Diddy, Doja Cat, and Richie Akiva co-hosted their Met Gala “The After” party sponsored by D’usse Cognac, Champagne Armand De Brignac, Deleon, and Ciroc Vodka… The epic bash held at the iconic The Box kicked off at Midnight and went all night long until 6 am with a parade of Met Gala attendees arriving until the wee hours and back-to-back DJ performances.
DJ sets were performed by D Nice, Tunez, and Hank K with a surprise performance by Teyana Taylor, as Diddy and son Christian Combs rotated on the mic throughout the night, while guests danced and mingled all night on the dance floor as part of “Club Love.”
The annual late-night after-party was an ode to the great Karl Lagerfeld. The Box was completely transformed featuring black and white furniture, oversized white Chanel-inspired flowers, chandeliers and table sconces draped with pearls, white floral decor, candles, oversized sleek black gloss candelabras, and full of Karl Lagerfeld inspiration to honor the great Chanel designer, inclusive of waiters donning white wigs in tribute.
Guests at the celebratory bash sipped on CIROC Vodka and Deleon Tequila cocktails, as bottles flowed of Champagne Armand de Brignac and D’USSE cognac.
Notable guests at the exclusive afterparty bash in addition to hosts Diddy and Doja Cat and Richie Akiva, included Jared Leto, Naomi Cambell, Marc Jacobs, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Vogue UK’s Edward Enninful, Bee Carrozzini (Daughter to Anna Wintour), Mary J. Blige, Chris Rock, Kendall Jenner, Bad Bunny, Lil Nas X, Usher, French Montana, Offset, Cardi B, Ice Spice, Teyana Taylor, Yung Miami, Gisele Bundchen, Emily Ratajkowski, Lily James, Odell Beckham Jr. Caro Daur, Georgia Fowler, Christian Combs, Ivy Getty, Kailand Morris, A$AP Ferg, Char Defrancisco, Busta Rhymes, Badius, with additional models and influencers such as Adelina Novak, Elena, Militsa Borisova, Rachel Winters, Vittoria Ceretti, Emilia Silberg, Fatima Cuellar and more.
