Clippers in ties. Gilbert Arenas in motorcycle leather. Waitresses styled-out like girls in the Robert Palmer Simply Irresistible music video. Welcome to Hollywood.
GQ Magazine and Hennessy linked up for a classy cocktail reception on Monday evening for Clippers point guard Chris Paul, who graces the cover of GQ’s October style playbook issue, dapper in rolled up jeans and wing tips.
Spectacled and laced in a double-breasted grey suit, CP3 along with teammates Caron Butler, DeAndre Jordan, Willie Green, Matt Barnes and Blake Griffin enjoyed a live performance from Miguel in an intimate setting at The Sayer’s Club. Other guests included Tristan Wilds of The Wire fame, screenwriter Etan Cohen, New Girl’s LaMorne Morris and Terrell Owens.
It was a cool laid back affair with many of the Clippers causally mingling with the guests and celebrities in attendance. Paul attended the event with his wife Jada and his parents—Robin and Chris Paul Sr—were also on hand.
