The amazing new Vegas destination the SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino opened with a celeb-packed party where well-heeled attendees indulged in flowing booze and feasted on lavish spreads from restaurants like Cleo & José Andrés’ Bazaar Meat as the clock ticked down to a midnight opening.

The invite-only crowd included Dita Von Teese, Aaron Paul, Kellan Lutz, Emilio Estefan, Holly Madison, Maria Menounos, Joe Francis, Emile Hirsch and Brittany Snow, and the party featured performances by Lenny Kravitz, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, JoJo and Jhené Aiko.

At midnight, fireworks erupted from the casino’s rooftop and waiting crowds flooded the new property for a first look at the former Sahara.

Among those who walked a red carpet before entering the SLS included singer Pia Toscano, celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson, past Ultimate Fighting Champion Chuck Liddell, and U.S. men’s soccer team standout Jermaine Jones.

The SLS’s team of designers and celebrity chefs — Chef Josè Andrès, designer Philippe Starck, actor-musician Lenny Kravitz — along with SBE Entertainment CEO Sam Nazarian and other company officials, posed for photos and talked with media outlets.

Kravitz, who designed four suites for the 1,620-room hotel, planned to perform with his band a concert inside The Sayers Club during the VIP party.
