Celebrity stylist Anya Sarre recently celebrated the upcoming birth of her first baby with a flirty, over-the-top baby shower on the rooftop of West Hollywood’s Andaz Hotel. The fashion expert is known to have a soft spot for all things fabulous, and this event was no exception. Anya tells Hollywood Hot Moms that “I am the luckiest girl in the world that I got to have my shower rooftop at the Andaz hotel!”
We asked Anya how hard is it to not know if the baby is a boy or a girl? “I think everyone thought I was going to announce at the shower whether I was having a boy or a girl, but I really don’t know! It is as big of a secret to me as it is to everyone else.”
Guests enjoyed small bites, Voli Vodka cocktails, a custom candy bar and enjoyed a perfect Los Angeles sunset overlooking the famed Sunset Strip. Anya’s strollers of choice, Quinny, were showcased along the pool and Drunken Udder’s ice cream bar served up scoops of their delicious liquor-infused ice cream (and yes, it was more delicious than you could ever imagine, if I may say so).
Even at eight months pregnant, the mom-to-be did not disappoint her fashionista fans: Anya matched the party’s ‘nautical chic’ theme and wore a bright yellow, custom-made dress by Chagoury Couture in Beverly Hills and rocked sky-high, sparkly YSL heels. Even the decor was fashion-forward…
Clotheslines of baby wear hung between each cabana, and included mini-designer baby boy and girl clothes – as she’s not finding out the baby’s gender beforehand – that only a Hollywood stylist could find (one of the faves is a onesie that reads ‘I left my Louis in the jet’). “Twelve friends of mine planned this shower… and they blew me away,” gushed the mom-to-be, who also plans events when she’s not styling clients. “Although I was allowed to do the cake and gift bags… so that made me happy.”
Bakery to the stars Hansens Cakes in Beverly Hills made a custom cake in the shape of a huge Chanel diaper bag (which also happens to be Anya’s real diaper bag (sans the frosting).
And the gift bags (oh, the gift bags!) included all of Anya’s favorite things. Guests were each given a nautical chic tote by BELLA bags, complete with a custom tag that read “Thanks for sailing with Baby Sarre,” which included: hair product from ANDRE WALKER, workout wear from AZIAM, undergarments from TC SHAPEWEAR, custom sprays from EVOLUE beauty, the book “No More Dirty Looks”, a MIKE AND MARLEY beach tote, a gift card for an organic spray tan from CHOCOLATE SUN, a gift card for a blow dry at SECHOIR salon, a cosmetic bag from MUDPIE, lip gloss from LADYBUG JANE, nautical necklace from SHOEDAZZLE, bracelet and earrings from DABBY REID, gift set from DADDY SCRUBS, veggie CRUNCHES, ITZY RITZY whale snack bags, pedicure from HANDS ON SPA and lip gloss from GLEAM. (Wow.)
But the most fabulous part? She did not stop smiling the whole time. Congratulations Anya!
