Actress, model and former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler, minus Academy Award-winning actor boyfriend George Clooney, hosted Dom Perignon’s Halloween Masquerade at Hyde Bellagio on Saturday night. Before heading to the hotspot behind the Bellagio Fountains, Keibler tweeted, “Who’s joining me @sbe_nightlife for my #masquerade party tonight?!?!” and a photograph of herself in a black mask.
Keibler, an alumnus of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” arrived on the red carpet after 11:30 p.m. wearing a black chiffon dress, a black lace and rhinestone mask and a ponytail. She happily signed autographs for fans after posing for photographs on the arrivals carpet outside Hyde. Inside Hyde, Keibler and her friends made their way to a VIP booth beneath the club’s fireplace and DJ booth as Hyde’s masked performance artists greeted them carrying giant letters spelling “we love Stacy.”
The DJ announced, “We would like to welcome the woman of the hour, the beautiful and talented Stacy Keibler!” Keibler tweeted in response, “And I love you too @sbe_nightlife and @HydeBellagio. So much fun!!” along with another photograph. (Who doesn’t love a woman who has mastered social media?!)
Keibler enjoyed Dom Perignon — naturally — and danced to throwback songs including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” The group snapped photographs in their masks and partied into the early hours to the sounds of DJs Konflikt and Jace One.
Also at Hyde: “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor Pad” star Kalon McMahon with a group of friends. Kalon, in a denim jacket, T-shirt and shades, partied in a VIP booth. Thanks to Cassi Thomas of Erik Kabik Photography and Steven Lawton of WireImage for their photo gallery.
