They pulled out all the stops when the new Asphalt Yacht Club clothing line took over the legendary Malibu Inn for a starry launch party. The line was founded by pro skater Stevie Williams. 

The hotspot was packed wall-to-wall with guests, athletes and celebrities. Everyone from entertainer Stacy Keibler to reality star Scott Disick and celebutant Paris Hilton, along with famous faces like “The Hills” star Audrina Patridge, yogurt heartthrob John Stamos and “Lincoln Lawyer” star Ryan Phillippe. 

The entire Asphalt Yacht Club Skate team was there as well. Stevie Williams, Stefan Janoski, Nyjah Huston, Riley Hawk, Justin “Figgy” Figueroa, Derrick Wilson, Ben Nordberg and Blake Carpenter kept the club well represented. 

The beloved Malibu Inn venue was transformed with Yacht Club towels draped over tabletops and colorful banners floating from the ceiling. A frosty and impressive ice sculpture provided a focal piece to complete the décor. 

Guests grooved to the sounds of DJ Jesse Marco while sipping Voli Light Vodkas specialty cocktails. The event was capped off with a special performance by French Montana who “wasn’t worried about nothing” and brought out Too Short for a guest performance to “Blow The Whistle.” 

Everything old is new again

Speaking of merry-making and entertainment, a historic old venue may soon be back with unforgettable musical performances that made it famous. 

Years ago, when Malibu Seen was just a teen queen, there was only one place to be on Friday and Saturday nights. That place was known as the fabulous Inglewood Forum. 

Yes, I was there every week in my six-inch platforms, powder blue ostrich boa and dark blue nail polish (Was I on to something?). With my dad reluctantly turning over the keys to his mega yacht-sized Lincoln Continental Mark IV, I piled in with my pals, hit the 405 and took in every major act of the day. Everyone who was anyone played the fab forum. Among my fave memories are Led Zeppelin (three times), The Rolling Stones (twice), The Who (Quadrophenia), Jethro Tull, Boston, Doobie Brothers, Bad Company—you name it, we were there. 

Well, it now seems that the neglected old arena, also once home to Los Angeles’ biggest sports teams, is getting a new lease on life. Execs at Madison Square Garden Company have plans for a multimillion dollar face-lift and a January opening with top acts. 

It will vie off against the Anschutz Group and its Staples Center. 

So listen to the music and rock on!
