BACARDÍ Rum & Vanity Fair Toast to the Oscars with Star-Studded Vanity Party

To kick off pre-Oscars festivities, Vanity Fair and BACARDÍ rum proudly hosted last night’s Vanities Party: A Night for Young Hollywood – a star-studded, invite-only event bringing together some of the biggest names and up-and-comers in young Hollywood to countdown to the Oscars ceremony this upcoming weekend. Hosts of the red-carpet affair this year included Ariana DeBose, Alana Haim, and Giveon, who toasted to the occasion with signature BACARDÍ rum cocktails exclusively crafted for the event, while their fellow stars mingled in the BACARDÍ Rum Room-style setup at Hollywood’s swanky Musso & Frank.

The crowd of elite, young Hollywood newcomers included the likes of model and actress Olivia Culpo, beloved TikToker Tinx, and model and actor Broderick Hunter, plus influencers Lester Grafton and his wife, Shayla Grafton of #makeupshayla, as well as popular content creator Tefi Pessoa – all donning chic getups in keeping with the ritzy soiree. Also spotted were former Insecure co-stars Sarunas Jackson and Kendrick Sampson, catching up over BACARDÍ Ocho, while Cobra Kai co-stars Jacob Bertrand and Peyton List reminisced and toasted to the occasion.

More young Hollywood sightings included Never Have I Ever and Sex Lives of College Girls co-stars Darren Barnet and Gavin Leatherwood who were twinning in gem-toned purple suits, while Renee Rapp danced up a storm amidst the lively crowd. Diplo and Tinx playfully alluded to their will-they-won’t-they relationship, posing for a photo together and both strutting fabulous ensembles. Les and Shayla Grafton bellied up to the Rum Room bar to catch up with Broderick Hunter and Mariama Diallo, while actor, writer, and content creator Benito Skinner chatted up a storm with the Haim sisters. YouTuber Olivia Jade Giannulli – who rocked a ruched black dress – was spotted without Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi and vibed with fellow young Hollywood stars throughout the evening.

Equipped with a BACARDÍ-branded bar, clad in lustrous Caribbean accents and premium bottles, the Vanities Party housed countless photo ops, from a star-worthy step-and-repeat and rich leather furnishings to an entire cigar bar surrounded by palm trees. The glamorous evening and its attendees made for an award-worthy event fit for a night out in Hollywood, complete with BACARDÍ cocktails like the BACARDÍ Ocho Old Fashioned, BACARDÍ Old Cuban and BACARDÍ Oscars Punch – each crafted specifically for the occasion. The rum vibes will continue on Sunday evening, where the BACARDÍ lineup will make its next red carpet appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party.
