Romance was in the air Saturday night at LAVO inside The Palazzo as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and her rocker boyfriend rang in St. Valentine’s Day while a new celebrity couple may have been uncovered (Katy Perry and Jessica Hart photo by Jessica Blair).
Playing hostess for the night was Jessica Hart, who graces this year’s Sports Illustrated famed swimsuit issue. The stunner dined at LAVO with boyfriend Nicolas Potts of the band Tamarama, regularly featured on MTV’s The City. Following a romantic dinner, the duo and friends headed to the nightclub where another cute couple was making their affections for each other known.
Katy Perry and Benji Madden arrived at LAVO with a group of 20 for some post-concert celebrating, but the large size of the group did nothing to hide what looks to be a hot new Hollywood coupling. The crew dominated LAVO’s VIP section on the dance floor, just in front of the booth where DJ REACH was spinning. Katy and Benji sat together and chatted closely, occasionally standing up and waving to the crowd with shout outs by REACH. Katy grabbed the microphone and addressed the crowd, telling all “Screw boys, we got girls!” as her hit “I Kissed a Girl” began to play in the background. Despite her instructions to the club goers, Katy clearly only had eyes for Benji.
The two couples met up at one point during the evening and Katy and Jessica chatted and danced together for the crowd.
Also spotted at LAVO was band Plain White T’s, who drank Ketel 1 while being continually surrounded by females searching for a Valentine.
Saturday night at TAO Las Vegas saw a packed house for the club’s Valentine’s Day party hosted by Fredericks of Hollywood. The event featured a fashion show on TAO’S Catwalk of lingerie by Fredericks. Spotted at TAO on Saturday was “Twilight” star Billy Burke who had dinner at TAO Asian Bistro before heading upstairs to the club.
