Launch Gallery If you’re in the loop on anything to do with either cars or Playmates, you already know that our exclusive VIP cocktail party with Jaguar last Friday in Pebble Beach was absolutely the hottest ticket in town. Celebrating the rebirth of the British luxury car manufacturer, the hilltop estate party overlooking the world-famous golf course and home to Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance was a night full of Bunny suits, dapper cocktails from Belvedere and, of course, our favorite cars to tear up the road.
Among special guests such as Wyclef Jean, Adrien Brody and Billy Duffy was Emmy-nominated Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks, who made an appearance alongside the 1963 Jaguar E-type featured on the top-rated AMC show this season. Other four-wheeled VIPs included Playboy’s 2012 Car of the Year, the Jaguar XKR-S (pictured above), and the very first XJL Ultimate edition.
When Playmates Jaime Faith Edmondson, Hiromi Oshima and Raquel Pomplun weren’t rocking the fire-lit dance floor alongside partygoers to the music of Johnnyswim, one could find them in the ’60s-style photo booth with Mr. Cooper Hefner himself or negotiating a sneak peek at the unreleased F-type sports car from Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.
Rounding out the approximately 450 guests were Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Goss, Brand Vice President David Pryor and Communications & Public Affairs Vice President Stuart Schorr.
*Playboy and Jaguar, a natural fit. *
