Palm Springs simply bubbled over with good spirits over the weekend at Moët & Chandon’s bash at the BNP Paribas Open, where the haute champagne brand truly presented the perfect pairing with a happy mixture of champagne and tennis.  
Just before the final match As Novak Djokovic and Milos Raonic prepared to square off for the tournament championship on Sunday morning (which world number one Djokovic won with a one-sided 6-2, 6-0 victory), an illustrious mix of stars and VIPs came together for the inaugural Moet & Chandon “Holding Court” dinner on center court of the Indian Wells Tennis Stadium. Each delectable course, designed by the world famous Nobu, was accompanied by a vintage Moët champagne.
Notables at the event including Hilary Swank, Scott Eastwood, Whitney Port, Kate Walsh, Natasha Bedingfield, Camilla Belle, Jesse Metcalfe, Cara Santana, Carly Steel, Jon Tenney, Holland Roden, Kyle Richards, Caggie Dunlop, the HFPA’s Lorenzo Soria and Terry Crews celebrated the day of tennis in a haute way, taking in the matches from the Moët & Chandon Suite while sipping Moët from goblets all day long. 
Hilary Swank began dinner with a show, jumping into the umpire seat for all to see. Heartthrob Scott Eastwood made his rounds all night, while Holland Roden showed up with brand new beau Josh Roden. Cara Santana dished on not returning for a third season of Salem, crediting her desire to stay close to Jesse Metcalfe and of course, their puppy. Whitney Port returned to Palm Springs with her new hubby after their nuptials there this fall. Over cocktails she reunited with The Hills’ theme song recording artist, Natasha Bedingfield, who had spent the previous evening performing at Cirque du Soleil’s illustrious One Night for One Drop event in Las Vegas. Avid tennis fan Kate Walsh arrived with a posse to the Moët suite, clad in Missoni.
