All That Glitters

| February 27, 2015 | Parties National

The W Scottsdale’s Chateau de Versailles New Year’s Eve party wowed guests with regal touches like golden entrance gates in the porte-cochere, over-the-top lighting, string musicians and a cascade of colorful feathers. Partygoers were treated like royalty and served drinks by cocktail waitresses clad in ensembles inspired by the Marie Antoinette era. At the top of the W’s grand staircase decked with Venetian portraits for the evening, guests were greeted on the WET deck by human topiaries, floating chandeliers, extravagant floral arrangements, faux shrubbery, birdcages and aerialists. We think even Marie herself would have approved. –Photos by Haute Photography
