SL Events and Shows Coverage – Red Carpet Gala

The Grove and OGLAM

RED CARPET GALA

at The Grove Country Club

The Grove Country Club Estates hosted a red carpet formal gala Sunday April 1st to welcome Outrageous Glamour (OGlam) to the community. The Grove and OGlam recently joined forces to provide the Second Life community the convenience of elegant, luxury living combined with a newly enhanced shopping experience and fashion expertise. OGlam has been rapidly evolving into a very successful agency with their unique innovative shows combined with a fantastic comprehensive academy and a top of the line shopping experience. The joint business venture makes the partnership certainly a force to be reckoned with.

Now on to the event…

The lovely Viola Rookswood greeted each guests as they arrived into a beautiful red carpet entry to the Grand Ballroom. One should feel like a star as Miss Rookswood makes you feel special with her warm welcome and interview. Below is a picture of OGLAM CEO Matteo Bettencourt with his partner OGLAM CMO Vixie Rayna, being greeted by Viola Rookswood as they arrived to the event.

After the long walk at the Red Carpet into the main ballroom, guests were guided to their seats where the table display is nothing short of extraordinary. The attention to detail is impeccable from the creme colored roses that adorned each table to the carefully folded napkins and table settings. We were treated to delicious tapas being served by uniformed waiters from Del Vino Tapas and Wine Bar. That is me below enjoying the dining experience. ;p

As the guests enjoyed their meal, the beautiful musical stylings of Sultry Sonata serenaded the room. Below is a picture of The Grove Owner, Umberto Giano, as he scans the room to make sure guests were enjoying themselves as the evening progresses. VIP guests include Leandra Breen, Aphrodite Briana, Editorial Clarity-Flux, Miaa Rebane, Emery Milneaux, Gozii Faith, Florentine Rau, Filipa Thespian, Lacy Muircastle,  Cindy Gedenspire, Linda RedDevil, August Lusch, and many more. Sorry if I can’t recall all the guests, had too much wine. 🙂

The evening ended with full on dancing with DJ Clark Bowenford rocking the crowd. Leandra Breen above and Gozii Faith below showing off their dance moves. It was a sensational evening filled with wonder and magic amongst friends and terrific acquaintances. Thank for the invite and BIG CHEERS to OGLAM and The Grove for a long and fruitful partnership.
