To say that last night in Hollywood at the W Hotel was fierce would be an understatement.
HIH and Bello Mag were proud to be part of the TURN IT UP FOR CHANGE Ball, benefiting the Human Rights Campaign and its efforts to spread marriage equality across the country. Kelly Osbourne, Dita Von Teese, Meghan McCain, and Ciara joined Jennifer Hudson at the luxury hotel on Hollywood Boulevard for a fabulous night of vogueing and vamping on the catwalk.
Hudson kicked off the festivities with a remix of her smash hit, "Spotlight," and then went into her current Gorgon City-produced, 90s-house-influenced single "Go All Night," which got the audience up on its feet. (Seriously, if you haven't heard it, YouTube the video now.) But it was her closing, Instagram-worthy performance of "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" that blew up the entire ballroom and had everyone scrambling to get out their smartphones.
The vogueing ball featured glammed-up transgender models, drag queens and more, and was the third marquee event for TURN IT UP FOR CHANGE, the fundraising and awareness initiative founded by W Hotels Worldwide, HRC, and Hudson herself for the fight for nationwide LGBT and marriage equality.
Ciara, Kelly Osbourne and TV personality B. Scott were also seen laughing and taking selfies in the front row during Jennifer’s performance. And the fun didn’t end there – Ciara even strutted her stuff on the runway before joining Dita and Kelly at the judge’s table.
And naturally, there was an afterparty - located on the rooftop of the hotel where the cocktails and music flowed well after midnight.
Needless to say, we were a little tired this morning.
