High Notes

| September 4, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY Celebrities of every stripe gathered at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago for three days of parties and events celebrating the arrival of Lollapalooza. THE SCENE Music insiders and performers looking to escape the Lolla crowds mingled over wine and cocktails in the It’s So Miami Lounge, where top DJs were spinning beats and a photo booth captured all the famous faces. Beauty buffs joined Camilla Belle and AnnaSophia Robb in the CK One Music Lounge for manicures and performances by Eve, The Mowgli’s and Brick + Mortar, while the sporting types faced off for a few spirited rounds of pingpong. THE HIGHLIGHTS This year marked the debut of #ASOSRocks, a VIP-only after-party featuring a who’s who of music’s hottest up-and-comers—we counted ourselves lucky to catch Emeli Sandé’s soulful performance—and hip-hop legends Salt-N-Pepa. Two-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad encouraged the crowd to dance up a storm, and DJ sets from Mike Nouveau and Ana Calderon kept pulses racing until 2am.
