Since 2009, Moët & Chandon has been the exclusive champagne of the Academy Awards/Oscars. Bringing this larger than life association with the allure of the silver screen to Kuala Lumpur, the world’s most loved champagne threw a glamorous soiree, the Moët & Chandon Movie Classics event, themed around the iconic 1961 movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
The guests, a sophisticated mix of well known personalities and socialites such as the “Golden Awards 2010 Most Popular Actress Award” winner Debbie Goh, Ung Yiu Lin of “Shoes Shoes Shoes” and “KLutched”, socialites Sherin Wong and Datin Dian Lee and Miss Universe Malaysia finalists Lu Xanne Boon and Jennifer Goh, personalities Nadia Heng, Aliza Kim, Hannah Lo and Peter Davis were dressed in their interpretation of “Sixties Red-Carpet Glamour”, according to the night’s dresscode.
Little black dresses, pearls and of course Moët & Chandon champagne provided the perfect backdrop for the glamorous guests before they were ushered to their seats in GSC’s Gold Class Hall for the private screening by male butlers.
At the Gold Class Lounge, guests were also given the opportunity to have their Red-Carpet moment – their signature on a bottle of Moët & Chandon Balthazar, a tradition carried out at the Oscars, the Golden Globe Awards, major film premieres and numerous international film festivals. A Moët & Chandon display, similar to the window display found in the opening credits of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, generated much excitement from guests as they were given a photo each as a keepsake as host of the night.
In the cinema hall, guests were treated to a “Service Ritual” performed by butlers, which led to an elegant serving of Moët & Chandon champagne, to the delight of the audience before the film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s began.
Once the lights went up, Will Quah led the chic and merry guests to Bianco at Vertigo for an after-party, which was transformed into a glittering gold and white space, setting the stage for a rousing rendition of “Hey Big Spender”.
As the music to the finale number started, Mathieu Duchemin, Managing Director of Moët Hennessy Malaysia ended the evening with a Celebratory Ritual – popping the cork from a magnum of Moët & Chandon.
As a champagne shower of confetti gently made its way down to the dancefloor, guests knew that they had experienced something truly extraordinary – the Moët & Chandon Cinema Classics 2012 Event.
