On September 21, 2015, at 7:45 P.M., I stepped back in time to the world of Old Hollywood glamour. Designer, Sue Wong, hosted a star studded birthday celebration in honor of H.H. Dr. Princess Antonia Schaumburg-Lippe at her historic Hollywood landmark palazzo, The Cedars.
What makes Sue Wong’s house “The Cedars” so unique and special is its history. As I listened to Sue talk about the people who previously owned “The Cedars” such as Howard Hughes, Errol Flynn, and Johnny Depp, I could only imagine what these walls have seen. What would they say if the walls could talk? Can you imagine the parties, scandals, loves and heartbreak that went on under this roof?
When Sue bought the home, she understood and appreciated its history. Sue spent nearly three (3) years refurbishing all that was once glorious about this old Hollywood home and breathed new life into it. As you walk from room to room, you see and feel its history. You feel the house standing tall and proud.
Sue Wong spares no expense for her fabulous parties. Sue has a love for history, art, and style. She elevates old fashion etiquette to an art form. When you are her invited guests, she makes you feel like royalty. The true mark of class is a person who makes all people feel welcome. That is what Sue Wong does so effortlessly and with style!
Sue hosted dignitaries such as Los Angeles Superintendent Mike Antonovich, who presented the Princess with a special welcoming award from the County of Los Angeles. Entertainment luminaries such as actor Ronn Moss (THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL), director Rob Minkoff (THE LION KING), actor-director Tony Tarantino, actress Alice Amter (THE BIG BANG THEORY), actress Jo Hilton, actress Sofia Milos (CSI: MIAMI), Grammy winner and recording artist Omar Akram, rockers Chris Pitman (GUNS N’ ROSES) and Ralph Rieckermann (SCORPIONS); as well as Hollywood major players such as Director of BAFTA, Sandro Monetti and former BAFTA Chairman of the Board Nigel Daly, OBE were also in attendance.
With Sue Wong as the new steward of this old Hollywood home, one can only imagine the new stories these wall could tell. I for one am listening!!!!!!!
