Oakley's Intro to Summer


Where else to kick off summer than a poolside bar with a velvet rope? Oakley welcomed the season by inviting celebs and press to the exclusive Mondrian Hotel SkyBar in West Hollywood, for a look at its lifestyle eyewear collection.

Boasting sweeping views of Los Angeles, the open air, ivy-covered cabana perched above the pool was the perfect venue to show off the latest and greatest in Oakley optics. It was maximum capacity as guests mingled, tried on as many sunglasses as they could get their hands on and kicked it poolside.

“Events like these are a great way to bring in all of our celebrity relationships,” says Jeremy McCassy, Alternative Marketing Manager. “To gather media and key influencers in one room to view our new eyewear lines in invaluable.”

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens tried on the entire line of women’s eyewear before choosing her favorite pair to take away in an Oakley gift bag.

Other attending celebrities included Gilles Marini, Zachary Levi, Jack Coleman, Cory Monteith, Aimee Teegarden, Jonathan Silverman, Holly Montag, Staci Hall, Aaron Paul, Frankie Delgado, Josh Henderson, Brooke Newton, Jonathon Schaech, Clifton Collins Jr, Kelly Hu, Sean Stewart, Damien Wayans, Craig Wayans, Shoshana Bush, Colby O’Donis, Alex Frost, Dominique Swain, Susie Castillo, Kiely Williams, Jonathan Bennett, Eva Marcille, Jana Kramer, Nikki Griffin, Jacob Vargas, Andrew Keegan, Corinne Kaplan, Mikalah Gordon, Brooke White, Lauren Storm, David Henrie, Julia Voth, America Olivo, Daniel Samonas, Walter Perez, Robbie Amell, Paul McGill, Nikki Griffin, Noureen DeWulf, Roger Cross, Allen Evangelista, Cobi Jones, George Parros, Brian Cook, Amber Borycki, Amy Rider, Antonio Elias, Brennan HIllard, Carrie Keegan, Carolyn Hennesy, Anya, Monzikova, Hypercrush, Kristy Flores, Molly Burnett, Ryan Starr, Sam Sarpong and more.
