A Look Inside The "Opulence" Halloween Party—Plus All The Winning Costumes!
Here's a look at what went on inside the Tent at Solaire during the most opulent Halloween party of the year, Mond Gutierrez's "Opulence: Let Them Eat Cake"
The "Opulence: Let Them Eat Cake" Halloween party organized by Mond Gutierrez, event specialist Ash Rye, and event organizer La Belle Fête may now be over, but people still can't stop talking about it. A quick scroll on Instagram and a click on its hashtag (#Opulence19) will reveal how epic the night was. Mond perfectly summed up how the party's guests and those who stayed up all night stalking them on social media are all probably feeling right now: "Guys I’m having content anxiety. So many photos. So much fun. So many people to thank. Such a magical night."
Indeed, there's so much content created from one evening, and Metro and Metro.Style documented it from the beginning till the end: from the arrival of the guests, the best-dressed women and the best-dressed men, the couples who attended, the sexiest and showstopping looks of the evening, to the cage skirt trend that night.
If you thought the event was impressive based on the photos from when the guests were making their way into the actual venue, then prepare to be in awe, because what was prepared inside was nothing short of spectacular—it absolutely lived up to its name, as it was opulent in all angles.
Ten event stylists (Amante Fleurs, Badang Rueda, Blooms 2710, Dave Sandoval, Gary Dacanay, Gideon Hermosa, Michael Ruiz, Teddy Manuel, Moss Manila Design House, and Randy Lazaro) joined forces to transform The Tent at Solaire and transport the guests into a magical place they will remember forever.
