Martha’s Vinyard was obviously the place to be on Saturday Night. Barack Obama’s 60th Birthday Celebration was the hottest ticket in town. Scaled back from the original plans of 600 guests due to the threat of COVID-19 and the Delta Variant with a star-studded, private, intimate, outdoor gathering with about 200 of his closest family and friends on the grounds of his 29-acre estate on Martha’s Vineyard. But that didn’t stop the former president from having a great time. The Guests were entertained with performances by John Legend, H.E.R, and Erykah Badu, who gave us mere mortals a sneak peek of the inside of the bash (and Obama’s dancing skills) via her IG Stories. They remained live as of early Sunday morning. However, by about 10 a.m. ET, the video of Obama dancing had been removed from her Stories. H.E.R. tweeted a photo of herself standing in between Michelle Obama and the man of the hour with all three of them sporting big smiles. But that tweet was also ultimately deleted later Sunday morning.
If you didn’t get an invite to the hottest ticket in town-Take a look at some of the guests who attended.
Former President Obama looked cool (no pun intended) all night wearing a Fendi Hortensia Floral Button-Down Shirt, with white slacks and a black beaded necklace H.E.R wearing Lanvin Official and braids created by Theo Barrett. Mrs. Obama opted for a resort-style, custom green halter dress by Dundas, paired the look with Silvia Toledano ring, and a Sophie Buhai bracelet.
