Au Revoir, Pardner!

| August 25, 2011 | Parties

THE SHINDIG When Moët Hennessy SW Senior Vice President Christophe Charrier decided to return to his native France, it was only appropriate to bid him farewell in true Texas style. In that spirit, a western-inspired invitation beckoned guests to an exclusive party hosted in Charrier’s honor at The Rachofsky House, where the Wild West was definitely alive and well— at least for one night. DRESS CODE Suggested attire was cowboy chic and the crowd willingly complied, kicking up their heels in embellished boots and 10-gallon hats mixed with sizable belt buckles, a touch of fringe and plenty of turquoise moments. SAY HOWDY Guests the likes of Barbara Buzzell, Matthew Giese, Niven Morgan and Shelby Wagner, among other friends, flocked to the party. ALL THE FIXINS Culinary ranger Kent Rathbun skipped the pearl snap button-down for a chef coat instead, helming his outdoor kitchen and turning out savory plates. Meanwhile DJs Jennifer Miller and Paul Paredes spun tunes and guests clinked to Charrier (with Moët & Chandon minis, natch) long into the night. Cheers. Photography by Daniel Driensky
