Kendall Jenner Hosts an Epic L.A. Fête in All Black, Parties with Big Sister Kim Kardashian
If you’re looking to party like a Kardashian-Jenner, then the 69th and 70th floors of Los Angeles's U.S. Bank Tower are for you. Home to OUE Skyspace L.A., the space welcomed Kendall Jenner (in a sleek all-black ensemble) as host for a celebratory red carpet affair on Thursday night. Also on hand: big sis Kim Kardashian West (below) as well as Calvin Harris and Shailene Woodley.
After a plethora of pictures and videos documented a sing-along session to Kanye West tracks like “Famous,” the model took the stage to fulfill her hosting duties. “Welcome to OUE L.A.! I’m so excited to be here and I’m so excited to have all my friends out,” she said of Moises Arias and Jaden Smith, who waited for her in a roped off section. “We’re going to ride the slide, and we’re so excited to see Travis Scott perform. I hope everyone has an amazing time.”
Yes, you read that correctly. As if the 360-degree view of the city weren’t enough, the new hot spot features a transparent slide connected to the venue to enhance the experience. Think nostalgic feels of childhood parks, but with a sparkling view of the city instead.
While Floyd Mayweather and AnnaLynne McCord had a chance to preview the open deck before others, McCord came back for more sliding. “I’m excited to do the slide. I will admit I got a chance to do it in the pre-opening of the building. But it’s a lot of fun,” she told InStyle.
After a live performance from Mia Moretti and the Dolls, Travis Scott ordered two life-size Coachella-esque Cacti on stage, causing Moretti to say, “I wish those were mine.”
One song into his set, the “Uber Everywhere” rapper stopped his music due to lackluster support from the crowd saying, “L.A., you’re not at church. You’re not at a book club. You’re at a mini-show.” Showing him their best with cheers, the Houston-native continued without an interruption.
After the rapping came to a close with the hit “Antidote,” Moretti took the stage again to premiere Katy Perry’s new single "Rise" for the crowd, which included Matt Cook, Johnny Wujek, and Harris.
Sounds like Kim has taught Kendall a thing or two about being the ultimate host.
