I had the distinct pleasure and honor of getting an invite to an intimate holiday Sunday brunch over the 4th of July weekend at renowned fashion designer Sue Wong’s historical estate, The Cedars. I’ve been to her sprawling estate before, but I had never been there during the day and I truly got to see every detail and the beautiful well manicured lawns. And the crowd! It was a very diverse international crowd. I felt like I was at an embassy party in DC, but with tons of talented artists there. It was like a true salon of artists and intellectuals. And don’t get me started on the food. Sue always has a huge buffet of gourmet food in her lavish dining room, but there were two tables in her salon just for cakes! And I have a wicked sweet tooth!
Guests were treated to an amazing impromptu concert by amazing talents such as Pop Opera singer Nick Palance, chanteuse Maria Elena Infantino, classical violinist Nan Ying, rocker Steve Cooke, and composer/singer Djordje Stijepovic.
I love how she made sure the Cedars was brought to her original grandeur as it is a rare piece of living Hollywood history. And I loved the dancing at the end. Sue knows how to cut up the rug!
