Party Report in Pictures: Inside Fergie, Nicki Minaj, Ashton Kutcher’s Fashion Huddle (Photos)

The front row always matters, even if it’s not a fashion show. Influential fashion trade the Daily Front Row lived up to its name with a knockout lineup at it’s 4th annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards at the Sunset Tower on April 2.

Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, and Fergie made a close-knit troika. Minaj took selfies during the presentation of awards to stylists and trendsetters. Before the event, the Sunset Terrace was empty as the 200 VIPs in attendance gathered around the carpet in a new position at the Sunset Tower – over the pool.Fergie, and arguably one of the top 10 most famous women in the world, met up on the pool deck during the cocktail hour. The crowd was an ego-destroyer: a genetic seas of bones and height that makes the Oscar crowd look like Comic-Con.

The Fashion L.A. Awards huddled a group including stylists Karla Welch (presented by Busy Phillips), Samantha McMillen (presented by client Ashton Kutcher), Stephen Gan (honored eloquently by Lee Daniels, who was wearing red flip flops) and Minaj, who was honored as “Fashion Rebel”.

“When the person I know myself to be meets the person I want you to think I am, it’s called ‘vulberability’,” Kutcher said of his relationship and collaboration on his look with stylist McMillen.

Paris Jackson’s deb-ball year continues. After an apperance at the GLAAD Media Awards the night before, Paris was turning heads even in this room, posing here with Daily Front Row Editor-In-Chief Brandusa Niro.

Stella Maxwell (with host Nick Jonas and Lily Aldridge at the Mr. Chow after party) is first biological example of someone who disappears when they turn to the side.

I know nothing about high fashion except that her dress size has to be “one sheet of paper.”

The sellout crowd at Dodger stadium for an opening day demolition of the San Diego Padres (14-3) included Emily Ratajkowski perched up in the new “Bud & Burgers” suite.

A select group of L.A. foodie influencers (think: Vice, Thrillist etc.) got the first bites of the Dodger Dog’s new cousin…

The Official Burger of the L.A. Dodgers (it has a Dodger Dog inside, which solves the dilemna for those who can’t decide whether they want to throw a dog or a burger in their mouth while watching Clayton Kershaw throw heat.)

It’s $13.50 in the stadium. Also new, team specific Budweiser cans designed by local artists.

Over 300 leaders in Gen-Z female video gathered at Tubefilter’s meetup panel and townhall on “How Niche Female Programming is Capturing Big Audiences”.

From left, the panel included: Elyssa Starkman (Beautycon’s new Head of Content), Rachel Evans (of co-host Snarled and “The Dark Five”), Jason Ziemianski (Co-Founder/Chief Strategy Officer of Snarled), host/Tubefilter founder Drew Baldwin, Sarah Early (UTA), Gayle Gilman (Co-Founder/CEO Ripple Entertainment and Snarled), and Laci Green (leading YouTuber on Sex Education),

The conversation centered on Gen-Z video created by and for Gen-Z personalities and a sometimes awkward courtship with brands that seek access to that audience via outdated demographic data.

“Look at the census,” Beautycon’s Starkman said.  “(Brands) should not be programming to the part of America that is going to be the minority in America next year.”

The crowd at Tubefilter’s quarterly meetup series at Busby’s included execs from CBS Interactive, the MCN’s, PR firms, and independent creators.

“You have to thread that needle of being both ‘the influencer’ and a publisher,” Snarled’s Jason Ziemianski said.  “Otherwise, you’re just a content farm and you’re not going to develop the loyalty that we see in Laci (Green). .

Meanwhile in Vegas, Aluna George was one of the featured performers at the opening of the new W Las Vegas Hotel. It occupies one tower of the SLS on the north end of the strip.

Players rush in to a new casino on opening night hoping for good luck.  This crowd on Friday night (March 31) included Jesse Metcalfe, Cara Santana, NFL star Danny Amendola, and Olivia Culpo.
