. Actress Yvette Yates, whose movie, In the Blood will be releasing on April 4th in theaters, VOD and on demand, also enjoyed the festivities. Alysha Del Valle, traffic reporter for ABC7 news. Artist Yolanda Gonzalez, whose paintings were on display, adding culture to the evening. And of course our favorite TV talk show hosts (minus one) from KCAL9/CBS2′ HOLA! LA were Naibe Reynoso, Kikey Castillo and Bel Hernandez were seen having a blast and of course taking pictures.
Lexus launched its first annual Sabor De Lujo in 2010 in Miami and in 2013 in Los Angeles and this evening continued its efforts to embrace the diversity of the current market by celebrating the richness and creative impact of Latino culture.
