HOLLYWOOD—Somehow summer just flew by didn’t it? Somehow, you meant to take that European vacation, however, it just didn’t happen. Now Labor Day is upon us. Labor Day is for picnics and backyard barbeques, and a time to celebrate America’s everyday heroes-the working people.
Hollywood’s elite crowds usually travel to either London, France or Italy, while others decide to cruise the Mediterranean in their private yacht. Celebrities tend to just pick up and go on a whim. They jet off to Las Vegas, South Beach or usually the Hamptons. If you want to swim with the dolphins, then fly off to Atlantis on Paradise Island.
Fashionistas dictate strictly that Labor Day weekend traditionally marks the end of wearing white. That’s right dolls, no more white pants, shoes, dresses and bikinis. That’s why on Labor Day weekend so many people throw the white party which has been a trend for years and years, especially in the summertime. The only requirement is to wear white; sometimes these parties are taken to the next level, including drinks, desserts and decor.
This type of theme is just perfect for the holiday. You may recall a few years ago, when A-listers flew from all over the globe on their private jets to attend the biggest, grandest most exclusive event in the Hamptons. P. Diddy’s annual famous White Party which was held at Diddy’s East Hampton waterfront mansion, where Billy Joel’s wife was asked to change after arriving in a cream color dress. The year was 2007 and the event featured Polynesian dancers, painted geishas walking the grounds, a jazz band and a circus performer twirling six spinning rings. This year the place to be is the Miami Nice 2014 Annual Labor Day Weekend All White Attire Yacht Party. The event will be hosted by “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Karlie Redd on August 30 in Miami,Florida.
