After redesigning 2,568 Resort Rooms in the Bellagio Tower in 2011, the AAA Five Diamond resort followed up with a remodel of all 928 Resort Rooms and suites in its Spa Tower in 2012. The completion of the remaining suites in the Bellagio Tower is expected by February 2015.

 

“We want to ensure that all of our guests enjoy the same exquisite luxury and design  Bellagio is known for the world over, no matter which room or suite they may choose,” said Randy Morton, president and COO of Bellagio. “A great deal of thought went into every element of these spaces and we’re thrilled to begin the final phase of this project.”

 

Created by the talented MGM Resorts International Design Group, the suites will offer refined furnishings with high-style surfaces such as lacquer and exotic wood graining as well as sumptuous fabrics influenced by modern fashion. Key design elements and color themes will be consistent with the recently unveiled suites in the Spa Tower, along with a new color palette of spring greens and Dragonfruit pink meant to promote rejuvenation of the spirit.

Carmen Electra Performs Live at the Grand Opening of the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon

American glamour girl, Carmen Electra, hosted the grand opening of the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon (PCDSaloon.com) at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Saturday, June 4.

The bombshell beauty mesmerized guests with a sultry performance alongside the new Las Vegas Dolls. Electra showcased signature moves that have made her a Pussycat Dolls favorite, showing the audience why she is the modern burlesque icon. Wearing sexy over the knee black boots, she danced with the Saloon’s house Dolls to “Don’t Cha,” “These Boots Were Made for Walking” and more.

Dressed in a stunning Stella & Jamie and Christian Louboutins, Electra walked the red carpet while the gorgeous Antin wore a Les Pommettes, Giuseppe rhinestone studded heels and a Chanel belt and clutch. Electra was all smiles as she talked about returning to the Pussycat Dolls scene stating, “Vegas is the perfect place for the Pussycat Dolls and the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon is absolutely beautiful.”

Also walking the red carpet was new father of Moroccan and Monroe, Nick Cannon. Dress casually in a Louis Vuitton letterman jacket, Cannon glowed as he took in crowd congratulations. Inside, local hottie and performer, Matt Goss stopped by to enjoy the show. Sipping on Red Bull vodka while intensely watching the performance, Goss gave the girls a standing ovation after the routine.

Once the show came to an end, Antin thanked Electra for helping to open the new Saloon and Electra excitedly exclaimed, “I am the first to christen the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon. I love being first.” Antin and Electra then moved into Gallery Nightclub where they were surprised with a congratulatory cake from Sugar Factory American Brasserie. The friends continued to celebrate into the early hours of the morning drinking Dom Perignon and Sex on the Beaches.
