STK, the sultry steakhouse inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, transformed into a Hamptons-style beach villa for the third year in a row for an all-white attire end-of-summer soiree hosted by former Bravo TV reality star and fashion mogul Gretchen Christine Rossi.


The invitation-only all white event kicked off at 9:30 p.m. with a celeb-filled white carpet. Dressed to impress in summer whites, party revelers were transported into the STK-turned-Hamptons beach estate complete with cabana-style seating and chic white décor. Mysterious white-themed surprises around every corner added to the evening’s pizzazz as STK brought summer to an end.

Rossi, Bravo TV’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” reality TV star, fashion icon and designer, upped the trend-worthy ante as she walked the white carpet wearing a custom Stello by Stephanie Costello gown. Her handbag collection, Gretchen Christine, is set to debut at New York Fashion Week this week. Rossi’s fiance Slade Smiley, was wearing the XXXX Collection from Stitched, the men’s haberdashery inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

VIP guests enjoyed Pernod Ricard sponsored open bar and light passed appetizers from Executive Chef Stephen Hopcraft’s white theme-inspired menu including Baked Clams, Fennel Brendade on Crostini, Lobster Dumplings and Truffled Popcorn. STK Pastry Chef Brigette Contreras sweetened the menu with all-white desserts including Coconut Macaroons and Mini Banana Cream Pie Trifles.
