Just in time for the ESPYS, the third installment of the Modern Kings of Culture Portrait Series was held at Sunset Tower in Los Angeles.
The Grey Goose Le Melon hosted event featured an original royal portrait by Kehinde Wiley of Carmelo Anthony. To celebrate the unveiling, celebrities, musicians, and LA socials joined together as Maximillian Chow, of Mr. Chow, moderated the live Q&A between Kehinde and Carmelo. The duo discussed their journeys to extraordinary achievement. The portrait was then revealed for the first time, where Carmelo, a known fan of Kehinde’s work, was visibly proud of the piece.
Following the reveal, invited guests were treated to a seated dinner accompanied by special cocktail pairings for each course. Featured cocktails included Grey Goose Le Melon Score inspired by Carmelo Anthony, the Grey Goose Jardin Royal, the Grey Goose Le Melon Majestic and the Grey Goose Le Melon Cavaillion Crown. Other notable guests included Kelly Rowland, Randy Jackson, Tina Knowles, Matt Barnes, Gina Govan, Jermaine Jones and Legendary Damon.
