Moët & Chandon welcomed New Yorkers and notable tastemakers within the entertainment, art, fashion, and culture spheres for an effervescent holiday celebration in New York City, one of 20 global get-togethers hosted by the Maison around the globe to commence the holiday season. The vibrant and fashion-forward crowd enjoyed an evening of music, champagne, and holiday cheer to toast the season and experience the magic of Moët & Chandon.
To write another chapter in the history between the House and NYC, Moët & Chandon brought together a lively crowd to build and share memorable moments. As a hallmark of the occasion, Moët & Chandon commissioned a public sculpture, ‘Your Voices’ by Es Devlin, installed on Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza. Guests previewed the sculpture, which honors New York’s linguistic and cultural diversity, enjoying a performance by NYC-based choirs to mark its unveiling. From December 6-18, ‘Your Voices’ is open for the public to enjoy, and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at 6pm, Lincoln Center will curate a series of New York-based choral groups to perform free for the public. Each choir will represent the vast range of rare and unique voices of the city.
Keeping with the House’s tradition of toasting for a cause during celebratory events, Moët & Chandon partnered with and donated to the Endangered Language Alliance, inspired by ‘Your Voices,’ to preserve global languages in NYC as they move into the future, while encouraging others to toast to causes near their hearts throughout the season.
The star-studded celebration included Jessica Chastain, Daniel Kaluuya, Emily Ratajkowski, Sienna Miller, Michaela Coel, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, Trevor Noah, Jeremy O. Harris, Jesse Williams, Chanel Iman, Megan Rapinoe, Daniel Arsham, Prabal Gurung, Tina Leung, Philip Lim, Laura Kim, Victor Cruz, and Savannah Guthrie, while friends of the House Roger Federer, Sue Bird and Don C joined in the festivities as they popped champagne, danced, and rang in the holiday season.
The celebration was filled with laughter, dancing, and flowing champagne. Attendees enjoyed DJ sets by Heron Preston and Vashtie, who brought energy to the night while performing from inside a champagne tower. The highlight of the night was an iconic surprise performance by none other than the lady of the
season, Mariah Carey, who stole the show with her record-breaking single, ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’, in addition to ‘Big Energy/Fantasy’ mashup and ‘We Belong Together’, thrilling those in attendance and kick-starting the evening’s dance party.
“I had such a fabulous time last night performing at Moët & Chandon’s holiday celebration,” said Mariah Carey. “Kicking off the season with everybody in attendance was glorious!! The fun and festivities were the perfect party starter!”
Other highlights from the evening included a custom gold room photo opportunity, bottle service of Moët Impérial and Moët Nectar Imperial Rose. Trendsetting looks were in full force with gold & silver sequins, festive blazers, embellished details, all captured throughout the night by celebrity photographer Hunter Abrams. The evening kicked off with a welcome toast from Moët & Chandon President & CEO Berta de Pablos Barbier.
“The holiday season is an important and meaningful time for our House – moments of celebration, sharing with those we love and giving back,” said Berta de Pablos Barbier. “As we look towards our 280th anniversary next year, we are honored to collaborate with British contemporary artist Es Devlin to bring this art to Lincoln Center, as we bring the values of Moët & Chandon to New York City. We hope ‘Your Voices’ will be a beacon of light where diverse voices join and blend as a symbol of universality and inclusion. from the most-loved champagne in the world to this iconic city.”
