Modern Luxury Orange County’s Men of the Moment soiree was an instant success.
THE PARTY It was time to toast the five gents who are making an impact here right now when Modern Luxury Orange County held its Men of the Moment party at the iconic Five Crowns in Corona del Mar. THE GUESTS Honorees Keith Hancock and Michael Kent were joined by a debonair crowd of dynamos—think David August’s Lucas Lujano and former Man of Style Gabriel Serrato-Buelna. They sipped cocktails by House of Carbonadi (a diamond of a drink) in the Greenhouse and strolled into the garden to feast on lamb chops and crispy artichoke hearts. Then they raised their glasses to the guys. THE HIGHLIGHTS Editor-in-Chief Tina Borgatta knighted the Grammy Award-winning music educator (Hancock) and the lieutenant leading Irvine’s CSI and SWAT teams (Kent), respectively, along with their fellow power players—a James Beard-nominated chef, a former MLB center fielder-turned-real estate investor and an IT solutions pro. Of the moment, and setting the pace for the future. -Kristen Schott
