ASICS & NIVEA Sponsor Grammy Soiree


After-party style! As the Grammy Awards came to an end, celebrities wasted no time in heading over to the House of Hype Grammy party hosted by ASICS and NIVEA. Celebrity arrivals entailed: Benji and Joel Madden, Grammy-winning Artist Duffy, Ryan Phillippe, Abbie Cornish, and the list goes on… According to BizBash.com as well, “Asics [also] debuts [at the House of Hype] what it bills as the world’s-largest Lite Brite, standing more than 11 feet tall and 15 feet wide with more than 300,000 original-sized pegs.” Before heading out, celebs did not forget to grab some freebies, like Nivea’s extra-special moisturizing hand lotion. Got to remember to keep those hands smooth, people!

Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid & Kanye West


JUST ABOUT EVERYONE OBVIOUSLY! CEO of Island Def Jam, Antonio L.A. Reid hosts his Grammy Awards Dinner & After-party at the House of Hype, located at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. Those that came to support were Lionel Richie, Estelle, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Keyshia Cole, Colby O’Donis, Christina Milian, Ryan Phillippe, Jesse McCartney, Benki Madden, Ryan Eggold, and Ashanti. Shockingly, the menu was even better than the guest list (if you can believe that), which entailed jumbo shrimp cocktail, lobster cocktail, filet mignon, and grilled wild salmon. [The grilled wild salmon was my favorite.]
