Uptown Magazine honored award-winning writer, producer and director, Malcolm D. Lee at the 2014 Annual Uptown Pre-Oscar Gala, presented by Lexus. Events By Fabulous produced a red carpet soiree inspired by vintage Hollywood and rustic chic elements. The dinning patio, furnished with rustic wood tables and eclectic seating, featured rows of illuminated antique glass and a luscious spread of purple and copper flowers arranged in assorted mercury glass vases. Fabulous designed and installed a beautiful light-scape that made the room sparkle, with a radiant soft amber stage and floral-patterned break up lighting that accented the glow of the art deco pendants that hung from above.
After walking the boxwood adorned press area, guests entered into the Lexus lounge for old-fashioned cocktails provided by Tanqueray Ten Gin. The sponsor tent featured a 2014 CT F Sport, a Lexus Instagram Wall, and an interactive touch screen display where party-goers could learn more about the vehicle. The featured car was set against a beautiful backdrop of crushed chocolate velvet and gold satin. Design highlights included oversized antique frames with larger-than-life magazine covers and a dramatic mobile of chandeliers suspended at different heights. Fabulous completed this glamorous yet rustic atmosphere using rich purple accent hues, pops of greenery, vintage trunks and burlap lamp shades.
