On Thursday, September 5, the stars–Freda Payne and Mary Wilson came out to celebrate the publication of the new book: “Living The Luxe Life,” by hotel owner Efrem Harkham and celebrity author Mark Bego.
The gala book launch took place at Harkham’s stunning Luxe Hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The cocktail party section of the evening was set in the open air patio, where guests dined on a full sushi bar, hors d’oeuvres, and toasted the publication of the new book.
“Band of Gold” singing star Freda Payne is currently working on a new jazz album of duets. And, the Supremely glamorous Mary Wilson came to the party straight from all-day rehearsals at “Dancing With The Stars,” which debuts with her as part of the cast on September 16. Also at the outdoor party were Rebecca Holden of TV’s “Knight Rider” fame, star record producer Joel Diamond, movie producer Todd Black, filmmaker Michael Vaccaro, celebrity portrait photographer Bart Mastronardi, Paul Antonelli of the rock group Animotion, vocal and acting coach Faith Rumer, music industry’s Beth Wernick, PR-pasha David Salidor, actor Felipe Echerri, and singer / songwriters Stacy Robin and Ed Gould.
To top off the festivities, that very day “Living The Luxe Life” hit Number One on one of Amazon.com’s Best-Seller lists!
