Chopard has finally made its long-awaited debut in Las Vegas.
The luxury Swiss-based jewelry, accessories and watch company celebrated the arrival of its Sin City location on Sunday afternoon with an exclusive cocktail soiree at its new home in the Wynn Las Vegas.
None other than Sir Elton John , who has a Vegas residency for his show show “The Million Dollar Piano”, was on hand to cut the chic boutique’s official blue opening ribbon.
Chopard Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele co-hosted the event. She and Sir Elton also debuted their collaboration, a new extension of the Elton John Watch Collection, at the glamorous, 800-square-foot shop. Their haute pairing benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which Scheufele has supported for nearly 15 years.
Other guests in attendance included John’s partner, David Furnish, as well as Christina Hendricks and Malin Akerman, all of whom headed over to Casear’s Palace post-party for the “Million Dollar” concert. Prior to the ribbon-cutting, the whole group celebrated Furnish’s 50th birthday at Simon Hammerstein’s new Vegas hot spot, The Act.
