It was beauties abound on Wednesday night at the spectacular grand opening of Andrea’s, the new Asian restaurant in Encore Las Vegas. Hosts Steve and Andrea Wynn welcomed supermodel Kate Upton, actresses Krysten Ritter (“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23”), Ashley Greene (“Twilight,” “CBGB”), Stacy Keibler (sans beau George Clooney who launched his Casamigos Tequila at Andrea’s last week), “Extra” host Maria Menounos, a radiant expecting mother Holly Madison, 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair and model/UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste among many other head-turners that blended in beautifully with Andrea’s sexy modern and feminine design.
Actor Elijah Wood (“Lord of the Rings,” “Wilfred”) entertained the lively crowd spinning 45’s in the DJ booth. Rick Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell of “Pawn Stars,” and Grammy-winning DJ Afrojack, with date Aussie DJ Havana Brown, were among the other VIP guests to enjoy the hip vibe dining concept that combines the signature cuisine of executive chef Joseph Elevado and the sounds of musical chef Steve Angello to create a unique and unforgettable dining and nightlife experience in one environment.
After the celebrity guests walked the red carpet and entered the restaurant, named for Steve Wynn’s lovely new wife, Andrea, welcomed the crowd and thanked operating partner Sean Christie, designer Todd Avery-Lenahan and Elevado for helping to create such an exciting new Wynn Las Vegas restaurant. Then, with great fanfare, her hotel mogul husband likened the opening of a restaurant to a Broadway show and, on cue, a curtain of 10,000 roses behind the bar was raised to unveil a giant photo of Andrea’s eyes that looked out onto the applauding crowd.
A statuesque Upton, 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, had some fun and went into the kitchen to help Chef Elevado prepare dim sum for guests.
Krysten Ritter and Ashley Greene attended the after-party at Surrender Nightclub to catch a DJ set by Afrojack.
