Gen Art Presents Jovovich-Hawk 2007 Summer Collection @ Stoli Hotel ~ Hollywood

4:00 PM PDT on May 22, 2007


You know how it goes sometimes, mates...some days you're scraping the bottom of the peanut butter jar just to keep standing, other days the phone rings and next thing you know you're cramming as many caviar-topped blinis and purple cocktails into your gullet as is humanly possible before trodding home. So was the scene for me last week at the recent Jovovich-Hawk fashion show at Stoli Hotel, sponsored by Gen Art as part of their Fresh Faces in Fashion program.


Gen Art is the nation's leading arts and entertainment organization dedicated to showcasing the best emerging talent in film, fashion, art, and music. I recommend joining on some level for access to their hottie-stuffed parties, entry to film screenings, fashion shows, and first-hand looks at big exhibits through the city. Gen Art has brought TACO to private viewings of the Skin + Bones exhibit at Museum of Contemporary Art and an early look at the film Marie Antoinette, among many other cool and different art events that I am having trouble remembering right now.


But back to the hot stuff! Gen Art parties are always covered in good-looking folks. And never was this more true at last week's bash at Stoli Hotel, a temporary club on Ivar sponsored by Stoli Vodka that will, like the circus, uproot and relocate after 40 days. The Stoli Hotel reminds me of the ice-hotel, without freezing the ole buttski off, with clean white walls, a clear bar lined with chilled bottles of the namesake vodka, light projections as curtains, nice nooks and crannies for canoodling, and a breezy outdoor space for smoking and the like. Plus, an army of Slavic studs and chicas serving the aforementioned cocktails and crudites.


The fashion show itself was filled with hot female models showing off those blossomy dresses that trendy girls are into nowadays with a 1960's twist, designed by actress/singer/model Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk with attention to comfort, elegance, and subtlety. I took much delight in watching some of the more fresh-off-the-boat Slavic beauties awkwardly twisting in the spotlight, while the more experienced ones, like this gorgeous Jessica-Alba-esque one above made my heart flutter. I met Milla Jovovich and she was really nice. Go Gen Art! You make my half-Slavic heart swell with pride and Pani Jessica Alba-nski, thanks for your own efforts towards making things swell.
