If it’s true that a hostess sets the tone for the evening, this party was chic from the start. Carla McDonald opened her Westlake abode for an evening all about the man of the evening, Cameron Silver.
The impeccably decorated home was the perfect setting for the soiree. Carla lined the main gallery with vintage gowns worn to galas and holiday parties through the years, each with a history as beautiful as the dress itself.
Cameron, owner of the Los Angeles luxury vintage boutique Decades and star of the Bravo series Dukes of Melrose, mixed and mingled with the fashionable crowd. His store and new book Decades: A Century of Fashion focus on the iconic looks of a decade and span from the 1920s to current day.
The visually stunning oversized book is less a coffee table adornment and more a piece of art covering the history of fashion. Guests gathered with Cameron on a beautiful settee, book in hand, to chat – making it seem less like a book signing and more like a catch up between old friends.
