Ms Collins brought the heat of Brazil and her love of champagne together as she presented Veuve Clicquot Carnaval in July 2015.
From the shores of Miami with Emily Ratajkowski, VCC launched for the first time in Australia at Melbourne’s notoriously popular restaurant and bar, Ms Collins - Hosted by Melbourne beauty Sophie Van Den Akker. After one night of Brazilian x Melbournian bliss, Veuve Clicquot packed up their Carnaval and move onto three other major cities across the nation.
The festivities began from 4pm in Ms Collins’ New World Kitchen for dinner and drinks, showcasing a Latin American menu by chef Paul Wilson – The clever face behind the newly launched Lady Carolina in Brunswick. Menu goodies included smoked Peruvian style quail anticuchos, steak taco sandwiches, crispy chicken and chia calamole taquitos, Lima style ceviche and beef brisket empanadas picadillio. Paired with $100 bottles of Veuve Clicquot NV.
Guests the enjoyed an evening of free flowing champagne from 10pm accompanied with Brazilian RnB beats by Melbourne’s DJ dream team B-Love, Khanh Ong and more. The Rio-inspired Carnaval theme celebrated Veuve Clicquot’s brand signature ‘let life surprise you’. Guests were blown away with Brazilian performances, dances, drummers, venue activations, a beauty room take over by Carlisle Street’s BEAUTYOLOGIST and VIP Veuve Clicquot booths.
