Relaxation Romp

| August 25, 2011 | Parties

The opening weekend celebration for the new ELLE Spa at the Eden Roc Renaissance in Miami Beach certainly lived up to its $200 million price tag and all-caps moniker. Familiar faces were plentiful—of both local and Tinseltown provenance—at the party, which was hosted by E.R. GM Greg Cook and Sales Director David Siguaw alongside Elle magazine’s Robbie Myers (editor-in-chief) and Emily Dougherty (beauty andfitness director). Among the boldest of the boldface guests were Jaime King and Joy Bryant (representing the model-slash-actress contingent) as well as Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights, Gillian Jacobs of Community, Isaiah Mustafa (better known as the Old Spice body wash guy) and interior designer/party planner Colin Cowie, who had nothing but kind remarks about the 22,000-square-foot spa’s all-white d├ęcor. After touring the sanctum and partaking in some mini treatments, guests moved on to the pool lawn for bubbly, lamb kebabs and chocolate lollipops, and a performance by Rye Rye. The overall consensus: "This place wins the prize for the best facial I’ve ever had," said Bryant. "It’s too bad I live 3,000 miles away." Photography by John Parra/WireImage
