Sugar and Spice
Austin influencers toast to Teen Vogue's 16th anniversary with sweet hotel party
What:Teen Vogue'sSweet 16
Where: P6 at The Line
The lowdown: Teen Vogue ditched its New York City offices in favor of balmy (like, very balmy) Austin to celebrate the magazine's 16th anniversary with a sweet fête on June 18. Held at P6 at The Line, Teen Vogue editor in chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner played host to a mix of influencers, media types, and the like on the hotel's expansive patio.
The Sweet 16 theme was taken quite literally, with a pink candy bar, cake stands brimming with pink-frosted cupcakes, and a machine spinning out picture-perfect tufts of cotton candy. (Even the air smelled like sugar, which can be a jarring sensory experience in a city that perpetually smells like Santal 33.)
Massive pink balloon installations and celebratory light installations proved festive backdrops for photos, as did the epic view overlooking Lady Bird Lake and the Congress Avenue Bridge.
As the sun set on one of summer's first swelteringly hot days, attendees headed into the air-conditioned bar area to try on jewelry from Lightbox, the party's presenting sponsor. Servers milled about with light bites from P6, including Campari tomato bruschetta, Creekstone Farm beef tartar, and lump crab bites, as well as trays of wine.
With just a few minutes left, Peoples Wagner gathered the crowd together for a celebratory toast and thank you. The crowd cheered — with glasses of pink rosé, of course.
