Elizabeth Hurley hosted the Genlux issue release party bearing her cover on March 12, 2015. She wore a figure-flattering white Christian Siriano dress that had everyone wondering how she continues to look amazing at 49. The night was also a celebration of her new show, The Royals, that Elizabeth was in town from London to promote. Guests wandered through the gorgeous and gigantic Eve by Eve's boutique before coming to where the party was—out on the large patio under the stars. Elegant crystal glasses full of Le Medaillon Champagne and vodka drinks by Svedka in great flavors like Vanilla and Mango Pineapple kept the crowd in good spirits while delicious Hint Water kept them hydrated. The Luxe Hotel Rodeo Drive's superb catering team kept the delicious appetizers flowing. E! Channel came out to interview Elizabeth inside the party as a throng of event shooters awaited their turn with her on the red carpet. Sponsors of the evening included Margot McKinney, the Australian-based jeweler whose gorgeous gorgeous (yes, it bears repeating) necklace graces the Genlux cover with Elizabeth.
